LONG BEACH - During the week of April 2 through April 6, the Boys and Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula, with the generous support of the Neptune Theater, is offering a four-day "Harry Potter Spring Break Movie Extravaganza." On each of the four days, theater doors will open at noon. Entrance will be by donation to the Boys and Girls Club of the Long Beach Peninsula. There will be no tickets sold. Concession food items will be available at regular prices. One hundred percent of the donations will go towards our new Boys and Girls Club effort.
Before the movie starts there will be trivia and costume contests and other fun activities for Harry Potter fans of all ages. Earl Wheaton, board member of our local Boys and Girls Club organization, will be hosting the event each day. He has promised a variety of sought after prizes for the "muggles" attending, including books, fun props and a special grand prize. The prizes have been donated by Earl Wheaton, a long-time J K Rowling fan himself, and by Time Enough Books at the Port of Ilwaco.
The schedule for the movie extravaganza is:
Monday, April 2: "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone"
Tuesday, April 3: "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets"
Thursday, April 5: "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkeban"
Friday, April 6: "Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire"
The community is encouraged to take advantage of this special event during spring break and get in the Harry Potter spirit. The theater does have capacity limits, so you may want to get there a bit early. If you cannot attend and want to support our local Boys and Girls Club effort, donations can be made directly at either the Long Beach or Ocean Park Branch of Great NorthWest Federal Credit Union or via mail to P.O. Box 1172, Long Beach, WA 98631. If you have questions about the Boys and Girls Club or want to explore volunteer opportunities, call DeEtta Lorente at 642-3577.
