OotP IMAX on Long Island

Jul. 12th, 2007 | 01:05 am
posted by: midnitemaraud_r in nyc_hpslashers

Okay, so it turns out Long Island has an IMAX theater (I had no idea!) and it's showing OotP, and it's only 20 minutes away from xingou and I here, so we're thinking about going Friday night to the 9:45 showing. (Well, I'm going to call about tickets and availability tomorrow - the online tickets.com link isn't working.)

So I figured I'd post and see if anyone else was interested in going with us. The theater is at The Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City (right across the street from the Nassau Coliseum and near the Roosevelt Field and Fortunoff Malls).

Anyone? Bueller? Bueller?

Now I'm not able to go to this but I thought I'd share the knowledge in case anyone wanted to go.

Rupert GRint is going to be at FAO Schwartz on July 13th to help them open their 1st Harry Potter Shop. FAO is located at 5th Ave & 58 St. Rupert will be there from 12pm-1pm. (So small window of oportunity for yall. They've also advertised for people to come dressed as your fave character (supposedly they have contests and prizes and such)

Good luck to anyone who's going. :)

Tuesday Plans

Jul. 9th, 2007 | 10:25 pm
posted by: xingou in nyc_hpslashers

Ok, so the plan is to meet at The Heartland Brewery between 8 and 9pm tomorrow night.

Heartland Brewery Union Square
35 Union Square W @ 17th St
212-645-3400

We'll have dinner and then at some point we will migrate to the theater.

AMC Loews 19th St East 6
890 Broadway
(212) 260-8173

Everyone should have their tickets paid for already because I have no doubts that they will be sold out. You can use your credit card at the theater to print the ticket out if you don't have a printer at home.

You can call me at 516-998-5602 if you are running late and need to find out exactly where we are or if you have any other questions.

Take pity on a bridge-and-tunneler!

I've reserved a copy of DH at Books of Wonder. When I talked to them, they said they're taking preorders via credit card, and starting at 8 p.m. you can get a place in line. At midnight, their staff will be handing out books and checking names off the list of preorders. The big change from the HBP party is that they're not going to have people who reserved a copy paying that night. Instead, they're charging everyone's credit cards on Monday (I'm assuming they're checking the list of people who actually picked up their books against the list of people who preordered) and just handing the books out to people in line who preordered starting at midnight. Much faster! Yay! But my problem is that I live in an area of NJ not serviced by NJ Transit and the last bus home leaves at 12:45. Is there anyone I can crash with on Friday night? I promise to go home early on Saturday so you can read.

Speaking of Books of Wonder, um, who's coming with me? And are we dressing up?

OotP on Tuesday!

Jul. 7th, 2007 | 03:23 pm

posted by: xingou in nyc_hpslashers

So, some people have expressed interest in meeting up on Tuesday before we head over to see the movie. I am thinking that if we want to get seats together we should get in line fairly early. How early do you guys think we should get there?

So depending on the consensus we could get together for dinner a couple hours before hand somewhere in the Union Square area. What sounds good to you? I will compile all of the suggestions for times and a place for dinner and put up a poll tomorrow that will also include a roll call so that I can send out an email to the people who will be there on Monday.

This is going to be SO MUCH FUN! XD

I bought two tickets, and now my sister learnt that she has to work, so she changed her mind.

If anyone still needs the ticket, let me know, and I'll sell you mind. See everyone on the 10th.

Movie Night Details... sort of

Jul. 7th, 2007 | 09:37 am
posted by: ziasudra_fic in nyc_hpslashers

So it seems like we have quite a bunch of people who will be going to the midnight viewing! Alas, something in RL has come up for me and I must pass on the planning responsibility to someone else. I know there's interest in meeting up beforehand so we can go to the theater together. xingou has very kindly volunteered to organize something that evening, so look for more information from her in the near future!

Details for Midnight Viewing

Jun. 25th, 2007 | 09:41 am
posted by: ziasudra_fic in nyc_hpslashers

After discussing amongst those who've responded to the poll, we've decided to do the viewing at a theater that's both easily accessible via public transportation and not in the touristy area of midtown.

So here are the offficial details:
Date: Late night July 10/early morning July 11
Time: 12:01 a.m. showing of OotP
Location: AMC Loews 19th Street (very close to the northwest side of Union Square)

There will probably be dinner/stuff beforehand for people who can make it.

Learning from last time's mistake, I called the movie theater and they said the 12:01 a.m. showing is only going to be shown in one theater. So the good news is, no one will get separated this time. But this means we need to get tickets quickly, since one theater = not too many seats.

I have a list of people who are definitely/most likely going listed behind the cut:

OotP Movie Viewing People ListCollapse )

So everyone, buy your tickets now! And if you've bought a ticket for the same viewing and are not on the list, please drop me a comment to let me know :D
