For a very limited time, you can see every one of the Harry Potter movies in IMAX, ahead of the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Buy a ticket to watch Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets— this is the first time they’ve been available in the IMAX format— or another installation in the series; or buy a festival pass to see every single one, along with sneak peek footage of the upcoming film.
Here’s where and when the Harry Potter movies are playing in IMAX in Delaware.
As my 12 year old daughter has reminded me about eleven thousand times, the newest addition to the wizarding world, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, is about to come out— it’ll be hitting theaters on November 18th.
The proper way to prepare for such an event, of course, is to rewatch all the movies so you’re sufficiently hyped and everything is nice and fresh in your mind (if you’re really dedicated, you’ll reread all the books too, and maybe listen to Eddie Redmayne break your heart a couple of times singing Empty Chairs at Empty Tables. Eddie Redmayne is amazing).
For one week only starting October 13th, you can see all eight of the Harry Potter movies in IMAX at theaters across the country!
Delaware’s only IMAX theater is Penn Cinema, at the Riverfront in Wilmington. At this location, you can buy tickets for the Harry Potter movies in IMAX as an à la carte Single Ticket or you can opt for Festival Access, which gives you unlimited admittance to all the movies throughout the event. The Festival Access ticket is $60; a good deal when you take into account an IMAX ticket is $17. Showtimes + buy tickets here.
If you don’t mind going for a bit of a drive, King of Prussia’s prices are a bit more budget friendly: Harry Potter individual 2D IMAX tickets are $6, Day Passes (3 or more shows in a single day) are $20, and an Event Pass (unlimited admittance throughout the event) are $30. Showtimes + buy tickets here.
I honestly don’t know that I can sit through all eight in the theater. Given that my daughter has never seen any of the Harry Potter movies on the big screen, which ones do you think she absolutely shouldn’t miss?
