Between physical copies, digital downloads, and frequent airings on TV, it’s easy for fans to watch and rewatch the Harry Potter films. But soon, fans can finally go back to Hogwarts the way many of them first experienced it.
Cinemark announced that it’s bringing all eight Harry Potter movies (plus Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them) to Cinemark XD theaters from Aug. 31 to Sept. 6 for “Wizarding World XD Week.” Although the week-long festival falls during the anniversary of the Hogwarts Express’ annual journey from King’s Cross Station to Hogwarts, it’s likely geared more toward getting fans excited for the upcoming release of Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald.
For those unfamiliar with XD, it’s an immersive movie experience that includes a screen large enough to stretch across walls, a “state-of-the-art projector capable of 35 trillion colors,” and “custom surround sound.”
Fortunately, you won’t need to gather too many galleons for this endeavor. For $25 (plus sales tax), you can purchase a pass to see all nine films included in the lineup and receive a keychain, a cup you can use for refills until Nov. 30, and a badge. But if you only want to see a handful of films or just one, they’re only $5 apiece.
For some fans, attending Wizarding World XD Week won’t be easy. Tickets are limited, but the location will be another big factor. There are only 141 Cinemark XD theaters in the U.S., and some states that have a limited number of theaters don’t have any suited for XD. (For example, there is only one Cinemark theater in New York—in Rochester—and it doesn’t feature XD.) But for those who can get there, it could be something magical: Living and reliving the experience of seeing Harry Potter in a theater isn’t the kind of thing you can just conjure up.
