Scavenger hunt celebrates opening of “Fantastic Beasts” film...

Fans of J.K. Rowling’s wizarding world have the chance to take part in an exciting scavenger hunt around Bury St Edmunds this weekend as the town’s Cineworld complex has teamed up with seven town centre businesses to celebrate the release of ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ on November 18. Warner Bros. Pictures and Cineworld are offering the chance to win cinema tickets and a range of other prizes.

Shops and cafes around the town centre will be displaying posters of some of the creatures depicted in the film. Intrepid scavengers can download the entry form from Cineworld’s Facebook page or pick one up at the complex, then make their way around the town centre, solving the clues and finding all the mystical animals. The competition runs from the release date of Friday 18 November until Monday 21.

Competition organiser Harriet Last, from the Cineworld complex on Parkway, said: “The scavenger hunt doesn’t require any magic powers, but will take you into some lovely shops and businesses across Bury St Edmunds. We are thrilled that so many Ourburystedmunds member businesses wanted to share the excitement of this movie’s opening weekend and we are especially grateful to Waterstones who have also contributed to the prizes we’re giving away.”

The competition is being run in partnership with the Business Improvement District (BID) organisation Ourburystedmunds. Its Chief Executive Mark Cordell added: “It’s great to see so many BID members working together in this way to promote an Ourburystedmunds business’s event. The Christmas Lights will have been switched on the day before the scavenger hunt starts which will give the town centre an added magical atmosphere for the participants.”

The movie ‘Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them’ opens in 1926 as Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident...were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt's fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.

Advance booking is advised as hundreds of tickets have already been pre-booked with the popular times filling up fast. Bookings can be made at Further details about the competition can be found on the complex’s Facebook page CineworldBSE.
