July 14 ~ Day 195 - Any guesses what the line is for??

Yes, those are Harry Potter fans waiting in the ticket holders line to enter the theater. I took the picture around 8:30pm and people started lining up from 5pm itself for the midnight show!  This theater is one of the oldest in the city and you can imagine how long the line would be at better theaters in the city.
This is a very bad picture and I was uncomfortable taking a picture from close up. I took the picture from across the street.
