I was just contacted about a special sneak peek showing of Half Blood Prince on Sunday, July 12th at 7pm. The movie will be shown at the Cinemark West Plano just off Plano Parkway in Cinemarks Xtreme Digital format. The Tickets are pricey at $25 each but proceeds are going to support a charity, Peaceable Kingdom Retreat For Children.
Located in Kileen, Texas just north of Austin Peaceable Kingdom offers a place for special needs and chronically ill children to enjoy the outdoors, camp, have fun and spend time with other children just like them. PKRC is a non-profit organization and welcomes kids regardless of level of impairment or financial considerations. It seems like a really great organization and definitely a good cause.
For those that didn't want to do the midnight showing on Tuesday because of how late it is or work the next day this would be the perfect chance to see the movie early! To be clear, the official HPDFW premiere event will still be at the Harkins Southlake Towne Center theater July 14th at midnight. The Cinemark showing on Sunday is a separate event that you are more than welcome to attend or not as you see fit. It's a great opportunity to see the movie early and support a good charity.
