PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — There is both good news and bad news for Pittsburghers who love the Potterverse.
The good news, Lawrenceville’s Row House Cinema is once again hosting its popular Harry Potter Film and Cultural Festival this year; the bad news, this is the third and final year for all the Potter fun.
The festival will be held from Feb. 22 through March 7, 2019.
Row House Cinema owner Brian Mendelssohn says in a press release: “This is one of our favorite festivals of the year, and we’ve had so much fun helping it grow. This is the festival’s third year, so we’re going to make it the best one ever before we retire it to focus on some new programming.”
The film festival draws about 1,500 attendees over the two weeks its open, and features a number of different events.
This year features old favorites like the 24-hour Potter movie marathon, a four-course wizarding feast at The Vandal, and wizard-themed food and concessions, including Butterbeer, at the theater’s attached bar and bottle shop, Bierport.
New this year will be a closing night game show, and lectures on misunderstood monsters and enchanted books.
There will also be an Owl Night, a Weasley Sweater Day, a Sorting Hat Night and more.
