(NEW YORK) — Pottermore, the official website of author J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter universe, announced that tickets have gone on sale for a special star-studded screening of Rowling’s latest, the movie Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.

The bestselling author herself will attend the event — along with other celebs — at New York’s Carnegie Hall, with all proceeds going to Rowling’s international non-profit children’s organization Lumos.

The screening will be held Saturday, November 12.

Set in Harry’s Wizarding World — but in New York City in 1926, not at Hogwards in England — the film stars Oscar-winner Eddie Redmayne as a specialist in capturing escaped magical creatures.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, which also stars Colin Farrell and Ezra Miller, officially opens November 18.
