It just isn’t Halloween unless you have watched the movie “Hocus Pocus” at least a dozen times! It’s a classic Disney movie that the whole family loves watching. After moving to Salem, Mass., teenager Max Dennison explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani and their new friend, Allison. After dismissing a story Allison tells as superstitious, Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches, the Sanderson sisters, (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kathy Najimy) who used to live in the house. Now, with the help of a magical cat, the kids must steal the witches’ book of spells to stop them from becoming immortal.
You can capture the Halloween spirit at The Capitol Theatre on Wednesday, October 30, in bringing the Sanderson sisters back to life one more time! Join actress Kathy Najimy for a live discussion and Q&A before a screening of this classic Halloween movie. She’ll be telling behind-the-scenes stories and answering your questions in-person before a screening of this must-see movie of the season.
According to Sanderson sister Winifred (Bette Midler), All Hallows’ Eve has become a night of frolic, where children wear costumes and run amok! So, grab your broom or — your vacuum — and fly on over in your best witchy wear to take part in a costume contest, judged by Mary Sanderson (Kathy Najimy) herself!
Relive this Halloween tradition, or experience for the first time the hilarity of these witches, desperate for immortality. Will they perform their spells before sunrise? Come see “An In-Person Conversation” with Kathy Najimy to find out!
The events will take place from 7-9pm. For more information visit thewhiting.com.
