Stay up all night with Harry Potter (and a bunch of fans)  
The subject line seems terribly apropos for Draco's birthday :D

So who wants to see TINY TOM FELTON and TINY DAN RAD and TINY RUPERT GRINT and TINY EMMA WATSON? And who does not care for them but wants to see ALL THE STARS IN THE BRITISH SKY being variously fantastic?

The London IMAX is having a MASSIVE HP marathon, to celebrate the franchise before the very last film. On the Friday night the first four films are shown, and on the Saturday they’ll show the last three.

The showings cost £29.50 for adults, £18.00 for students and £21.00 for concessions. There’s a discount of £10 if you book both nights (£5 for students) and I’m hoping I can get us a group discount.

They’re very much all-nighters, going from 11:45 to 9:30 in the morning. But there’s free tea and coffee to keep you going and I reckon the excitement of doing this as a big group thing -- preferably ALL DRESSED UP LIKE MOFOS -- will keep us all awake and squealing to the last wallslam :D

So! Natch you can book your own tickets but I’d love to do this as a Diacon trip a la the trip to see DH1, so here’s a poll. I’m going to close it on Wednesday night, so that booking can happen without us losing all possibility of good seats -- although of course anyone can book themselves and come along as and when they choose. I’d like to book a big chunk at the same time if people can Paypal me their money or whatever, but I’ll also post which seats Diacon people are booking, so you can book it yourself and get a seat with us :D

I have definitely forgotten some crucial details of organising this (though some I’m simply going to deal with later) so please do ask! And I hope lots of people can come!!! :D

I’ll set up two threads below, so that we can organise with each other about which we’re going to - I’m going to go to the 17th/18th showing, for instance. If you’re not sure, do let us know you’re thinking about it, just in case :)

I would love to be able to join you in that. Alas, my days of pulling all-nighters are long since over. Even sadder, I can't drink any caffeine to help me stay awake.

It sounds like fun though. Hope you get loads of people joining you.

Fair enough :) Save your staying-up-late energies for Diacon ;)

Fingers crossed! There are four of us so far, which is not bad at all for how long the post's been up :)

I'll post here as well. Me, memememe! But then I did tell you about it, so obviously I am in. Same for the 17th/18th showing as well.

It should still be happening. I think loki's in a communications blackspot at the moment, just been trying to raise her to check on progress. But so far the tickets haven't been booked. Are you interested in coming or are you already going?

Are you interested in the 17/18 or the following weekend? I'm aiming for the 17/18.

Maybe hold off on booking, I think the plan is to aim for a block to try to get a better discount. Right now I'm trying to judge the size of the group that we have so far. Posted over on diacon-alley LJ to get an idea of anyone over there.

This is in case loki has fallen into a communication blackspot and can't book the tickets, I'm good to take over.

Hi, one thing is that the tickets are going so it might be harder to book a group together if we wait much longer?

Looking now there are 5 seats in row 7 from the front on the right (would be left of the screen) with 5 more behind or 3 in front.

Or else 6 in row 4 from the front on the right.

Or 8 in row 5 on the left.

The only centre seats are right at the front which I would really really not want (especially in the IMAX!)

Sorry if this is a bit random, just a quick note from work!

No worries, just booked a bunch based on people loki knows are coming. She'll PM people when she gets back off the train, which should be soon. As I have no idea who i've booked for, also price, those were too very different numbers I got quoted for. Although I do know our section (L on the 17th and J on the 18th, having been before the right rows (admittedly more than is sane), and the view's not too bad from those sides).

You and your friend are booked for :) Lemme know if they can't make it!
