Warner Bros. is bringing the entire Harry Potter series back to theaters for a one week only IMAX engagement.
The weeklong event begins Oct. 13 and marks the first time both Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets will be digitally re-mastered in IMAX.
The event is part of the lead into the theatrical release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them in theaters this November. Fans attending the Harry Potter IMAX event will get an exclusive first look at a never-before-seen reel from the Harry Potter spinoff film, as well as in-person appearances by talent from the film at two IMAX locations in London and Los Angeles, a live Q&A and more.
The Harry Potter engagement will screen in IMAX 2D and also feature additional content from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, including the exclusive reel from the fan event and specially recorded greetings from star Eddie Redmayne and other talents.
“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 in a statement.
Tickets will be available by means of four separate admission packages: Single Ticket; Day Access (admittance to three or more shows in a single day); Four-Show Access (admittance to four shows at any time on any day); and Festival Access (unlimited admittance throughout the event). Packages offered and pricing may vary by theater.
Event tickets are on sale online and at participating IMAX theaters. Visit IMAX.com/HarryPotter for additional event details, all movie showtimes, and to purchase tickets.
The IMAX release of each film will be digitally re-mastered into the image and sound quality of The IMAX Experience with proprietary IMAX DMR (Digital Re-mastering) technology.
Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them opens in theaters on Nov. 18.
