This Halloween season, the Harry Potter franchise is apparating back into movie theaters for a limited time only. As Variety reports, IMAX and Warner Bros. have joined forces to screen all eight films in 2D for one week, beginning on Thursday, October 13.

The Harry Potter marathon is designed to promote the forthcoming film Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, an adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s 2001 book of the same name that’s slated for a November 18 release. It also marks the first time that Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets have been shown in IMAX theaters.

Making the occasion even more festive, Warner Bros will host a free Global Fan Event on October 13th to celebrate Fantastic Beasts. Viewers in select cities around the world will be shown a sneak peek of the upcoming movie, and London and Los Angeles audiences will be treated to in-person actor appearances and a Q&A session.
