The Museum of Science and Industry plays host to the newest Harry Potter™ film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince™, at the Omnimax theater in IMAX.

In this sixth film, He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named (Voldemort) is tightening his grip on both the Muggle and wizarding worlds, and Hogwarts is no longer the safe haven it once was. Harry suspects that dangers may even lie within the castle, but Dumbledore is more intent upon preparing him for the final battle that he knows is fast approaching. Meanwhile, the students are under attack from a very different adversary as teenage hormones rage across the ramparts. Love is in the air, but tragedy lies ahead, and Hogwarts may never be the same again.

Multiple shows daily. Make it a Harry Potter day and purchase tickets for the film and the exhibit!
