Fox Theatre film festival to include showing of entire Harry Potter series 

Fox Theatre’s annual Coca-Cola Summer Film Festival will cater to Harry Potter fans this year. 

The festival includes showings of all eight Harry Potter movies, in addition to other family-friendly classics. 

Pay homage to the theater’s 1928 opening on July 16 with a showing of “The Legend Lives On: Atlanta’s Fox Theatre” and “Steamboat Willie.” The latter film was shown to a sold-out crowd during the theater’s grand opening. The celebratory screenings is free, but requires an RSVP.

Other screenings include “Casablanca,” to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the film’s release, and sing-a-longs to “Mary Poppins” and “Beauty & the Beast” (the 1991 version that inspired the 2017 live-action film).

Individual tickets are $8 before July 1, when they will increase to $10. Tickets will be $12 on the day of the screening. Admission to the Saturday A.M. Cartoons will be $5. Sing-a-long screenings are $15 in advance and $20 at the door. A pass to view all eight of the Harry Potter films is $76.
