Harry, Carrie rub elbows

Bizzers bring the kids to 'Potter' party

Though the movie is more grownup than its predecessors, the Lincoln Center premiere of Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1” was all about the kids.

At the vast party tent outside the Metropolitan Opera, celebs arrived with tots in tow. Matthew Broderick and son James entered with Sarah Jessica Parker, who wore a black blazer and dress combo with a pair of blue suede Nicholas Kirkwood heels that were the focus of many a jealous eyeball. “I have to give ’em back tomorrow,” Parker said ruefully.

Warners set up a lavish playroom appointed with the new hands-free Xbox peripheral gadget, the Kinect (partyers played the Potter 7 videogame, of course), and a big dessert buffet that sent all the kiddies into sugar orbit.

On the biz side, Warners topper Alan Horn disclosed why the cast stuck around for eight pics: “It was a combination of being very fair financially and doing the right thing by these people — all of them, including the adult actors — and having them internalize, episode by episode, that they are with a quality piece of work.”
