UTEP’s Friday Night Flick movie series continues this Friday, March 3, with a low-priced screening of the 2016 Harry Potter film series spinoff, Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

Winner of Best Achievement in Costume Design at the recent Academy Awards, Fantastic Beasts stars Eddie Redmayne as writer Newt Scamander in New York's secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school, according to the movie description on the film’s official website. The movie is rated PG-13.
