It has been 16 long years
in Azkaban since Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets was first seen on the big screen, but HP fans in Calgary will get another chance to watch the magical movie in a theatre setting this upcoming February.
Harry, Hermione, Ron, Dobby the house elf, and the famous, dreamy wizard-celebrity-turned Defense Against The Dark Arts Instructor Gilderoy Lockhart will be seen on the screen at the Southern Alberta Jubilee Theatre for two shows this winter, accompanied by a full orchestra that will bring the iconic soundtrack to life.
Following all the shenanigans from his first year — narrowly escaping a gigantic three-headed dog, narrowly escaping a literal dark lord, narrowly escaping a most painful death on the third-floor corridor, and, most importantly, winning that house cup all thanks to Neville “The Man” Longbottom — Harry and the gang are back at it again to face yet another gigantic monster and yet another iteration of that dastardly dark lord.
Throw in a possessed girl writing messages in blood, a flying car, people getting petrified left and right, and a really grumpy tree, and you’ve got the makings of another fun year at Hogwarts for our 12-year-old heroes.
The Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra will be on scene for the shows to provide the soundtrack, bringing John’ Williams’ score to life in real time with the movie.
Calgarians will have two chances to attend the screening/performance, with the first landing on Thursday, February 28 and the second on Friday, March 1.
Tickets to the shows are currently available at the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra’s website starting at 43 galleons (or “dollars”) each, and both the Friday and the Saturday shows starts at 7:30 pm.
When: Friday, February 28 and Saturday, March 1, 2019
Time: 7:30 pm
Where: Southern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium — 1415 14th Avenue NW
Tickets: Start at $43, available online
