Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - Summer Film Fest August 10, 7:00 pm

HARRY POTTER AND THE SORCERER’S STONE

In this adaptation of the first of J.K. Rowling's popular children's novels about Harry Potter, a boy learns on his eleventh birthday that he is the orphaned son of two powerful wizards and possesses unique magical powers of his own. He is summoned from his life as an unwanted child to become a student at Hogwarts, an English boarding school for wizards. There, he meets several friends who become his closest allies and help him discover the truth about his parents' mysterious deaths.

Directed by Chris Columbus. 2001. Rated PG. 2h 32m.

BANNING THE BOOK
In some parts of the United States and United Kingdom, the Harry Potter books have been banned from being read in school, taken out of libraries, and even burned in public. The most frequent objections to Harry Potter fall into three categories: witchcraft/religious reasons; they set bad examples for children; and they're too dark.
