Family Movie Nights at Palmdale Amphitheater


See ‘Hocus Pocus’ on Oct. 13

The City of Palmdale’s popular Family Movie Nights continues with the showings of Disney Classic films “Hocus Pocus” on Friday Oct. 13 and “The Nightmare Before Christmas” on Friday, Oct. 20 at 6:45 p.m.

The 1993 film “Hocus Pocus” (PG) is set in Salem, Mass. on Halloween night. The whole town is caught in the spooky, hilarious spell when a teenage boy named Max and his little sister accidentally awaken a trio of diabolical witches executed in the 17th century.

Tim Burton’s “The Nightmare Before Christmas” (PG) introduces Jack Skellington as the pumpkin king of Halloween Town who, bored with his routine, decides to take over Christmas in this musical stop-motion animated film.

Come early to enjoy a treat trail, fun activities and a costume contest with on-stage recognition. Contest categories for individuals are spookiest, funniest, and most original; for groups, best closest to the movie showing, best duo, and best family. Registration for the contest is open from 5 to 6 pm, and the contest begins at 6:15 pm.

Children 12 years and under are admitted free but must be accompanied by a ticketed adult. Gates open at 5 pm. Bring a lawn chair or blanket. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are welcome at Family Movie Nights. Snack vendors will be on-site for your convenience. All bags and coolers will be inspected at the gate.
