Grab your cloaks! All eight Harry Potter films are returning to theaters in honor of J.K. Rowling’s upcoming fantasy film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. According to Variety, Imax and Warner Bros. are set to screen each film in the franchise for one week starting on October 13.
This will be the first time the franchise’s first two films, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, will be shown in Imax theaters.
A never-before-seen reel from the Harry Potter spinoff Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will also be shown at select theaters on October 13, and in-person appearances from the film’s stars will occur at theaters in L.A. and London as part of a global fan event.
“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,” Greg Foster, CEO of Imax Entertainment and senior executive vice president of Imax Corp, told Variety in a statement. (According to Variety, the franchise has grossed $216 million to date for Imax.)
Harry Potter fans will also be able to purchase different packages for the week-long festivity.
According to Variety, fans can purchase a “single ticket; day access (admittance to three or more shows in a single day); four-show access (admittance to four shows any time, any day); and festival access (unlimited admittance throughout the event).”
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which stars Eddie Redmayne, Colin Farrell and Katherine Waterston, hits theaters November 18.
