Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone May 3 & 4
Join us at the Capitol Theatre for a magical screening of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.”
The first of the nine-plus film blockbuster fantasy series is old enough now that new fans of the series likely have not ever had the opportunity to experience the halls of Hogwarts on the big screen. Start the youngster in your life’s escape from the muggle world by entering the fantastical world of Harry Potter here at the historic Capitol Theatre.
Harry Potter (Daniel Radcliffe) is a boy who learns on his eleventh birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses unique magical powers of his own. He is summoned from his life as an unwanted child to become a student at Hogwarts, an English boarding school for wizards. There, he meets several friends who become his closest allies and help him discover the truth about his parents’ mysterious deaths.
We will be transforming the Capitol into an all-out Wizarding World! Join us for our Friday show time to participate in everything from costume contests to special vendors with Harry Potter-themed items. These special programs begin at 6:30 on Friday with the screening beginning at 7:30. Saturday’s show times will begin at 2:30 and 7:00.
On May 3 there will be special pre-movie exhibit and gathering in Capitol Manor upstairs in the Capitol Teatre!
Welcome to Capitol Manor. On the night of May 3 you will discover it upstairs in the Capitol Theatre. Inside you will find several items like a giant Marauder’s Map, Platform 9 ¾, the Hogwarts Express located outside a window and more. To encourage the socialization of the many muggles who visit on that day, Character Coffee will have plenty of Butter Beer on tap and there will be Harry Potter themed cupcakes, chocolate frogs and a full sized Harry Potter themed cake you could win from Sweet Nellie’s Bakery. And to add to the stimulating environment, the Jervis Library will feature trivia from Hogswarts Library!
A costume contest will also take place, so come fully dressed!
