NORTH RIDGEVILLE, Ohio — The Sanderson sisters are back for another Halloween – but this time they’re taking over Northeast Ohio in a much bigger way.

Disney’s fan-favorite Hocus Pocus will be featured at the Aut-O-Rama Drive-In Theatre in North Ridgeville for three nights only from Friday, Oct. 2 through Sunday, Oct. 4. It’s part of a double feature, which also includes Casper.

“After many years, your most requested Halloween movie is now available,” the Aut-O-Rama Drive-In Theatre posted on their Facebook page Saturday.

Tickets are on sale now.

The Hocus Pocus / Casper double feature was announced just a few days after Aut-O-Rama revealed plans to showcase Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas coupled with The Addams Family on Oct. 16 and 17.

Hocus Pocus has developed a rabid fan base since its release in 1993, becoming one of Halloween’s most beloved child-friendly cult classics starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as a trio of hilariously wicked witches. A Hocus Pocus sequel is currently in the works for the Disney+ streaming service. Casting has not yet been announced.

If you can’t make it to the drive-in, Hocus Pocus will air 14 times throughout the month of October during Freeform’s annual 31 Nights of Halloween. See the full lineup HERE.
