Halloween ‘Hocus Pocus’ at Cineworld


Age UK Isle of Wight is inviting all Islanders to grab some popcorn and celebrate Halloween with them at an exclusive screening of the 90’s Cult Classic ‘Hocus Pocus’ this October.

The screening of the spooky family comedy ‘Hocus Pocus’ (rated PG) is showing for one night only in the deluxe screen at Cineworld Cinemas Newport on Sunday 27th October at 4.30pm.

The story begins in 1693 when three sisters, Winifred, Mary and Sarah are executed for practicing witchcraft but not before their living book of spells revealed to them a curse to bring the three back from the dead. 300 years later, teenager Max Dennison decides to light the candle in order to show off to his irritating kid sister Dani and his girlfriend Alison. Now, the three witches are back and ready for a night of fun, magic and horror in the modern Salem on Halloween.

For a donation of £10 each for Adults (14 years and over); £5 each for Children (Under 14 years); £25 for a Family Ticket (2 Adults and 2 Children) you will receive admission into our exclusive screening and a fun filled Halloween pack!

Admission can be secured now via the Age UKIW website www.ageukiw.org.uk, through Facebook @AgeUKIW, or by calling the fundraising department on (01983) 301343.

Elisha Leachman, Fundraising Manager at Age UKIW, said: “We’re really excited to offer Islanders the chance to see this Halloween classic on the big screen, and hope that many will join us at our spooktacular to help raise vital funds for their local charity. This is for one night only, so book now to avoid disappointment!

“All of the profits raised go to our ‘No One Should Have No One’ Campaign. 100% stays on the Island to support the most vulnerable older people in our communities.

“We as a local, independent charity, are incredibly grateful to everyone who supports us and are looking forward to welcoming everyone there.”
