Harry Potter and crew's adventures are coming to a close with the release of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows Part 2 this weekend.  It's hard to think of a world without Harry Potter movies.  Over the past 10 or so years Potter has inched into almost every facet of our culture.

 

Last night the Gallatin Valley Cinemas was home to the Bozeman release and one thing is clear.  People love the Potter.  Every single screen in the movie plex was showing the film in either 3d or 2d and every single seat was bought and paid for before the doors even opened.  1300 in total.

 

Every character from the film was represented in costume last night from Harry to Voldemort.

 

 

Chadwick and Ashley showed up around 10pm to enjoy the party, play some music and hand out some delicious Rosauers donuts, hot chocolate and Dr. Pepper from Lehrkinds.

The crowd was all in good spirits until some rednecks (so they seemed to me) drove through a puddle splashing some of those waiting in line.  Some speeding cars drove irresponsibly fast through the parking lot but luckily no one was hurt and all made it into the theater for a good show.

 

The KISS crew were not part of the lucky 1300 to see the show but from what we've heard from those who did go, it sounds amazing.  I'm looking forward to seeing it and putting a bookend at the end of the Harry Potter era.

Were you at the premier?  What were your thoughts on the whole night?
