On September 23 and November 4, The Astor Theatre will become the most magical place in Melbourne, as all nine films grace the St Kilda cinema's screens for 20 hours of wizarding wonder. BYO time-turner if you don't think you'll be able to stay awake.

Nine films, you say? Yep, this really is a celebration of every Potter-related flick there is, which means the eight movie versions of J.K. Rowling's original seven books, plus the film adaptation of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them as well. Watch Harry, Hermione, Ron and co. spend their first day at Hogwarts, play quidditch, search for the deathly hallows and battle He Who Must Not Be Named. And, then jump back several decades earlier to explore the exploits behind one of their textbooks — as presented in glorious 70mm, too.

With no new Potter-related films due until the Fantastic Beasts sequel next year, this will help you get your big screen spellbinding fix — and, let's face it, you've already watched your DVDs hundreds of times. Kicking off at 11am and screening through until the following morning, Potterfest — A Harry Potter Marathon will also include plenty of other Potter fun, with dressing up in costume as highly recommended as a pint of butterbeer.
