Harry Potter films to go out with a bang

9th June 2011

The British Film Institute (BFI) is to celebrate the release of the eighth and final Harry Potter film by screening all seven previous adaptations of J. K. Rowling's hugely popular series in two special all-night marathons.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 will be released worldwide on July 15th and brings to an end a series which started with the adaptation of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in 2001.

To mark this occasion, the BFI will screen the seven previous films in a 20-hour marathon across the nights of June 17th to 18th and 24th to 25th.

Fans attending the screenings have been encouraged to dress up as their favourite characters from the series, from Hogwarts students to the dreaded Death Eaters.

Justin Johnson, head of operations at BFI Imax, revealed that fans should have no problem staying up through the night to watch the films.

'We can't wait to welcome the biggest and bravest Harry Potter fans in the country. If they see every film they'll spend almost 20 hours in the company of all their favourite characters,' he commented.
