Harry Potter and the spooky gaol!
FANS of the Harry Potter franchise were treated to two very special movie screenings last week as the Prisoner of Azkaban temporarily became the prisoner of Wicklow Gaol!
The Pop-Up Movie Club hosted two sell-out screenings on Saturday and Sunday night, after dark in one of the county’s
– if not the country’s – spookiest buildings.
Nevertheless, fans of all ages flocked to watch the third installment in the series on the big screen, where they enjoyed some popcorn and treats from the tuck shop for the ultimate cinema experience with a twist.
Spells instead of cells were the order of the day – although those little, locked rooms were never far from the fans minds as their seats were lined up just outside the heavy black doors of the prisoner cells.
