One of the two giant lines that formed outside of the movie theater at the Myrtle Beach Mall last evening.

Update 7/16: The Sun News has a great recap of the fans in line for the midnight showing of the final Harry Potter film. They also have some pretty staggering numbers as to how many tickets were sold at both Broadway and Market Common.

First Report 7/15: Early this morning the Harry Potter movie series came to an end. Millions of people from around the world have grown up with Harry Potter, from the newest tween fans to the 30+ year olds, and fell in love with a little boy that had a lightning bolt scar on his forehead.

I was never the biggest Potter fan, but Claire Bynum of The Sun News is and she has a great write-up, expressing her feelings on Growing up Potter. The Sun News also has some photos of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans Harry Potter Night. Covert of the Minneapolis Star Tribune has a review of the final film up on the Kicks! website

Last night I drove to the theater at the Myrtle Beach Mall to check out the crowd for the final Harry Potter film and shot a short video interview with the one and only Hagrid. Well, it may have not been the real Hagrid. Check out the video below.
