Did someone use their Time Turner to take us back to 2011? Sadly, no, but the ‘Harry Potter’ films are returning to theaters!
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the release of the ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’ novel, the Cinemark theater chain will show all of the ‘Harry Potter’ films at locations across the country from August 31 to September 6.
The company is calling the event ‘Wizarding World XD Week,’ and the lineup will include all eight original film adaptations of J.K. Rowling’s wildly popular saga about everyone’s favorite Boy Who Lived, plus 2016’s spin-off, ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.’
Tickets are on sale now at Cinemark.com and cost $5 per movie. Fans also have the option to purchase a $25 “festival pass” for all nine films, which includes the following:
“Collectible keychain, a specially designed cup that is refillable for $3.50 through the end of the year and a commemorative festival badge.”
This triumphant return to theaters comes just a few months before the premiere of ‘Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald’ on November 16. The second film in the spin-off franchise has released the following synopsis:
Magizoologist Newt Scamander joins forces with young Albus Dumbledore to prevent the devious Gellert Grindelwald from raising pure-blood wizards to rule over all non-magical beings.
So, rejoice Potterheads and grab your Nimbus and fly to the theater! Don’t miss ‘Wizarding World XD Week,’ and catch up on the story of Harry Potter before the new ‘Fantastic Beasts’ hits theaters!
