See Harry Potter 5 & 6 Before Deathly Hallows Part I at Midnight
We just recently found out about the encore presentation of Back to the Future to celebrate the film's 25th anniversary courtesy of AMC Theatres. Well, with the conclusion of the Harry Potter franchise around the corner, the movie theater chain has planned another event to lead right into the midnight opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I on Thursday, November 18th. AMC Theatres is holding The Harry Potter Adventure, which will allow you to watch Order of the Phoenix and Half-Blood Prince in theaters right before the midnight premiere of Part I of the epic finale. More details below!
Starting at 6pm on November 18th, 140 AMC theaters across the nation will show the fifth ans sixth installments of the Harry Potter franchise just before the first screening of the first portion of the two-part finale. Tickets will be $20 each and are currently on sale. The event page at the official AMC website has set up this link here to find your nearest theater. However, for those not near larger metropolitan areas, it's not as easy to find the nearest theater in this manner. My recommendation is to use Twitter and contact the @AMCHelps customer service account to help find the nearest participating theater or check out their contact information for customer service right here. Will you be part of the Harry Potter Adventure?
No I will not. Another waste of money event that goes on. Why bother with only 5 & 6 at the theater before watching 7. A real waste of money IMHO or a very clever way for AMC to babysit your kids when you are out for a night of good old adult fun. Fine dining, the wine, then the hanky panky in the hotel room. About $10 each to watch 5 & 6 again and a few dollars more for the new one, a definate PASS!!

$20 for 3 movies is a good deal, but at 8 hours at the theater you'll end up spending $50 at the concession stand.

Someone tell AICN that someone stole Butt-numb-a-thon from them

I thought this sounded great, but I looked at the AMC page, and found out it's a digital projection. I know not everyone agrees, but I really, really hate watching 35mm filmed movies shown digitally. It doesn't ruin the movie, but 35mm is far superior, and I hate theatres that don't show the movie in its original, film-based format. 35mm is warmer and crisper than digital, and digital projections smooth out that warmth and detail from the image, in my humble opinion. So no go for me. I was excited to go see Deathly Hallows at IMAX on midnight, but the tickets sold out before I could buy them!
