IMPORTANT UPDATE: LOCATION CHANGE:
I was able to get our venue switched to a larger space. We will now have this event at WeWork 135 Madison Avenue 5th Floor.

This means I can now open up to additional RSVPs. PLEASE. It is VERY VERY IMPORTANT that you are accurate for your RSVP. If you say yes, but cannot attend, you are preventing someone else from attending.

What is Wizard People Dear Reader? It is (IMO) one of the funniest Harry Potter parodies ever made.

Created by Brad Neely, he created an alternative audio track to play during Sorcerer's Stone, and it is hysterical. It also is an important part of the history of Harry Potter fan works. As Warner Brothers sued him for it, despite it being 100% fair use.

I cannot emphasize enough, how every adult Harry Potter fan (because the language is definitely at least PG 13) should see this movie. If you are unsure, or on the fence. Just trust me. Attend this Meetup and see this film. You will not regret it.

That being said, yes, the film is almost entirely available on YouTube. But I recommend not watching it online because you will spoil some of the more outrageous jokes.

We will be screening WPDR in one of We Work's wonderful common room spaces which has a capacity of 60 people.

Please note that due to the run time of Sorcerer's Stone, we MUST start the movie promptly at 6:40pm. So it is very important to be on time, or even potentially arrive early.

We Work has graciously extended their normal closing time just so we can screen this.
