Goblet of Fire

IMAX: This is the ultimate way to see, feel, and experience Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. Assigned seating and no lines plus a six-story screen and surround sound that makes you feel like you are practically a part of the scenes--I was in awe of the IMAX Harry Potter experience for a good portion of the movie. This is my favorite book of the series so far, and the movie had a lot to live up to. With the limitations of a 2 1/2 hour timeframe to cover the contents of a 700+ page book, I was not disappointed with the results (unlike move #3, which disappointingly left a few key things out). As a fan, I would have preferred it to be a little longer with a few additions from the book, but am otherwise satisfied with how it turned out.

Thanks to Anitza, who organized and fronted the money for all twenty (!) of us, and for providing some fun and wonderful treats, like the Ice Mice, Bertie Botts Beans and Fizzing Whizzbies. The evening was more than worth our admission ticket!
