Downtown Nampa Hosting Screening of Hocus Pocus
It's hard to believe that it's been almost THREE decades since the since Max accidentally summoned the Sanderson sisters back to their cottage in Salem, Massachusetts.
The 1993 film has proven to stand the test of time as kids who grew up in the late 80s and early 90s are now passing it on to their children. In fact, in what's proven to be a very unconventional year at the box office it's 2020 re-release pulled in $1.9 million making it the #2 movie behind Tenet last weekend.
Downtown Nampa is making it the center piece of their Halloween celebration this year. Rather than proceeding with their normal Trick-Or-Treat event, they'll be showing Hocus Pocus in Lloyd Square on Saturday, October 24. Families are invited to bring their own chairs or picnic blankets and claim one of the free family viewing spaces on the lawn in Llyod Square. They're available on a first come, first serve basis.
The first 100 kids to arrive will get free treat bags. If you're hungry, they'll be setting up a a food near the park starting at 5:30. The movie will begin around dusk when it's dark enough to see the big screen.
Can't wait that long to relive the magic on the big screen? The Halloween favorite is currently playing The Majestic, Village Cinemas, Reel Luxe Theaters (in both Eagle and Caldwell,) and Overland Park Cinemas. It's also currently available on Disney+.
