It turns out there's a 'Harry Potter' movie marathon happening in cinemas this weekend

Harry Potter fans get excited!

It turns out there is a mammoth Harry Potter marathon being hosted at the cinemas this weekend, and it looks like a movie-watchers dream!

While the marathon actually started at Hoyts cinemas on July 5, Kiwi Potterheads won’t miss their chance, because this Saturday and Sunday all eight magical films will be shown one after the other.

Kicking off your weekend at 10:20am is Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, followed by the next three movies, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint.

Then at the same time on Sunday, you’ll pick back up with Order of the Phoenix, and ending the evening with The Deathly Hallows Part 2 at 8.30pm.

Phew!

Don’t think you can make them all in one go? You’re in luck! The theatre is also offering mid-week viewings of films. As is Event cinemas who is also showing our favourite wizard flick! 

What’s more, you will get to enjoy the fantastic films in comfy reclining seats, and get free popcorn refills during the marathon if you’re a Hoyts Rewards members.

Ah, yes, please!
