House of MinaLima Exhibition Opening to Coincide with “Cursed Child” West End Run
Fans who are set to visit London this summer for the opening of Harry Potter and the Cursed Child will have one more activity to add to their list – visiting House of MinaLima, an exhibition of props and limited-edition prints opening in June!
Entry to House of MinaLima, which will be located at 26 Greek Street in the West End of London and opens June 3, is free and doesn’t require a ticket. Plus, it’s just around the corner from the Palace Theater, meaning fans can easily stop by before taking in a performance of Cursed Child (or perhaps as a break in between Parts I and II!). The location is described as being something right out of Diagon Alley, and MinaLima knew they had found the right place to house their exhibition as soon as they laid eyes on it.
Eduardo describes visiting 26 Greek Street for the first time:
We knew straight away that it was the right place for us. We cancelled all our other viewings and told the landlord we’d take it. It’s like Grimmauld Place in there, with narrow staircases, wonky walls and low ceilings.
We wanted it to feel like it could have been there forever, like a museum. And as though it could disappear between the other buildings. By the time you reach the top floor, you can touch the ceiling. It’s like Harry’s cupboard under the stairs but at the top of the building.
The exhibition will feature famous props, like Harry’s acceptance letter, and limited-edition prints from both Potter and MinaLima’s other graphic design endeavors. Pottermore hints that there *may* even be something from Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them at some point during the exhibition, which will be open until early 2017. Maybe fans will glimpse something closer to the time the film is released?
In any case, this is an excellent opportunity for fans to see some of MinaLima’s gorgeous work up close! Will any of you be making a visit?
