Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: An IMAX 3D Experience

8/25/2009 9:02:49 AM

Harry Potter and the half-blood Prince

Chattanooga, Tenn. (Sept 21, 2009) -  Chattanooga audiences will experience the magical world of Hogwarts in a whole new way when the sixth film in the Harry Potter series opens on the giant, six-story screen at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince has been digitally re-mastered to produce an eye-popping 3D opening sequence, approximately 12 minutes, which will fill the Scenic-City’s largest screen for a truly magical beginning.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince: An IMAX 3D Experience opens Friday, September 25th at the Tennessee Aquarium IMAX 3D Theater. This exciting film will run through the end of October, adding to the seasonal fun at the Aquarium during “Thrills, Gills and Chills.”  

Emboldened by the return of Lord Voldemort, the Death Eaters are wreaking havoc in both the Muggle and wizarding worlds and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was.  Harry suspects that new dangers may lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching.  He needs Harry to help him uncover a vital key to unlocking Voldemort’s defenses, critical information known only to Hogwarts’ former Potions Professor, Horace Slughorn.  Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts.  Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

The two-hour and thirty minute film has been rated PG for scary images, some violence, language and mild sensuality.
