Movie Matinee @ Adams Shore: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Thursday, March 16th at 1:30 p.m.
Rated PG - Run time: 142 minutes
A dangerous criminal, Sirius Black, has escaped from Azkaban Prison after 12 years of incarceration and some of those close to Harry Potter believe Black might be after him. Of course, a loose serial killer is only one of the problems plaguing Harry's third year back at school - Dementors, the soul-sucking guards of Azkaban, have been set to guard the school too! With the help of his friends, Ron and Hermione, and new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor Remus Lupin, Harry struggles to thwart the Dementors, find Sirius Black, and uncover the mysteries of the night that left Harry orphaned.
