Complete Eight Film Collection; All Tickets $5; Family Fun During November/December Holidays
NASHVILLE, TENN.—The Belcourt Theatre will present the entire series of eight Harry Potter films during its Saturday Kid Shows, Nov. 16 through Jan. 4. Fans of the Harry Potter book series can spend Saturday mornings—including Thanksgiving holiday weekend—at 10 a.m. at the Belcourt to view each book brought to life on film and shown on the big screen (along with fresh popcorn). The series kicks off Nov. 16 with HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE. Saturday Kid Shows’ tickets are only $5 per person, available online and at the box office. For tickets and details, visit belcourt.org.
“Just as these books thrilled millions of young readers (and their parents), so have the films,” says Stephanie Silverman, executive director of the Belcourt. “And just as there’s no match for reading the books, there’s nothing like seeing these stories on a big screen with images, sounds and effects the way they were meant to be experienced. At a time of year when there are so many opportunities for families and friends to spend time together, a big dose of Harry Potter and his wizardry adventures over many weekends seems perfect.”
