Get those wands ready! The wizarding world of Harry Potter is coming to Ijams Nature Center, Friday, June 24, as part of Movies Under the Stars presented by Ijams and Central Cinema. Come dressed in house colors, and don’t forget a lawn chair or blanket for the movie that started it all: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone.


Doors open at 7 p.m., and movies begin at dark (usually around 9 p.m.). Food trucks and the beer garden will have tasty meals, snacks and beverages for purchase. No coolers and no outside alcohol allowed. Dogs are allowed, but must be on leash at all times.

These events are on the Ijams Visitor Center lawn. In case of inclement weather, the event will move to the Ijams Homesite under the tent. Tickets are $10 per person or $36 for a family four-pack. Space is limited per screening. Purchasing tickets ahead of time is highly recommended. Walk-up tickets may not be available.

Ijams is located at 2915 Island Home Avenue. For more information or to purchase tickets go here or call 865-577-4717.
