Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone/Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone - Dinning Hall Fire Hazzard
OK, Maybe not a slip up and maybe so. I know it's just a movie, but I noticed that when the students enter the Great Hall/Dinning room, the doors open inward. Later on when Prof. Quirrel comes running in yelling about the troll, the doors also open in (will watch when I see the rest of the movies again). Now for fire & other safety reasons, all inside doors should open out to prevent people from getting trapped inside from being unable to open the doors.
Maybe because they are wizards & witches, they can just use a wand and make them open anyway needed?

Not a slip-up. Just because wizards in a fantasy world don't follow modern building codes or "common sense safety" doesn't mean a slip-up occurred. There are countless explanations for this ranging from it being magically impossible for a fire to become a threat in the dining hall to the doors swinging both ways to the doors automagically opening in case of fire to tradition to "magical harmony" of inward opening doors, etc.

The candles floating above the tables would be a fire hazard too. Moving stairways would be a safety hazard. It's a school of magic, pretty much all bets are off.
