Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone in Concert was due to take place at the Plenary Hall in the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre today and tomorrow.

It was billed as a chance for fans to experience a ‘live’ orchestral screening of the big-screen adaptation of the first of JK Rowling’s popular children’s novels.

The Selangor Symphony Orchestra had been tasked with bringing John Williams’ unforgettable score to life as the movie was screened in high definition and in full on a 40-foot screen.

The show is part of Harry Potter Film Concert Series announced by the CineConcerts and Warner Bros Consumer Products early last year. – Malaymail
