A Tease from IMAX

If you happen to live in or near a town with an IMAX theater, it may be that you'll be one of the lucky ones who will get to see GAME OF THRONES on the big, big, BIG screen on January 29.

HBO will be screening the last two episodes from season 4 -- "Watchers on the Walls" and "The Children" -- at selected IMAX theatres for one week only.

Here's a taste:

Alas, the Jean Cocteau does not have an IMAX screen.  There is an IMAX down in Albuquerque, but last I heard, it was not one of the theatres selected for those promotion, so New Mexicans are out of luck.

But not completely -- the Jean Cocteau WILL be doing another free GAME OF THRONES marathon this year, screening all of the episodes from season four on our... alas... modest medium-sized screen.  We do hope to have cast and crew joining us via Skype, however.  So watch this space closely for details, and go to the Cocteau web site and sign up for our newsletter.

And all you folks who have an IMAX near at hand, enjoy the spectacle.

Cool idea from HBO...
...though they should've started it out with the last 10 minutes from episode 8!

Unfortunately I don't even live in a country with Imax.

Great trailer. Especially like the tease with Tyrion falling out of Varys' crate.

On another note, I was just in Barnes and Noble, looking for a Game of Thrones monopoly game, but didn't see it (as it does not apparently exist). If I may humbly offer a suggestion, perhaps that might be a good opportunity to market the game? I'd certainly prefer Asshai to Baltic Avenue, if that would be something that you'd consider. Someone has already created a version on iOS, but a physical version would be neat, and I'd love to buy that!

George I know that this isn't a football post, but what are your thoughts on the Patriots deflating footballs in the AFC championship game? Just when I thought Belichick couldn't sink any lower...

The Seahawks game though? Wilson crying at the end? How can people not love them?

Awesome! And I hope, we can see it in Russia...

I would love to see this!

I am happy. The episodes will be showing here! I am going. Took the afternoon off from work!

Cool idea!

I got my ticket for the IMAX screening yesterday, after being pleasantly shocked to find out that the nearby theater that i frequent was hosting it, and that there were daytime showings. I didn't expect to be able to see the show on the (really) big screen in my area, but i'm really happy i checked, and will get to. Looking forward to it.

The Iron Throne...
Will the Iron Throne be making an appearance in Santa Fe this year?

The wait for this is excruciating!
It's time for another Game of Thrones marathon. I wonder if I can stay awake for 40 hours.

Thank you Mr. Martin!

We will only be doing ten.

Very cool idea, was wondering when / if it would happen.

Here's hoping this gets revisited again in the future (final episode, final season)

Looking forward to the new season, and how EVERYONE will be surprised.

Just found out there's an IMAX theater about an hour and a half away from me, so it's ON! Yes!

I was lucky enough to get a few tickets when they went on sale last week, and next Friday my friends Marc and Eireen and I are going to see it in an IMAX in New York City. Can't wait!

I'm going Jan 31!

Should tell HBO if they do it next year it should be scheduled for AFTER the DVD comes out so I could re-watch 1-8 first...

I already bought my ticket I am very much looking forward to it!

I only go to movie theaters about three times a year, one of those times being AMC's Best Picture Marathon immediately preceding the Oscars. So by the end of February I only have one more movie left to fulfill my 2015 quota!

I'm driving 250 miles to the nearest Imax...
Yes, I'm insane. But I CAN'T WAIT.
