Deathly Hallows – Part One Global Movie Watch & Live Show

We debated for some time as to how we should watch the Deathly Hallows films, and after much discussion, decided that the best strategy is to split the viewing into parts, just like the pictures themselves. We settled on this mostly for continuity and timing purposes, but deep down, let’s be honest – it’s to prolong the experience by even just one single episode.

Therefore, after 185 Chapters and 173 episodes, Alohomora! is preparing to host its seventh (and the most magical?) LIVE movie viewing and call-in show! While we are only partially through Deathly Hallows the novel, we can’t WAIT to watch & discuss Deathly Hallows – Part One with all of our amazing listeners.

Join us on USTREAM Saturday, January 23rd for this exciting event! We’ll begin the movie screening party at 10:00AM Eastern Time, in which you will be able to chat with some of the podcast hosts & fans from all around the world – all while watching the movie at the exact same time. Immediately following the movie, Alohomora! will be hosting a live podcast! During this time together, we’ll be chatting about the movie, analyzing the movie adaptation from the book, closing up some discussion points on the first half of Harry’s journey to destroy the Horcruxes, and of course, taking your calls! You can give us a ring at 206-GO-ALBUS (206-462-5287) or on Skype to AlohomoraMN.

PLEASE NOTE: You will need your own copy of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part One in order to join us for the global movie screening.

In the meantime, be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, or catch up with the latest episodes of Alohomora! by subscribing to us on iTunes (for free) right here!


A big thank you Stephanie, aka YoRufusOnFire, for creating a DHP1 drinking game! We suggest coffee for the US West Coast, and a very late night Butterbeer for the Aussies 🙂


  • Yo Rufus On Fire

    AHHHHHH!!!! I’m so excited!! movie watches are so much fun! And this is one of the best if the not the best HP Movies!!

  • PenelopeClearwater

    I can’t wait!

  • Eric

    Assuming my calculations are correct, the DH Part 2 movie watch will be Saturday, May 14th!

  • TheBobOgdenAppreciationSociety

    That is a lovely 3 o’clock in the afternoon in Britain. Will be the first one that I have firstly remembered to watch and worked out what time it was in the first place!

  • ISeeThestrals

    Can’t wait. Best idea to split up the viewing with the movie-watch. Easier to focus on one movie at a time as opposed to back-to-back.

  • Ten days to go…


    • HowAmIGoingToTranslateThis

      someone’s really excited. 🙂

      • Yeah, well you’ve been around for ever. Also, there’s a reason it’s called Caps ‘Lock’.

  • ThatTimeRemusWaddiwasiedVoldy

    A drinking game you say? Is10 am too early for mimosas? I think not…

  • SlytheriNZ

    Argh, 4am NZ time the next day. Guess who’ll be getting up early??

    • ISeeThestrals

      4am really!. I fear I’d have to miss it if I had to get up that time. But glad you’re popping up to join in

      • SlytheriNZ

        I’ve enjoyed past ones too much to not want to at least try to take part. 😀

  • RavenPaw

    Wish us Australians and New Zealanders luck!


  • HowAmIGoingToTranslateThis

    It’s tomorrow! and it will be 4 p.m. where I live, so it will get dark during the movie and I think that fits the story well.

  • ThatTimeRemusWaddiwasiedVoldy

    Is the chat on the app ustream page itself?

  • Eric

    After waiting 2 hours for the live stream to begin, I just went ahead and watched the movie without it. What happened to the live stream and chat?

    • ISeeThestrals

      you mean the chat and then lives show after the movie?
      It started on time with the moviewatch. The show lost it’s connection here and there. Aside from that I experienced points where the chat froze and had to restart, but all in all it was fun just like past live shows 😀

  • That waa great fun, sad that I didn’t get the last half of it. At least I accidentally got in on the skype. 🙂

  • ISeeThestrals

    Great live show and fun movie watch.
    Can’t wait for the action part of Hallows in the next part

  • Silverdoe25

    Bummer. My favorite movie. I had to work this past Saturday.

    • ISeeThestrals

      I thought for previous movie watches, the podcast of the live show was available for download afterwards. I used to listen to some again because the ads interrupted when it was live.

      • I got no ads at all

        • ISeeThestrals

          I wasn’t the only one to get ads. It’s always been on there, which wasn’t a big problem for me. Other than that, I experienced several freezes and I had to restart the page or computer. I still enjoy joining in on the live show, and it’s nice to see a podcast version on it to listen to it later. I know I missed sections of the discussions due to whatever went wrong on my end.

  • Bill White

    When will you release live episode

    • Jessica

      I’ve been refreshing my podcast app constantly since Saturday. It is now Tuesday. I want to listen to the live episode as well 🙁
