‘Harry Potter’ countdown: Movie marathon madness

July 09, 2009 | 11:17 p.m.

Just six more days — or five if you plan to catch a Tuesday-at-midnight screening — until the premiere of “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” What better way to gear up for the big day than by watching the first five films.

Above is an exclusive teaser clip for ABC Family’s three-day “Harry Potter” marathon, which begins Friday at 7:30 p.m. with “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” and continuing through Sunday night. Between the films, stars Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe will talk up the new film’s romantic antics and more. Here’s the official schedule:

Friday, July 10
7:30 p.m. — “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone”

Saturday, July 11:
12:30 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone”
4 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets”
8 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban”

Sunday, July 12:
12:30 p.m.  — “Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets”
4:30 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban”
7:30 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire”

If you prefer the big-screen theatrical experience, Sherman Oaks’ Arclight Theaters is hosting a marathon of its own Sunday through Tuesday. Average ticket price is $13.50. Pre-order your tickets online. The times are as follows:

Sunday, July 12
1:30 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Sorcerer’s Stone”
4:45 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Chamber of Secrets”

Monday, July 13

10:15 p.m. — “Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire”

Tuesday, July 14

And coming in the next few days, look for our interviews with Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) and Michael Gambon (Albus Dumbledore) and David Heyman, producer of all the Harry Potter films.
