Cheap Seats is showing “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” this week and quite frankly, you should not miss it.

The latest “HP” movie features an abundance of amazing cinematography that sheds light on its heightened themes of faith, love and family.

If you are a “Potter” fan, you know the story has shifted from the safety of Hogwarts to the dangers of what lies beyond its stone walls.

Though, if you have yet to see the movie, get ready for the darkest “Harry Potter” movie to date, which includes the three main characters traveling together from hideout to hideout in attempts to escape the hands of Lord Voldemort.

And Voldemort, the story’s antagonist, proves how strong he really is now that Dumbledore is not around to protect Harry, and subsequently, the world from this “Dark Lord.”

The movie has everything a good movie usually contains: a love story, haunting violence, and one awesome soundtrack.

There is also something to say about the acting performance in the seventh “HP” movie, especially for Daniel Radcliffe. I would say he carries the weight of his epic scar better than he has in the previous movies.

But regardless of whose performance is the best, the real reason to go see it is because we are the movie’s original audience.

Without us, the movies would not have been born and they definitely would not have been so magical.

So is “HP7” worth your dollar? Of course it is. Search in your couch or under the floor mats in your car for four quarters and go see it. Get there early, though, for I am sure it will be packed.

“Harry and and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” is playing in Combs 139 for $1 on Friday at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., Saturday at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m.
