Harry Potter Film & Cultural Festival

For 13 days, Row House Cinema and Bierport will immerse you in all things Harry Potter! Both Row House and the Bierport taproom will be decorated to put you in a wizarding mood; plus, there’ll be all sorts of HP themed food and drink for kids AND grown-ups at the concession stand. Of course we’ll be showing all 8 films and hosting a slew of fun events, but this year we’ve even teamed up with other local businesses for the first ever Wizard Weekend, with vendors, classes, and activities galore!
