"Game of Thrones" fans enjoying the show on the biggest screen get to take a piece of Westeros home with them. The first in line for this month's IMAX screenings will take home a free poster by illustrator Robert Ball, known to "Thrones" fans for his interpretations of the many bloody deaths in the show.

HBO's highest-ever-rated show, "Game of Thrones" is based on the novels of George R. R. Martin, telling the story of rival families scheming and scrapping over the throne of the fantasy kingdom of Westeros. It's on at US IMAX theatres as a prelude to the forthcoming fifth season.

From January 29 to February 5 (not January 23 to 29 as originally announced) you can watch the last two episodes of the fourth season on the big, big screen, and the first 300 ticket holders at the 10 p.m. opening night showing at participating theaters will bag a free poster.

First shown on TV in June, "The Watchers on the Wall" depicts the spectacular Battle of Castle Black, while "The Children" is the series finale. Echoing the title of the "Song of Ice and Fire" novels on which the show is based, the poster for "Watchers on the Wall" depicts flames licking the freezing wall of Westeros with the meme-worthy quote, "You know nothing, Jon Snow," delivered in the show by Ygritte to the Watch Commander. That poster will be handed out at AMC theaters.

The second poster depicts... well, we won't spoil the moment, but it's captioned with the line, "I am your son; I have always been your son." It's yours if you go to another IMAX theatre that isn't an AMC.

The IMAX screenings will also be joined by a trailer for the fifth season. The new series airs on 12 April on HBO in the US, then Sky Atlantic and Now TV the following day in the UK.

In the meantime, half-hour documentary "Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life" goes behind the scenes of season 5 on February 8 at filming locations in Northern Ireland, Croatia and Spain.
