Spend the day - and night - with 'Harry Potter'

With the recent publishing of a new “Harry Potter” book (“The Cursed Child”) and the future release of spin-off film “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” (Nov. 18), it’s a good time for fans of J.K. Rowling’s young wizard. To promote “Fantastic Beasts,” the entire eight-film “Potter” saga is returning to the big screen — the IMAX screen, to be exact — from Oct. 13 to 15.

The nationwide event will screen locally at the Regal Transit Center Stadium 18 and IMAX (6707 Transit Road, Williamsville). Here's the schedule.

  • “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” noon Oct. 13, 1 a.m. Oct. 14 (late Friday, early Saturday), noon Oct. 15.
  • “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets,” 3:15 p.m. Oct. 13 and Oct. 15.
  • “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban,” 6:30 p.m. Oct. 13 and Oct. 15.
  • “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” 9:45 p.m. Oct. 13 and Oct. 15.
  • “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” noon Oct. 14.
  • “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” 3:15 p.m. Oct. 14.
  • “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 1,” 6:30 p.m. Oct. 14.
  • “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” 9:45 p.m. Oct. 14, 1 a.m. Oct. 15 (late Saturday, early Sunday).

This is fun opportunity to see Harry, Ron, and Hermoine come of age in the finest video and audio possible, and it’s especially nice for newer fans. You haven’t seen Lord Voldemort until you’ve seen him five-stories high.

Tickets are on sale now at Fandango.com for $6 per film. Also available is a daily “Harry Potter Day Event Pass” for admission to multiple films. (Cost is $30 for all of the day’s films.) For more info, visit IMAX.com.
