So what are you doing this weekend? If you're in or around the New York City area and happen to be a Harry Potter nut, you can head on over to the legendary (and quite awesome, if I may say so myself) Ziegfeld Theatre to catch a marathon of all five Harry Potter films. One would think a promotion like this might be better off arriving, say, right before Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince hits theaters on July 17, 2009, but perhaps this is for those fans who are still pissed the release date for Half-Blood Prince was pushed back eight months and, subsequently, are itching for a big-screen Potter fix.
Now, the actual Potter marathon -- in which all five films are screened in order of when they were released -- is only taking place on Friday, December 19th, Saturday, December 20th, and Sunday December 21st ... and those shows begin at 10am with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. The screenings, however, will run through Wednesday, December 24th. You can purchase advance tickets over at the Clearview Cinemas website, and you can check out a complete schedule after the jump. Trust me when I tell you that the Ziegfeld Theatre absolutely rocks, and is definitely a prime spot for this sort of marathon.
Extra Bonus: For those who don't live near New York City, the Potter fan documentary We Are Wizards is now available via Amazon VOD to rent or buy (our review is here). Check it out.
