The BBC is reporting that the British Film Institute in London will be hosting all night Harry Potter marathons at their IMAX cinema in preparation for "Deathly Hallows: Part 2."

The seven already released films will be split over two nights for the 20-hour marathon all-nighters on 17/18 and 24/25 June.

Fans are also invited to dress up in wizarding costumes for the occasion.

"We can't wait to welcome the biggest and bravest Harry Potter fans in the country," said Justin Johnson, head of operations at BFI Imax. "If they see every film they'll spend almost 20 hours in the company of all their favourite characters!
Complete dates and times are listed below:

Harry Potter 1-4 (at the BFI IMAX)
17 June, 10:00 p.m.
24 June, 10:00 p.m.

Harry Potter 5-7 (at the BFI IMAX)

18 June, 11:45 p.m.
25 June, 11:45 p.m.

Tickets can be booked through the BFI website. Good luck to those who take up the challenge!

I would love to do this but I can’t. It would be amazing if there was a huge IMAX near me that could do this…

Why isnt any U.S. theaters doing this!?!? At least with part 1 they should be showing both DH movies back to back. I need to start looking into tickets, see what I can find out.

In Finland, Finnkino is doing in select cities what they call “Tylypahkan laaja oppimäärä”, or “Extensive Syllabus of Hogwarts” (probably a crappy translation, I don’t know the correct terms in English), a week of HP movies leading up to Deathly Hallows II. They’re showing one movie every night, from the 4th July until 10th July, then have a break for a couple of days and then the premiere of DH II on the 13th, at 0:07 o’clock.
