After Game of Thrones came to IMAX in North America last month, overseas fans–and there are a lot of overseas fans of Game of Thrones–demanded to know when they’d have the chance to see it on the big screen. We’re now getting the first confirmation of Thrones in IMAX outside the States.
The Odeon cinema in Milton Keynes, near London, is opening on February 26th and including Game of Thrones at the center of their opening ceremonies. They have an exclusive release of the final two episodes of Season 4, “The Watchers on The Wall” and “The Children.” We knew that Thrones had been successful in IMAX here, and this news indicates that the success has not gone unnoticed. The big question is whether this is a one-time event or if we’ll see more than one theater–or theatre, as it were–or if this will remain exclusive.
A few different sites are reporting the news and offering chances to win tickets. Here’s MKWEB and DIY Magazine. Flicks and the City is running a contest as well. If you spot some others, let us know in the comments and we’ll put up links to those contests as well.
