(WICHITA, Kan.) — Die-hard Harry Potter fans brave the heat to be among the first in Wichita to see the final movie in the Harry Potter series. It's 95 degrees out but fans are still donning their Hogwarts sweaters and wizard cloaks - all in the spirit of Harry Potter.
Lines formed Thursday outside the west side Warren Theater. But even after battling the heat and the boredom, fans say tonight will be worth it.
"We've been planning this since May...we're pumped" says Sydney Steele, of Wichita.
Ryan Ehresman, who is a recent convert to the Harry Potter phenomenon was among the fans waiting for the movie to open. "I'm pretty much a new convert to the Harry Potter series so it will be fun because this will be the first movie that I've read the book beforehand so it will be interesting to see what changes they make and everything" Ryan said on Thursday.
