June 16, 2015 – PARIS, France – Harry Potter™: The Exhibition, which opened just two months ago at LA CITÉ DU CINÉMA in Saint Denis is the must see exhibition of the season with over 200,000 visitors so far. The exhibition is open through September 6, 2015.

The more than 2,000 square meters exhibition offers French Harry Potter fans an immersive look into the famous wizarding world.

In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Global Experience Specialists, Inc. (GES) produced and created the interactive traveling exhibition, where visitors are able to enjoy dramatic displays inspired by the Hogwarts™ film sets and see the amazing craftsmanship behind authentic costumes, props and creatures from the films. LA CITÉ DU CINÉMA in Saint-Denis will be the exhibition’s third stop in Europe following the adventure museum Odysseum in Cologne, Germany and in Norrköping, Sweden, at Nya Parken. Since its highly successful premiere at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago in 2009, the exhibition has been presented in a variety of major cultural and entertainment institutions and museums in cities around the world including Boston, Toronto, Seattle, New York, Sydney, Singapore and Tokyo, and has been seen by more than 3 million visitors worldwide.

Harry Potter: The Exhibition has delighted audiences all over the world and we are thrilled by the response it has received in France,” said GES President, Steve Moster. “Guests love this truly immersive experience. We look forward to many more fans in France experiencing the world of Harry Potter first hand during its tour at LA CITÉ DU CINÉMA in Saint-Denis through September 6.”
