Prepare for more than 20 hours of magic, muggles!

Muggles, get out your quills and take note of this magic filled weekend: There’s a Dubai cinema showing all the Harry Potter movies in succession this August.

The Harry Potter Movie Marathon will see Reel Cinemas show all eight movies in the Harry Potter series across two nights on Friday August 23 and Saturday August 24.

In total, it amounts up to a total of 20 hours when you watch it back to back, but don’t worry, because the films will be split into two.

On day one you will watch Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Day one will last about 11 and a half hours, and don’t worry, Reel Cinemas have also accounted in time for breaks.

On day two you will watch Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 followed by Part 2.

Day two will last 11 hours with breaks after which you can retreat back to your house(s).

You have two choices of two Reel Cinema locations to choose from, Dubai Marina Mall or Rove Downtown, and the marathon begins at 11am.

The Harry Potter Movie Marathon will set you back Dhs220 for both days, that’s Dhs110 per day and you will need to book each day separately.

Before you grab your brooms to fly off to Reel, make your advance booking for the Harry Potter Movie Marathon here.

We don’t have a parliament of owls to send this post out, but make sure you share this magical news with your mates.
