Do you know a Birmingham wizard? It’s time to conjure up some spells and discover the enchanting world of Harry Potter during Wizards, Whiskey and Wine—a 21+ event—at McWane Science Center. The magic appears Saturday, October 26 from 5:30-11:30PM. Tickets available now.
1. Wizardry is Always Cool
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter first took the world by storm way back in 1997 if you read the books and in 2001 if you watched the movies. Can you believe it’s been over 20 years since we first met young Harry Potter?
If there’s one thing to know about this magical world, it’s this—it’s always cool.
Getting the chance to experience it at McWane Science Center makes it even cooler. So get lost in potions, spells and more during the event and geek out with others who love Harry Potter as much as you do.
2. Dinner and Drinks Will be Served
An event isn’t complete without some grub. So expect dinner and other Harry Potter-themed eats while at McWane Science Center.
Okay, so there may not be any owls dropping letters at your seat, but there will be plenty of tasty things to eat. Hey, you never know. Maybe you’ll be surprised with some chocolate frogs. They’re magical, you know.
Along with dinner, your ticket to Wizards, Whiskey and Wine includes two drink tickets. So be sure to score yourself something tasty to sip on.
ID’s will be checked upon arrival to this 21+ only event.
3. You Can Watch Harry Potter on the IMAX Dome Screen
Bigger is better right? When it comes to movie screens—totally!
Your ticket to Wizards, Whiskey and Wine scores you a pass to McWane Science Center’s IMAX Dome for a special screening of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
Concession stands will be open during the event, so be sure to grab some salty/sweet snacks and beverages on your way in.
The show begins at 7:15PM. Just be sure to silence your wands.
