OKLAHOMA CITY -- The sixth installment of Harry Potter premiered at 12:01 a.m. last night, with plenty of Potter fans dressed up for the magical movie.

At the Harkins Theatre in Bricktown, people of all ages came in costume to show off their Harry Potter spirit.

Five theatres, including the 600-seat Cine Capri auditorium, were sold out.

Fans were lining up over five hours before showtime to grab a good seat, some rereading "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" while they waited in line.

Two local comedians, known as Twinprov, even dressed up as the Weasley Twins and performed a special Harry Potter rap in each of the theatres.
