We need your help.

City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Only one new arrival at Wasatch Front bargain theaters, but it's a biggie: The cinematic farewell to a beloved young wizard. ---

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 would have had to try to alienate viewers who have followed Harry's adventures for more than a decade. And it's fair to say that while it's far from a perfect piece of filmcraft, director David Yates and screenwriter Steve Kloves know exactly how to guide audiences to the satisfying conclusion. The action set pieces are stronger than in other recent installments, yet there's also an unexpected emotional force to many scenes. Maybe it's satisfying mostly as the culmination of an epic story, but it nails giving its mythic tale of passage to adulthood a lovely humanity.
