Paul Nelson, KSL Newsradio The magic wands are out, the Gryffindor colors are flying, and Utahns are braving the heat to get good seats for "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix."

Cory Gardner said, "We've got our robes, we've got our house uniforms."

Gardner shows me some of the costumes he has for the midnight showing of Harry Potter. He'll have waited outside Jordan Commons literally more than 24 hours for this movie.

I asked Cory if he was a nerd. At first he said no, but then he admitted he was.

Kit Spencer says she belongs to the House of Gryffindor, but she'll try not to pick a fight with someone from Slytherin. "However, if someone like Malfoy showed up, I'd have to punch him in the nose," she said.

Mia Davis made her own cloak and robes, but the triple-digit heat became a problem. "When you have all that on, I though I was going to die," she said.

I didn't have the heart to tell them Jordan Commons lets you pick your seat in advance, so they didn't have to wait outside.
