TICKETS to the second part of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows went on sale in Melbourne today.
IMAX Melbourne Museum General Manager Richard Morrison said fans inundated the IMAX Melbourne website causing it to freeze shortly after tickets to the movie premiere – a special midnight screening on Tuesday July 12 – went on sale at 1pm this afternoon.
To meet the “unprecedented demand” from fans, Mr Morrison said IMAX would be running an additional sessions at 3am on Wednesday July 13.
The Deathly Hallows, the seventh and final instalment in the Harry Potter film series, is split into two parts. The first part was released last November in conventional 2D, but plans for a 3D version were scrapped when the studio was unable to convert the film to 3D in time.
The clash between good and evil will reach its highly-anticipated climax in Part 2, as Harry nears the end of his quest to destroy Voldemort and the Horcruxes, his secret to immortality. The best-selling novels by J.K. Rowling, on which the films are based, concluded in 2007.Release Date: Midnight Tuesday 12 July, 2011
