Hundreds of costume-clad fans from all over the area sipped energy drinks to stay awake as they anticipated the midnight debut of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2.
Many came bearing tissues – sad to know that this will be the last film in the series – and others were riding high on being part of such a momentous occasion.
The midnight showing was sold out well in advance of July 15 but tickets for the 3 a.m. show were still on sale as fans began to filter into their seats for the opening.
