In anticipation of the upcoming spinoff movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Warner Bros. and IMAX are bringing all eight Harry Potter movies to IMAX cinemas for a special one-week engagement.
Things will get underway on Thursday, October 13th with a special preview of Fantastic Beasts at 8.30PM GMT (3:30 p.m. EDT, 12:30 p.m. PDT), followed by a week of screenings of the eight movies in the Harry Potter franchise – including the first ever IMAX screenings for Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
“Harry Potter is one of the most beloved film franchises of all time and is incredibly important to the history of IMAX. Therefore, being able to offer each installment—especially the initial two for the very first time in IMAX—makes this a truly magical event for fans,” said Greg Foster, CEO of IMAX Entertainment and Senior Executive Vice President, IMAX Corp.
Tickets for the screenings will be available for single movies, day access (three or more shows in a single day), four-show access (four shows at any date and time) and festival access (unlimited admittance throughout the event).
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is set for release on November 18th.
