Pop Up Screens to host outdoor “Deathly Hallows – Part 2” screening in London

Now this sounds like a fun event for Potter fans!

We’ve just received word that Pop Up Screens, an organization that hosts outdoor film screenings in London parks, will be screening Deathly Hallows – Part 2 at Coram’s Fields, Holborn, on August 18. Tickets are £10 and can be purchased here.

It really sounds like an awesome evening! There will be a fully stocked bar as well as popcorn and snacks available. Pop Up Screens David Leydon founder certainly makes it sound idyllic:

If you’ve never been to an outdoor cinema, you should; it’s a must try. I know it sounds like a bit of a sales pitch, but it really is the best way to watch a movie, as you’re in a park with your friends and hundreds of other people [who] love that movie as much as you do. And that real love for the movie creates a special atmosphere you won’t find at any multiplex.

Anyone think they’ll make it to this event? Be sure to let us know what you think of it! You can check out other films Pop Up Screens will be featuring this summer in the press release below.

Throughout the summer, the super size screen will visit some of the capitals best-loved parks, including Morden, Fulham, Blackheath, Hammersmith, Holborn and Greenwich, with screenings kicking off around 8.30pm. Tickets can be purchased in advance at www.popupscreens.co.uk for £10, or a weekender pass to see all three films at any one location will set you back £24, with a bumper Season Ticket available for only £75- that’s all 33 films for a little over £2 a movie.

It goes without saying there’ll also be a fully stocked bar and it just wouldn’t be cinema without popcorn (http://www.drumandkernelpopcorn.co.uk/) and sweets.

I've been making magic at MuggleNet since 2012, when I first joined the staff as a News intern. I've never wavered from the declaration in my childhood journal, circa October 2000: "I LOVE Harry Potter! If I clean my room, my mom says she'll make me a dinner a wizard would love!" Proud Gryffindor; don't hate.
