The manager of a Paris theater canceled a special screening of “Harry Potter” for a group of Jewish children after receiving threats. Guy Didier said he received over 300 telephoned threats and another 100 by e-mail, apparently related to the Mideast crisis, after the Jewish National Fund asked to rent the cinema to screen the film for 800 Jewish children.
