CineConcerts is partnering with Warner Brothers Consumer Products to launch a series of “Harry Potter” film concert tours, Variety has learned exclusively.
Beginning with a “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” tour in 2016, “The Harry Potter Film Concert Series” will reformat each “Harry Potter” film into an orchestral concert experience that offers audiences a live symphony orchestra performance of the entire score in-sync with the film, which will be simultaneously projected onto a high-definition 40-foot screen.
