Up until the last couple of years I’ve had a tradition of going to the cinema for my birthday. I guess I was lucky in that the new Harry Potter film always came out around then. I can still remember when I saw the Half Blood Prince and the death eaters fly through London and destroy the millennium bridge, in the IMAX it was in 3D and it looked amazing.
