Spellbound Potter Fans Hit The Pavilion

Bartel-Prichard Square was overflowing for a midnight screening of franchise finale.

A night of witchcraft and wizardry transformed the urban landscape last night for a few magical hours.

Hundreds of moviegoers gathered at theaters around Brooklyn—from Court Street to Bartel-Prichard Square—for the much-anticipated opening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part II, the last of the hugely commercially successful fantasy series by J.K. Rowling.

Decked-out diehards, as well as the more casual fans, their friends and family, camped out on the ground in front of Park Slope's Pavilion movie theater, or waited patiently in line to watch the last third of the nearly thousand-page novel played out on the big screen.

Many turned up in signature attire—glasses, burgundy and yellow tie, scarf, or hat, Gryffindor emblem and the occasional robe. Fans were pulsing with excitement, but sad that this would be the final film in the franchise of fantasy films.

From the looks of it, the evening was off to an enchanting start.

If I'd known this would be at the Pavilion, I would have been there too! I really like many of the values displayed by the Harry Potter character. And the movies themselves are always both fun and fascinating. Jo Grossman
