‘Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2’

Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint, Emma Watson

Director: David Yates

Rated: PG-13


And so we come to the end. After 10 years and eight movies, Harry Potter and You Know Who face off for a finale that makes for a very satisfying ending to the longest, most successful movie franchise in history.


Downtown get around … Beaumont Main Street hosted Recreate recently with creative duo Grace Mathis and Lorena Head co-chairing this innovative fundraiser. This fun-filled event combined all art mediums — music, fashion and visual art. Guests noshed on tasty bites and sipped ice-cold beer and wine as they took in all the happenings in and around the historic Fire Museum of Texas.


Although this movie will hardly be anointed the comedy of the summer, it does benefit from the royalty cast as its leads. The pairing of Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts brings a respite from super heroes and clanking robots, and it’s a welcome offering even though it has some weak spots, mainly its premise.


‘Bad Teacher’

Despite the ban on the sale and use of fireworks in Jefferson and the surrounding counties, the show must and will go on!

The city of Beaumont’s traditional Fourth of July celebration with music, concert, food, drinks and the grand finale — fireworks — will be as big, bright and booming as it has been for the last 25 years.
