Settle In Potterheads, This Cinema Is Holding A 20-Hour ‘Harry Potter’ Marathon

Attention Potterheads! Don your robes, practice your hexes and summon all your spare cash – the Chauvel Cinema in Paddington, Sydney, is holding a ridikkulus Wizarding World movie marathon featuring all eight Harry Potter-series films as well as the prequel Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. Be ready for a slog, though – the marathon runs from 11am on Saturday November 3 until 7am the next day.

In preparation for the forthcoming sequel to Fantastic Beasts, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes Of Grindelwald, on 16 November the cinema figured you’d maybe forgotten all the details of the other films in the franchise. Their idea? Holding the ultimate mega-fan Harry Potter marathon so you can catch up in time.

The new Fantastic Beasts movie trailer was released recently, showing plenty of callbacks to the original Harry Potter films, including boggarts, the Mirror of Erised and Nicolas Flamel, so if you’re a dedicated witch or wizard, you’ll want to be down on all your Wizarding World lore.

There’s no better time to show off that it’s wingardium levi-OH-sa, not levio-SA.

Wands at the ready! You can book tickets now through the Palace Cinemas website.
