Fans of JK Rowling's wizarding series will feel like they've spent a whole weekend at Hogwarts thanks to a movie marathon coming to Dubai this month.

Reel Cinemas is hosting a Harry Potter film extravaganza, screening all eight films in the fantastical franchise across two days. All together, that adds up to more than 20 hours of on-screen action, so you'll need to accio up plenty of popcorn and soft drinks to see you through.

The marathon will take place on Friday August 23 and Saturday August 24, and fans can visit two Reel Cinema outlets to take part: Dubai Marina Mall or Rove Downtown, a boutique branch located in a hotel.

The marathon offers viewers a chance to escape the steamy summer climes for a weekend, and watch Harry, Ron, Hermione and pals band together to ward off the evil Lord Voldemort.

Day one kicks off at 11am, and will feature Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (with breaks scheduled in between, don't worry).

All together, the quartet of films will keep you in the cinema for around 11-and-a-half hours.

Day two will screen 11 hours of action with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, followed by Part 2.

Tickets for the event cost Dh220 per person for the whole weekend, or Dh110 per day, and tickets needs to be booked separately for the Friday and Saturday sessions.

Unfortunately fans can't send an owl to book their space, but tickets can be ordered online at www.reelcinemas.ae.
