Colorado Cinema Salon: Wild About Harry
90 Minute Running Time
Thursday, July 28th at 7pm at the Denver FilmCenter
Digital presentation - With the final movie of the Harry Potter series now in theaters, it's time for a look back at a truly compelling literary and cinematic phenomenon. You may not know a Muggle from a muffin, but you surely know that Pottermania has been an inescapable part of global pop-culture for more than a decade. This month’s edition of the Colorado Cinema Salon will examine the Potter phenomenon from a variety of vantage points as we try to pinpoint the reasons behind this resurgence of wizardry and wonder on both the page and the big screen. Denver Post film critic Lisa Kennedy, Potter enthusiast Mary Dawson Rassenfoss (who has grown up with the Potter books and movies), and head Tattered Cover book buyer Cathy Langer join curator and host Robert Denerstein for an entertaining look into how author J.K. Rowling and a variety of big-screen directors made so much Potter magic.
