Okay, so we would love to see the movies every single night of the week. But one movie a week is a great way to spend time together as a family.

It all starts on September 8 at 5:50 p.m. local time. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone will air for old and new fans alive. The following week will see The Chamber of Secrets on September 15, and then The Prisoner of Azkaban on September 22, and so on. It all accumulates the weekend before Halloween with Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on October 27.

And to celebrate the marathon, ITV has a new trailer that features scenes from every single movie. Starting with clips from The Philosopher’s Stone, you’ll see various curses, spells, potions, charms, and so much more.

This certainly isn’t the first time ITV has done a marathon like this, but there is no better way to spend a Saturday night. Well, except with a bag of popcorn or other favorite snacks. Don’t forget the hot chocolate as the nights grow darker and it gets colder.
