SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- Military families form a line that wraps around Sgt. Smith Theater, here, two hours before the start of a movie, July 9. Patrons packed the theater almost to its 1,500 capacity to view a free, studio appreciation, advance screening of “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2.”

The Army and Air Force Exchange Service and Warner Bros. sponsored the event to show appreciation for service members and families.

Sgt. Smith Theater shows its last movie July 10 before closing for renovations that will continue until May 2012.
