Sqqquuueeee! That’s the sound of Harry Potter fans around the world squealing in delight over the return of everyone’s favorite wizard. But is it really the beginning of the end? I have a feeling someone will figure out how to keep the franchise going one way or another. Part 1 begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione (Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson) embark on a perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction — the Horcruxes. Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord (Ralph Fiennes). The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. The one prize they seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. But as Harry searches for clues to the Horcruxes, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale — the legend of the Deathly Hallows. If true, the legend could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks. Offered in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D.
