Hocus Pocus: Outdoor Movie Nights + Theatre Showings

Hocus Pocus Near Me

If you’re a fan of the Sanderson Sisters, the Black Flame Candle, talking black cats, and all things Halloween, you likely watch Hocus Pocus at least once each October. Or maybe you run amok, amok, amok watching it all month long!

Hocus Pocus features Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler, and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters – three hilarious witches who return from 17th century Salem after they are conjured up by a group of kids. Released in 1993, it has become a cult classic and Halloween favorite. {Exciting news – Hocus Pocus 2 comes out in 2022!}

If you love Halloween movies, what could be better than watching Hocus Pocus in a movie theater with other Hocus Pocus fans? Or maybe outdoors under a full moon??

If you’re wondering where you can see Hocus Pocus in theatres near you, we’ve got the scoop on local showtimes and outdoor movie nights in Lakeland and Polk County. We’ve also got a great list of fall things to do between now and Halloween night!

Editor’s Note – Hocus Pocus is rated PG but ratings were more lax in the 90’s and in my personal opinion, it would likely be considered PG-13 today. It does have some references to drugs, and the main plot line is about a virgin who lights a candle that brings the witches back (there are multiple references to his virginity). If you’ve never seen it or don’t remember it, we’d recommend reading more on Common Sense media or doing a quick Google search if you want to learn more before seeing it with your kids.
