Platform 9¾ will be a little closer to home this weekend.

Englewood Cinema will show all eight Harry Potter movies over the course of a week beginning Friday, the theater announced on its Facebook page. Some of the films will show on more than one night and tickets are $3 per film.

The marathon comes as movie theaters begin to reopen after theaters closed in the wake of stay-at-home orders and production of many blockbuster movies was delayed. In addition to the marathon, the theater is also offering deals on concessions.
