Harry Potter Premiere Party at the Aurora Theatre

EAST AURORA, NY- With the much anticipated final installment of the Harry Potter films to be released in just a few shorts days, The Aurora Theatre is making it a “magical” celebration.  Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 will premiere on Friday July 15th at 12:01 am but much will happen before that.

The theatre will be showing Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 on Wednesday July 13th at 10:30 pm, so avid Harry fans can build the momentum and see the first part on the big screen.  And then, on Thursday July 14th beginning at 9:30 pm, fans are invited to a “Potter Pre-Party.”  From butter beer to trivia tests, the Potter faithfuls will enjoy a fun night featuring all that the Hogwarts has had to offer.  There will be magic and wizardry from 10-11 pm performed by magician Todd Nelson and those who dress in costume may magically receive a prize!  The party will then be completed at 12:01 with the premiere showing of the film.

The new owners of the Aurora Theatre have been working to enhance the “moving going” experience.  They have most recently added music in the lobby and play “movie music” through Cinemagic.  They are also working to have special events related to the premiere films such as their recent relationship working with Holland International Speedway in giving patrons discounts and free passes to the Speedway and having several race cars and drivers at the theatre in conjunction with the showing of CARS 2.

“We really want The Aurora to be movies and much more,” states Lynn Kinsella, owner of The Aurora Theatre.  “Movies offer such great tie-ins for promotional events and make it fun for people to come to The Aurora.  As one of the largest and oldest single screen theatres in WNY we want to highlight what our theatre and East Aurora has to offer.”

Plans are already in the works for customer loyalty programs, birthday events and a very special holiday event.  The Aurora Theatre is home to the Aurora Arts Films Society the first Wednesday of each month and this summer is having the Fisher-Price Summer Family Films series that gives families a free film every Wednesday morning.

The “Potter Party” events will begin Wednesday July 13th with the showing of Part 1.  Tickets will be available at the door.  Tickets for the premiere of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and the “Potter Pre-Party” are $8 can be purchased in advance at The Aurora Theatre, Fowlers Chocolates and The Roycroft Inn.  For more information, call The Aurora Theatre at 652-1660 or go to www.theauroratheatre.com.
