Mad about Potter

THE final adventure of Harry Potter has been a box office saviour for Sovereign Cinema as it heads into the toughest month of the year.

Owner/operator Laurence Duggan said August was traditionally a “really bad time for cinemas” because the big movies from America were made to coincide with their major school holiday in June/July and motion picture companies “virtually went into shutdown in the month after”.

He said Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 had been excellent for business, giving the cinema a chance to ride through the tough times expected ahead.

“It’s been an awesome little movie. We’ve sold 1235 tickets in the five days since it’s been showing.”

Harry Potter Mega Marathon will screen all eight movies in 23 hours straight from 10pm this Saturday at Sovereign.
