Is it too early to break out the Halloween costumes?

An Irving Park cemetery is getting ready for its annual role as a spooky fall destination by hosting a free, nighttime screening of Hocus Pocus this weekend. The classic Disney film starring Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy follows three witchy sisters who and the mischief they get up to after encountering a group of teenagers. The 1993 film flopped among critics, but this campy film and its star cast are perfect way to ring in fall.

Watch it Saturday, Sept. 26 at 7:30 p.m. at the Irving Park Cemetery at 7777 W. Irving Park Rd. Gates open at 6:30 p.m. And check out the Facebook event here.
