See ‘Harry Potter’ on a Big Screen in Bryn Mawr
If your kids love the books and movies, here's their chance to see it in a real theater — at a true matinee price.
In big news for fans of the Harry Potter series, the Bryn Mawr Film Institute is screening all eight films in the series on Saturday mornings throughout February and March. It’s a rare chance to see the showstopping movies on a big screen, especially for younger fans who are still discovering the books.
Whether you’re a longtime enthusiast of Harry, Ron, Hermione, Snape, and the rest of the gang or a newer fan, the films will show every Saturday starting at 11 am at BMFI.
The series starts with 2001’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone on February 4, followed by 2002’s Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets on February 11, and 2004’s Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban — directed by Alfonso Cuaron — on February 18. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, from 2005, will screen on February 25. (It’s worth going just for the dragon scene, which is amazing in a theater.)
The series continues in March with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix on March 4, and Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince on March 11. The two-part finale of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows will screen on March 18 (part 1) and March 25 (part 2.)
Tickets for all of the screenings, like all of the theater’s Saturday matinees, are $5 for adults, and $4 for kids.
The Bryn Mawr Film Institute is at 824 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr.
