For Harry Potter Devotees

The Nitehawk Cinema is celebrating the 20th anniversary of J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. From January 7 to March 26, the theater will screen every one of the Potter films. In addition, the theater will host a special "Books vs. Film" debate at The Strand bookstore on January 12, with local HP authorities arguing the superiority of their preferred medium.
