PALMDALE – The City of Palmdale’s popular “Family Movie Night” continues this Friday, Aug. 15 with a special concert performance by the West Coast Classical Orchestra before the feature film Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone.

In Harry Potter & The Sorcerer’s Stone, a three-time Oscar nominated film adaptation of J.K. Rowling’s bestseller, Harry Potter learns on his 11th birthday that he is the orphaned first son of two powerful wizards and possesses magical powers of his own. At Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Harry embarks on the adventure of a lifetime. He learns the high-flying sport Quidditch and plays a thrilling game with living chess pieces on his way to face a Dark Wizard bent on destroying him.
The final movie in the series will be Finding Nemo, on Friday, Aug. 22.
Finding Nemo features Nemo, an adventurous young clownfish, who is unexpectedly taken from his Great Barrier Reef home to a dentist’s office aquarium. It’s up to his worrisome father Marlin and his friendly but forgetful regal blue tang fish Dory to bring Nemo home — meeting vegetarian sharks, surfer dude turtles, hypnotic jellyfish, hungry seagulls, and more along the way.
