Calling all muggles

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, or a Whomping Willow for that matter, you may have heard that the final installment of the ‘Harry Potter’ film saga opens Thursday night. Well, part one anyway.

Potter fans, dressed in their Hogwarts attire, are lining up Thursday at the Lake Theatre, 1022 Lake St., to see the midnight showing of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1. Though tickets for the midnight showing are likely sold out by the time you read this, you still have all weekend to see the film.

Do something sweet this weekend. See ‘Bee Movie’ and help a local mom

Another reason to see a movie at the Lake this weekend. The Oak Park Women’s Guild is hosting a special showing of “Bee Movie” in honor of former guild board member Kari Harris, a local mom of two, who was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year.

This is a great opportunity to show your children the importance of helping a community member in need, so stop by and see “Bee Movie” at the Lake this Saturday, Nov. 20 at 10 a.m. Proceeds will go directly to Kari for medical costs and child care.
