Harry Potter Week

Harkins has BIG plans for Harry Potter!

Complete Potter series headlines four days of celebrations leading into the final chapter for Harry and friends

Harkins Theatres is THE place for Harry Potter fans who have been anxiously awaiting the final installment of this world-wide phenomenon!  It all begins with an unprecedented four day long marathon Monday, July 11 through Thursday, July 14 leading into the very last Harry Potter film ever, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. 

Please note that the 12:01 am premiere or the 3:00 am showing of Harry Potter are Thursday night showings (not Friday night). Although this is technically Friday, your ticket will show the business date of Thursday and it will note “Shows after midnight are on the night of the business day/date shown above”.


lining up for the potter finale

Thursday, July 14

Time to Get in Line

If only it were that simple!  The malls and properties where our theatres are located do not allow overnight camping due to the increased liability and safety concerns.  The earliest time which they will allow people to arrive varies from property to property; however, no centers will allow anyone to line up earlier than 6AM. 

Once the building is open, we will start letting in the "Pre-Line" and dividing everyone up into their specific line.  Keep in mind that space in our lobbies is limited and as soon as we reach capacity inside, the rest of the line will continue outside (that's where Be Prepared for the Heat comes in - see below).

Many theatres will have multiple lines formed inside and outside for our various Potter events (as listed below):  Please keep in mind that we are allocating indoor space for each Potter event line.  That means that you will be asked to wait outside when your event line is full inside.  Be warned, that although it may look like there is space inside, that space may be allocated for one of the other Potter events.  Note: ticket holders are not required to arrive this early; however, some guests do arrive early for the experience and to try to secure better seating options.

Potter Event Lines (vary by location)

    * Harry Potter Week Package Priority Seating (guests with Harry Potter Week lanyards will be
      admitted before everyone else. Priority seating ends at 7:30PM. For better seating options, we
      encourage you to arrive early too)
    * Double Dose (part 1 2D & part  2 3D)
    * Cine Capri Double Dose 
    * 12:01 AM Midnight Premiere in 2D
    * 12:01 AM Midnight Premiere in 3D

For those of you lucky Muggles that get a space inside, please note that you cannot bring in outside food or drink (except water). But you do get air conditioning, easy access to the concession stand and restrooms!

Be Prepared for the Heat (especially in Phoenix, Tucson, Yuma, Oklahoma City and Southlake)

If you plan to arrive early on Thursday to wait in line, please remember -  it's going to be HOT outside so please plan ahead.  A safe and fun environment is encouraged for those waiting in line at all Harkins locations. Staying hydrated and cool should be priorities for all attendees.  The more you prepare, the more comfortable you'll be for the finale of the Harry Potter saga. Plan for your day of fun by bringing the following if you are going to wait in line outside at any Harkins location on Thursday:

    * Bottled Water - Drink LOTS of water
    * Sunscreen
    * Hats, sunglasses and umbrellas for additional shade
    * A beach chair to keep elevated off the ground

Due to space limitations we may ask you to remove some items to allow more people to join the line.  And any items you bring to stay cool and comfortable during the day must be returned to your vehicle prior to entering the theatre.   Items may not be held or stored inside the theatre.

We will have water stations available and will do our best to provide as much shade as possible, but it will be hot out.  Reminder: ticket holders are not required to arrive this early; however, some guests do arrive early for the experience and to try to secure better seating options. 

Be Prepared for a Long Wait

For those of you that will be waiting hours, you may want to bring some electronics, books, etc.  Please note that all devices must be at a low volume as not to disrupt our matinee movie-goers inside the theatres.  Additionally, we will not have electrical outlets available - so bring your electronics charged with backup batteries.  We do not provide WIFI, but depending on the property and the proximity, you may be able to pick up a free mall WIFI.

Holding Line Space & Seats for Late Arrivals

In order for everyone to have a great experience, we must insist that one person does not hold space in line for more than two companions.  This same rule applies to holding seats once you're in the auditorium.  Of course if you need to rotate breaks while waiting in line, we understand that!  Tell all your friends to arrive at the same time - why should you wait longer for them? Right?

Social Media

We are going to be live tweeting and posting on Facebook.  Be sure to let our camera crews know if you do not want to be photographed.


If you're planning on socializing and celebrating with your fellow Muggles and Wizards, Harkins Theatres is THE place to be.  For our very special Harry Potter Week theatres (Scottsdale 101, Arrowhead, Tucson Spectrum, Chino Hills, Northfield, Bricktown and Southlake) we are planning some pretty awesome prizes for trivia questions and costumes!  Additionally, our Ultimate Harry Potter Line Up Party at Tempe Marketplace will have hourly giveaways, contests and additional prizes.

Costume Contests: There is not a designated time for costumes to be judged or awarded prizes.  We know that not everyone is going to be able to come and hang out all day. So in attempt to be fair to all Potter fans we will be awarding costume prizes throughout the event and sometimes even at random.  So dress to impress and come have a great time!

General Admission Seating - First Come First Serve

Each event type (Capri, Capri Harry Potter Week Priority Seating, Double Dose, Midnight and Midnight 3D) will seat based on first come first serve.  We will seat the majority of the largest auditoriums first, and then move to the next auditorium and so on, attempting to allow the people that have waited the longest to have the best seat selection.

Please feel free to contact our guest services department with any questions http://www.harkinstheatres.com/contact.aspx.  We look forward to seeing you on Thursday!
