Hundreds of fans.
Ten years, eight films.
It all came down to one night as area residents flocked to Collegeville's Movie Tavern for the midnight showing of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2," the final film outing for the monster franchise.
All eight screens in the Tavern were showing the movie in 2-D and 3-D; viewers who wanted to take the film journey from the beginning showed up for Potterwatch, which kicked off at 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
Staffers donned ties and round glasses like the eponymous hero, but one server really got into the spirit with a head-to-toe Voldemort costume.
Fans—some in Potter gear themselves—filed in lines that stretched through the theater lobby, out the door and onto the sidewalk as they waited for the clock hands to inch near 12.
