PotterFest: A Harry Potter Marathon

PotterFest: A Harry Potter Marathon

Accio nine Harry Potter films!

We’re thrilled to be hosting PotterFest – A Harry Potter Marathon at our cinemas to celebrate 20 years since the publication of the first novel.

The twenty-three hour marathon will be showing at the Astor Theatre in Melbourne, Chauvel Cinema in Sydney, Palace Electric in Canberra and Palace Centro in Brisbane and will include all eight Harry Potter Films plus a screening of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Based on British author J.K. Rowling’s bestselling fantasy novels, the Harry Potter film series chronicles the life of a young wizard, Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) and his friends Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) and Ron Weasley (Rupert Grint), all of whom are students at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. The story centres around Harry’s struggle against Lord Voldemort, a dark wizard who intends to subjugate the wizarding world.

The sequel for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is due to open on Palace screens, next year.
