Harry Potter movie opening?

My friend and I were getting excited about the HP IV opening, when we realized that it's the weekend of this con!

I've got the hotel and all set up, but I am not from the immediate area and want to know if there's any theaters around the hotel area.

Also, is anyone else is planning to dress up and go? We usually dress up for big opening nights like this, but with a con and all this ought to be different 0_o'

SO yeah, anyone going? And if so where's the best place to catch the movie (midnight premier??) We've checked the hotel info and google-ed it, etc but can't get anything solid.

Thanks in advance!

((Also, I understand that this isn't "anime-related", but I figure there'll be plenty of others interested in the HP fandom attending the con! ^_^))

There's a theater near the hotel, don't know too much about it just seen it while driving in the area. I'll try to post an address or other info after work tomorrow. I'm planning to see an early showing of Goblet on friday, will be wearing my Angelina Johnson costume.

I'll keep my eye open for movie times and other fun and post if I find out anything.

Awesome! Thank you! ^_^ I guess as the movie gets closer I'll know if there's a midnight showing or not. Can't decide if we wanna go early Friday, or pretty late on Friday.

I appreciate it though!

My friend Mikey was raving about that and we also just realized this a week ago. I suppose I will try the same. Do update that address! <3 See you there.
( I'll probably be going in my Myrtlu Manga Costume or a common Gryffindor. )

The theater closest to the Sheraton is Cineplex Odeon Tyson's Fairfax Square, address is 8065 Leesburg pike. you can buy tickets through fandango (#802). It's pretty close, so walking to the theater shouldn't be a problem and parking is always a pain in Tyson's anyway.

Pretty much leaning toward seeing Goblet in the morning since not much happens at a con on Friday until early afternoon, but we should wait until they start selling tickets before deciding.

Awesome, thank you!! Yeah, I agree. Wait till ticket sales and times come up, then we can decide what to do! ^_^

I know at least myself and 2-3 other people will be going, so we have a decent little group going here I don't have any particular character in mind. Probably just Ravenclaw # 11 or something like that. Either way it ought to be fun.

I'd love to go see it sometime that weekend, especially with other people. Of course, I probably won't dress up just because I don't have the time to make another cosplay.

Oh boy! Sounds like a plan! >:P I used to go to that theatre a lot when I was younger. It's HUGE. Be careful not to get lost in the parking lot! O_O I dunno what i'll be wearing. But I vote we all carry the con-badges! Ya know... to... identify eachother...

My family saw the first two Star Wars prequils on the midnight showings. It's tough to stay awake! ^_^;;
