Empire Cinemas Hosting a Potter-thon
As any discerning Harry Potter fan will know, the latest movie based in J. K. Rowling’s ‘Potterverse’ – Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, is released on the 18th November in the UK. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, Empire Cinemas has programmed an eight week Harry Potter-thon, showing in all 13 of their cinemas across the UK.
The Potter marathon kicks off with showings of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone on Sunday 11th September and continues every week, wrapping up on Sunday 30th October with the last instalment; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2.
The film screenings will be shown Sundays at 12pm, as well as Tuesdays at 6pm. Potter fanatics will be pleased to hear that they can see all the movies at the fantastic, credit crunch busting Sav£rday price, on both days.
Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them sees Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne seeking magical creatures in the many decades before Harry Potter arrives at Hogwarts. ‘Magizoologist’ Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) embarks on his mission to catalogue the world’s magical creatures, encountering extraordinary characters along the way, including a wizard named Graves (Colin Farrell).
Jon Nutton, Marketing Director of Empire Cinemas says, “We’re really excited to be hosting this Harry Potter-thon at our cinemas. There is a huge love for Harry Potter in the UK and with the exciting release of Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them in November, this is the perfect time to get involved in some Pottermania.”
