How fantastic! We were there in May and I loved every minute of it. That would be a perfect way to finish the midnight show. Good on Universal for doing something so great for the fans.

What Fun! Our theatre sold out all 13 auditoriums 2 weeks ago- so I was so glad to have been there! All midnight releases over the past decade. :) Whoot!

Bravo Universal that was so nice. And Hogsmeade looked so beautiful with the moon out. It must have been class craic and a perfect magical way to end the night. Hope there was butterbeer
