For all you muggles out there who were so tragically unfortunate as to have missed the past seven 'Harry Potter' movies on the big screen, AMC Theatres has heard your cries and answered your prayers in true hardcore movie-nerd fashion.
Starting on Monday, July 11 and leading right into a midnight showing of 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II' on Friday, July 15, at select AMC Theatre locations across the United States will be screening all the 'Harry Potter' movies back-to-back over the course of four nights. Going in chronological order from 'Sorcerer's Stone' on and carrying a hefty $45 cost of admission to sit in on the whole thing ($20 if you just want to see the two 'Deathly Hallows' movies), at least you'll also get a collectible lanyard and booklet that you can show off with pride to the guys on your intramural Quidditch team.
Sure, you could just and rent them off like Netflix or borrow them from any kid within arms reach, but this is a once-in-a-lifetime deal, folks.
While AMC will be screening the back-to-back 'Deathly Hallows' movies in 288 locations, only 35 theaters will be going through the whole shebang. So hit the jump to see the full schedule and visit the AMC website to see if your local theater made the cut.

Definitely not the easiest of commitments to meet, but for such a momentous occasion for such a huge franchise, we can't really think of a better lead-in to the big day even if the $45 price tag is a tad criminal. Not to mention it's probably the last time you'll probably to be see these on the big screen unless Warner Bros. pulls a George Lucas and one day converts them all to 3D.
What do you think: Gonna stick to watching the movies at home, or you're already clearing out your schedule?
