Prague’s Kino Lucerna to Screen Harry Potter Marathon

Prague’s Kino Lucerna to Screen Harry Potter Marathon

Harry Potter turns 20 this year - J.K. Rowling’s first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (Sorcerer’s Stone stateside), was released in 1997 - and one central Prague cinema is planning a two-day marathon to celebrate the big birthday early next month.

Kino Lucerna will be screening all eight Harry Potter films over a long weekend at the cinema from September 9-10, and tickets are already on sale at the cinema’s website.

On Saturday morning, the festivities kick off with a brisk 9:30 morning screening of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, followed by Chamber of Secrets, Prisoner of Azkaban, and Goblet of Fire finishing up by 21:30. There’s a half-hour break in-between each movie.

Sunday unfolds in the same manner, beginning with Order of the Phoenix at 9:30 followed by Half-Blood Prince and Deathly Hallows 1 & 2 wrapping up by 20:30.

The two-day Potter marathon will run you 600 crowns for all eight films. More info can be found at the Kino Lucerna official website or Facebook event page.

How do you rate the Harry Potter films? I’ve only seen each film once upon initial release, but I always dug sixth entry Half-Blood Prince above the others because it focused more on the characters and the budding relationships during their teenage years.

Here’s how I'd rank them:

  1. Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince
  2. Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
  3. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2
  4. Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone
  5. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
  6. Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire
  7. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1
  8. Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
