Hocus Pocus at Arnos Vale Cemetery

EARLY SCREENING - DOORS: 19:45 | FILM STARTS 20:05 LATE SCREENING - DOORS: 22:00 | FILM STARTS 22:20

BFF's 2022 Halloween season roars to life with two nights of appropriately spooky films, from the family-friendly to the blood-curdling, at Arnos Vale Cemetery! Join after dark in Bristol’s very own necropolis – get a drink from the pop-up bar then make your way through the graveyard to the beautiful Anglican Chapel to take your seat for the show.

New for 2022, BFF are delighted to be offering a limited number of spaces on pre-film Cemetery Tours, guided by one of Arnos Vale’s experts – learn more about the colourful and fascinating history of the Cemetery after dark, if you’re feeling brave enough...!

The series continues with the wonderfully witchy Hocus Pocus. The ghoulish Sanderson sisters have been terrorising fans for nearly 30 years (we know, sorry!), and with the long-anticipated sequel arriving this Autumn, there’s never been a better time to reacquaint yourselves with the original Salem legend…

ABOUT THE FILM 1993 | PG | 96 mins

Salem teenager Max reluctantly takes his younger sister trick-or-treating on Halloween. However, when they sneak into a former museum and Max inadvertently resurrects the wicked Sanderson sisters, it’s a race against time to save the souls of Salem from the clutches of the evil witches before they permanently restore themselves.
