Harry Potter movie marathon coming to AMC Theatres

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: In much the same way that the multiplex chain sponsored an “Lord of the Rings” marathon, AMC Theatres revealed plans for a “Harry Potter” film festival leading up to the release of the eighth and final installment, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.”

“You’ve spent the last decade immersed in the Harry Potter epic. Now, witness the finale in its entirety and be among the first to see the final film, shown in RealD 3D,” the chain posted on its Web site.

The screenings will begin Monday, July 11, and run the entire week.

“See two of the films each night, Monday, July 11 through Wednesday July 13 at 6 p.m. Then, on Thursday, July 14, see Part 1 of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows at 9 p.m. right before catching the premiere of Part 2 at 12:01,” AMC spells out.

For $45, fans get a ticket that includes admission to all eight films, a commemorative lanyard, and retrospective booklet.

So, will you go? Or will you watch the “Potter” films at home as you prepare for “Deathly Hallows” and the end of the franchise?
