Campus Theatre brings Harry Potter to the big screen
Remember the good ol’ days?
Waiting in the box office line. Glowing marque lighting the night sky.
Grabbing your Coke and popcorn. Picking out your favorite seat. And watching your variety films on the big screen.
Georgia College reintroduces classic movies to the downtown Campus Theatre.
“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1” hits the screen at 8 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 in Black Box Theatre.
Based on the seventh and final series of Harry Potter novels, “Deathly Hallows” finds Harry racing against time and evil to destroy the Horcruxes.
Along the way he uncovers the existence of three most powerful objects in the wizarding world: the Deathly Hallows. “Harry Potter” is a family pleaser, suitable for all ages.
The Black Box will show the movie using a Blu-ray to project the images onto a 16-foot-by-9-foot screen, a little smaller than a roadside billboard.
The theatre’s new surround-sound system will bring the music and special effects to life.
The university’s Thursday Night Film Series will feature two additional movies:
• Nov. 17 — “Gone with the Wind;”
• Dec. 8 — “Wedding Crashers,” recommended for mature audiences.
“We invite the community to come to the movies and reminisce about times in the historic Campus Theatre where couples met and dated and families spent evenings together,” said Dr. Karen Berman, chair of the university’s theatre department. “There’s not a bad seat in the house.”
Tickets are available at the box office the night of the showings. General admission: $3; students: $2. Seating is limited to 125.
