(7PM-11PM ET/PT) HARRY POTTER AND THE CHAMBER OF SECRETS
After a long summer with the horrid Dursleys, Harry Potter is thwarted in his attempts to board the train to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry to begin his second year. Harry’s only transportation option is a magical flying car, but unfortunately it crashes into a valuable (and clearly vexed) Whomping Willow. Still, all this seems like a day in the park compared to what awaits Harry that fall within the haunted halls of Hogwarts. Chilling, malevolent voices whisper from the walls only to Harry and it seems certain that his classmate Draco Malfoy (Tom Felton) is out to get him. Soon it’s not just Harry who is worried about survival, as dreadful things begin to happen at the school. The mysteriously gleaming foot-high words on the wall proclaim: “The Chamber of Secrets Has Been Opened. Enemies of the Heir, Beware.” But what exactly does it all mean? Harry, Hermione (Emma Watson) and Ron (Rupert Grint) risk their own lives to solve this 50-year-old, potentially deadly mystery. “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets” repeats on Wednesday, October 15th at 4pm ET/PT.

The minister of magic believes that Headmaster Dumbledore (Michael Gambon) is lying and assigns a member of his staff, Dolores Umbridge (Imelda Staunton), to be the new Defense Against the Dark Arts teacher. When her Ministry-approved course leaves the young wizards woefully unprepared to protect themselves against the dark forces threatening them, Hermione and Ron urge Harry to take charge. Meeting secretly with a small group of students who name themselves “Dumbledore’s Army,” Harry teaches them how to defend themselves against the Dark Arts and prepares the courageous young wizards for the extraordinary battle that lies ahead. “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” repeats on Friday, October 17th at 4:30pm ET/PT.

Dumbledore, racing to prepare Harry for a battle that he knows is fast approaching, brings him on a perilous mission to find the key to unlock Voldemort’s defenses. Meanwhile, the students face a different adversary as teenage hormones rage: Harry’s friendship with Ginny Weasley (Bonnie Wright) grows into something deeper; Lavender Brown (Jessie Cave) lavishes her affections on Ron while Hermione simmers with jealousy; and a box of love potion-laced chocolates ends up in the wrong hands. “Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince” repeats on Saturday, October 18th at 12pm ET/PT.

In the first part of the seventh and final adventure, Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort’s immortality and destruction — the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart. Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort’s Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorizing and arresting anyone who might oppose them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort: Harry Potter. The Chosen One has become the hunted one as the Death Eaters search for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort…alive. Harry’s only hope is to find the Horcruxes before Voldemort finds him. But as he searches for clues, he uncovers an old and almost forgotten tale — the legend of the Deathly Hallows. And if the legend turns out to be true, it could give Voldemort the ultimate power he seeks. Little does Harry know that his future has already been decided by his past when, on that fateful day, he became “the Boy Who Lived.” No longer just a boy, Harry Potter is drawing ever closer to the task for which he has been preparing since the day he first stepped into Hogwarts: the ultimate battle with Voldemort.
