Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, the sixth in the film series based on the books by JK Rowling, released on Friday and theatres across Delhi recorded a remarkably high occupancy rate for a weekday.

PVR Cinema officials said the occupancy rate across the city was about 75 per cent. Many fans were left disappointed as no tickets were left for the weekend.

Trade analyst Amol Mehra said box-office collections were decent all over India, in line with the record $104 million raked in worldwide during the film’s first day in theatres.

Shonali Shroff, corporate communications head of Train Cinemas, which runs a chain of film theatres in Bangalore, Mumbai and Kolkata, said, “Such is the Pottermania that people are willing to watch anything in the name of Potter.”
