Some of that old Hogwarts magic is headed to Long Island as “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” will play on a 40-foot screen at Northwell Health at Jones Beach Theater on Aug. 7 while the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra performs the score live to picture.
“The Harry Potter film series is a once-in-a-lifetime cultural phenomenon that continues to delight millions of fans around the world,” said Justin Freer, president of CineConcerts and producer/conductor of the Harry Potter Film Concert Series. “It is with great pleasure that we bring fans for the first time ever an opportunity to experience the award-winning music scores played live by a symphony orchestra, all while the beloved film is simultaneously projected onto the big screen. This is truly an unforgettable event.”
The 2001 film, starring Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson, was a massive global hit grossing more than $1 billion and spawning seven sequels.
