Giveaway: Win tickets to the Halloween screening of Hocus Pocus

Hope you had a great weekend, mamas! We know that finding fun, socially-distanced entertainment or date nights can be tricky these days. But we’re fortunate in Northwest Arkansas to have companies that are finding creative ways to help provide some fun options. Last month, Walton Arts Center and the Walmart AMP launched Saturday Cinema, screenings of classic movies, documentaries and recorded performances on the large screens at each venue.

This Saturday afternoon at 2 p.m., on Halloween, October 31, 2020, there will be a Saturday Cinema event for the screening of Hocus Pocus at the Walton Arts Center. So we’re hosting a quick giveaway for FOUR tickets to this family event! Throw your name into the online hat by Wednesday at noon because we’ll choose a winner at random by the end of that day. 

While large-scale performances are suspended through the end of 2020, smaller-scale intermission programming, including Saturday Cinema, is made possible in part by the Ghost Light Recovery Fund.

Safety precautions: 

Walton Arts Center and the Walmart AMP have implemented additional health and safety precautions to protect patrons and staff from the spread of COVID-19. These precautions have been approved by the Arkansas Department of Health.

Masks are required and physical distancing will be in place. Cashless concessions will be available.

About this movie: Hocus Pocus

There’s a good reason this PG-rated movie is STILL a Halloween favorite, even though Hocus Pocus was originally released in theatres in 1993. The cast is amazing and the story is so much fun.

After moving to Salem, Mass., teenager Max Dennison (Omri Katz) explores an abandoned house with his sister Dani (Thora Birch) and their new friend, Allison (Vinessa Shaw). After dismissing a story Allison tells as superstitious, Max accidentally frees a coven of evil witches (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. (The movie run time is 96 minutes.)
