‘Harry Potter’ Movies to Return to IMAX Screens This Month

Cast members are set to appear at some Los Angeles showings

All eight “Harry Potter” films will return to movie theaters during the week starting October 13, IMAX announced on Monday.

The movies have been digitally remastered and will be shown in IMAX 2D to celebrate the upcoming release of the “Harry Potter” spinoff “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” which hits U.S. theaters on November 18 and stars Eddie Redmayne.

According to KTLA, cast members will show up at select screenings in both Los Angeles and London, and this limited engagement marks the first time that all of the films will be shown consecutively in U.S. theaters. Attendees will also catch an IMAX exclusive sneak peek of “Fantastic Beasts.”

The “Harry Potter” films grossed $7.7 billion worldwide since the first movie’s debut in 2001. All eight films have earned $216 million on IMAX screens. Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson, Rupert Grint, Alan Rickman, Tom Felton and Maggie Smith starred.

Tickets will be available in separate admission packages: Single Ticket, Day Access (which is three or more shows in one day), Four-Show Access (admittance to four shows at any time, any day) and Festival Access (unlimited admittance). Ticket prices vary by theater.

In August, it was announced that a sequel to “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” written by J.K. Rowling, will hit theaters in 2018.
