J. K. Rowling’s new Harry Potter spin-off, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” continues at The Harbor Theatre, plus a free screening, with Q&A, of “A Will for the Woods” will play on Tuesday, Dec. 6.
The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for “Muggle”) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” is directed by David Yates (“Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” parts 1 and 2). Starring Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston, Dan Fogler, Alison Sudol, Ezra Miller, Samantha Morton, Jon Voight, Carmen Ejogo, Colin Farrell, and Johnny Depp.
“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” PG-13, 132 minutes, plays at 7 p.m., Thursday-Saturday, Dec. 1-3, and at 2 and 7 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 4.
Determined that his last act will be a gift to the planet, a man prepares for his own green burial. The feature documentary film “A Will for the Woods” tells his story.
