Cinemark to Bring ‘Harry Potter’ Films Back to Theaters to Celebrate 20th Anniversary of First Book

Even with the Fantastic Beasts series filling the magical void, there’s just something unique about the specific world of Harry and his friends that holds a special place in the hearts of fans worldwide.

In honor of the 20th anniversary of the release of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s Stone (or Sorcerer’s Stone), the Cinemark theater chain is re-releasing all of the Harry Potter films at their locations around the US for a limited time: from Aug. 31-Sept. 6. The company is calling the event “Wizarding World XD Week” and will also be showing screenings of 2016’s Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Each movie will be $5 or you can purchase a $25 “festival pass” on the Cinemark website here. The pass includes all nine films, a collectible keychain, a festival badge and a commemorative cup that can be refilled for $3.50 for the rest of the year.

Two months after the festival, magic will return to the theaters again with the release of spin-off film Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald on November 16.

So do you plan on camping out at your local theater to marathon the series, or are you just going to do that in the comfort of your home? Let us know in the comments below!
