Three movie theaters in Leicester Square will show the film Thursday, according to the AFP. The red carpet, which will feature a mock-up of Diagon Alley, will run between the two squares.
Devotees, some dressed as characters from the film, have been sleeping on the streets since Tuesday, enduring intermittent rain. “It's horrible! It's been the worst night of my life!” Beryl Sage, 18, told the BBC of her tentless woes.
“I'm really excited and this is fun because I've never done this before but I'm also kind of mad at the rain right now because we're all soaked,” a young female fan told the AP.
“Deathly Hallows — Part 2,” the final fim in the series, opens to the rest of the muggles July 15.
