Chances are that you’ve probably watched at least one of the “Harry Potter” films — or maybe all of them! Well, now is your chance to enjoy the hugely popular series all over again, because the movies are coming back to select theaters from Aug. 31 through Sept. 6. This joyous news is in celebration of the 20th anniversary of “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” first appearance on bookshelves in the United States. (True fans know the books appeared in the U.K. one year earlier!)
Tickets to see the movies will cost $5 per film, or fans can purchase a limited-quantity Wizarding World XD Week festival pass for $25 to have access to all nine movies throughout the week. The pass comes with a collectible keychain, Harry Potter-themed cup and commemorative festival badge.
Tickets go on sale Aug. 3 at Cinemark.com.
Cinemark will also offer fans a special “Fantastic Beasts” cup for purchase, which will be refillable before and during the opening of the next Wizarding World adventure, “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald,” on Nov. 16.
Additionally, exclusive Wizarding World merchandise will be available for purchase at all participating Cinemark locations.

“The Wizarding World holds a special place in everyone’s hearts, and we know many moviegoers experienced the magic of Hogwarts for the first time in a Cinemark auditorium,” Cinemark CEO Mark Zoradi in a statement. “We are thrilled to welcome them back to our theaters for this exclusive opportunity to relive the magic in Cinemark XD.”
The celebration doesn’t stop there! The New York Historical Society is launching an exhibit in New York City to celebrate the 20th anniversary. Events will include an evening with the series’ audiobook narrator, a walk through Central Park to search for owls, Harry Potter trivia nights and more.
But for those who can’t make it to these events, the movie marathon week should prove to be a celebration worthy of that very first time you cracked the spine on “The Sorcerer’s Stone.” And it’s one you won’t want to miss!
