Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince movie night recap

Thank you to everyone who attended our free screening of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince this afternoon! A great audience of 40 people came to watch the movie. This is the second highest audience turnout we've had since the library's renovation (the Monsters vs. Aliens screening in November currently holds the top spot)! For a two and half hour movie I thought people might start to get restless, but the action really held everyone's attention. I wish I could insert myself into the scene at Professor Slughorn's supper party where Hermione, Harry, and other Hogwarts students are eating ice cream out of glass goblets the size of soup bowls. Yum! I also think the library at Hogwarts is pretty neat: in one scene, as Hermione walks from one set of stacks to another, all she has to do is hold a book up and then it magically floats to its proper place on the shelf. And, of course, you gotta love Ron Weasley. Unlucky with love potions but awesome on the Quidditch pitch!

Have you seen Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince? What did you think?

If you haven't watched the movie yet, or would like to see it again, put yourself on hold for a copy from the library:
