Harry Potter Opens at Cinerama

November 16, 2010

SEATTLE, Nov. 16, 2010 /PRNewswire/ — Cinerama, Seattle’s celebrated movie palace, reopens this week after two months of state of the art technical upgrades and period-perfect renovations to its mid-20th-century interiors. And now, when it comes to communicating with its audiences, Cinerama will be 21st century all the way.

In addition to launching a redesigned Web site — www.Cinerama.com — designed by Portland’s Dojo Agency, Cinerama has new Facebook and Twitter accounts to keep fans up to date: On Twitter, we’re SeattleCinerama and on Facebook find us at Seattle Cinerama Theater (official).

Cinerama was closed for installation of a new wide screen, 3D technology, a digital sound system and upgrades to the interior.

“We think of Cinerama as Seattle’s living room, so we’re excited to connect to the community even better,” said Greg Wood, who operates Cinerama for Vulcan Inc.

Seattle is more than ready to hear everything Cinerama has to dish out, especially if it has to do with “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” The long-awaited film premieres at 12:01 a.m. (a minute after Thursday midnight, November 18).

Wood says the interest and demand for Harry Potter has been enormous, in keeping with the popularity of JK Rowling’s beloved books and the films adapted from them.

Tickets for Harry Potter can be purchased online at Cinerama.com. Prices for adults are $11; matinees (before 6:00 p.m.)/seniors/children are $9.

Seattle Cinerama Theatre, built in 1963, is owned by philanthropist and investor Paul G. Allen, who saved the Cinerama from demolition in 1988. Vulcan Inc. directed a spectacular restoration of the theater’s early 1960s interiors, and brought back the massive, curved screen used for special presentations of Cinerama and 70mm wide-screen movies. Seattle Cinerama is one of only three theaters in the world that can show original three-strip Cinerama films.
