"The most cinematically rewarding chapter yet." – Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
Year Seven, part one. The Death Eaters have taken over Hogwarts and the Ministry of Magic is wholly under Lord Voldemort’s control. Harry, Ron, and Hermione leave the school on a quest to destroy Voldemort’s Horcruxes: seven objects imbued with a part of his soul that protect him from death. But internal strife exacerbated by dark forces, romantic tensions, and growing fear threaten to undo the heroic trio and plunge the world into darkness. The penultimate chapter of the Harry Potter film series, Deathly Hallows – Part 1 upends the lives of all its characters and forces them to confront the reality of the world they now live in. It was shot back-to-back with the final installment in the saga and is the first time J. K. Rowling received a producer credit in the series.
In 1997, J. K. Rowling opened a door to a magical world of wizards and witches with the publication of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Twenty years later, the Harry Potter novels turned into a multi-media franchise that includes a theme park, several video games, stage play, and – most beloved of all – an eight-part film series that is the second highest-grossing one of all time. To celebrate this special anniversary, the Gables Cinema transforms into Hogwarts with a four-week retrospective of the Harry Potter films. Whether you’re reliving the wonders of Rowling’s world or discovering it for the first time, join us as we present the epic tale of the Boy Who Lived.
