This Halloween, the Sanderson Sisters are casting their spell over the Music Box! Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker star as three 17th-century Salem witches who rise from the dead to wreak havoc on the early-90s. And with HEX-A-LONG HOCUS POCUS, you can join in on the wicked mischief! Hosted by Dick O'Day, you're invited to shout, sing, cheer and scream along with the movie during our interactive screening. Plus, the magic is in your hands with our Goody Bags, full of candy, bubbles, streamers and more. So put on your wildest, wackiest Halloween costume, hop on your broom (or vacuum), and fly over to the Music Box for this family-friendly event. Dick O'Day photo credit by Rick Aguilar
