You won’t want to miss this epic magical movie marathon. Here’s why...

1. Quidditch, quidditch, quidditch

Bludgers flying, high speed sprints for the snitch, Krum, generally: err, yeah you better believe Quidditch matches are unparalleled at their full, vertigo-inducing size.

2. Doo-doo-doo-doo-dooo-do-dooooo-dooooo

We guarantee hearing Hedwig’s Theme twinkling out at cinema volume will make you feel like you’ve just had a swig of Felix Felicis. That John Williams, eh? He really knows what he’s doing.

3. Hogwarts, Hogwarts, Hogwarts!

Do you remember the first time you saw Hogwarts looming up at you as the boats round the bend in the river in Philosopher’s Stone? One of the most breath-taking moments in a franchise full of them.

4. Magic just looks more... magical?

A broomstick zooming through the grounds of Hogwarts of its own accord as Harry shouts “accio broom!” is just way more impressive if the screen you’re watching it on has ample real estate; likewise the effects of Polyjuice Potion (particularly when they go wrong), slipping into the Pensieve, flying cars and every single magical duel. Unfortunately, the giant spiders also get bigger.

5. It’s kind of like hanging out with old friends

Particularly if your friends are half giant, able to turn into a large black dog, or wise old men with long beards. And that’s something we haven’t really been able to do properly for a while.
