Don’t Tell the Muggles – Harry Potter Opens Today in IMAX at HMNS!

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at HMNS

Accio! Lumos! Peskipiksi Pesternomi!

Luckily, you don’t need a magic spell to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 1 – it opens today in the Wortham IMAX Theatre at the Houston Museum of Natural Science!

As if we needed any other proof that the first part of the conclusion to the Harry Potter saga is truly an epic event, our IMAX crew sent over some photos from the assembly of the film.

That’s right – the film does not arrive in one piece (a surprise to me!) And Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows –  Part 1 came in 44 separate reels, which took our staff nine full hours to assemble.

If you look closely at the photo below, you can see the titan Harry Potter reel on top – and a much smaller, regular 40 minute IMAX reel on the bottom.

What’s that? You’re still skeptical that Harry Potter is kind of a big deal? Ask the 500+ people who showed up at the museum for our midnight – and 3 am showings – of the premiere! Allison is working on a wrap-up post from the event – full of potions, magical animals, Muggles and some truly amazing costumes – but in the meantime, here’s a photo from last night’s festivities!
