Harry Potter fans will recognise September the 1st as the day when Hogwarts students eagerly return for the school year. So, to mark the occasion, we've got some exciting news for muggles and wizards alike: Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone will be returning to Cineworld screens for its 20th anniversary. And tickets are now on sale.
The movie screens from Friday 29th October to Sunday 31st October, and promises to be a magical half-term treat for Harry Potter acolytes and newcomers alike. Venture back to Hogwarts in the first movie from one of the biggest franchises of all time, a film that introduced us to Daniel Radcliffe's Harry, Emma Watson's Hermione and Rupert Grint's Ron.
Directed by Chris Columbus (who would also helm the second movie, The Chamber of Secrets), The Philosopher's Stone opens its doors to extraordinary Hogwarts, introducing us to many Potter stalwarts. This includes kindly headmaster Dumbledore (Richard Harris, later played by Michael Gambon), dark arts professor Severus Snape (Alan Rickman), Minerva McGonagall (Maggie Smith) and more.
Revisit Harry's fledgling battle with the evil Voldemort (eventually portrayed by Ralph Fiennes) and remind yourself of where it all began. The movie screens in both widescreen and 4DX, the latter allowing you to physically feel the danger of the Quidditch matches as moving seats, scents and wind effects immerse you in the Hogwarts atmosphere.
