‘Hocus Pocus’ will be the focus of this outdoor movie series – NBC Los Angeles


What there is to know

  • Rooftop Cinema Club has three locations around Los Angeles: El Segundo, DTLA and the Arts District
  • ‘Halloween’ (1978), ‘The Blair Witch Project’ and ‘The Cabin in the Woods’ are scheduled for October (check location before purchasing ticket)
  • A pair of “Wooftop” projections will raise a howl at venues in El Segundo and the Arts District

How many tricks can you personally do in the month of October, in general?

This question can be difficult to answer, especially if your impulse is to choose “a lot of sleight of hand” and “a lot of sleight of hand” among your answers.

Regardless of your stance on issues involving hocus and pocus, especially when the most bewitched month arrives, you’ll be in high spirits when you hear this Halloween news: Rooftop movie club will fill its screens with Sanderson-style sass throughout October, giving the timeless sisters complete cinematic reign.

Granted, the Arts District, El Segundo, and DTLA venues won’t be streaming the beloved Disney film 24 hours a day, but it will happily materialize multiple times throughout the month.

And October 30? You can bet your Binx that something special will be served: “Hocus Pocus” will be screened three times in a row, all to add an otherworldly shine to All Hallows Eve Eve.

Of course, the witchcraft-centric celebration will pop up at other times in the Rooftop Cinema Club schedule, with witch-themed films on the weekend of October 22 and 23. “Practical Magic”, “The Blair Witch Project” and other coven-cool treats are on the program.

Also look for a pair of “Wooftop” projections, giving humans and dogs a chance to enjoy a movie together. “Edward Scissorhands” will screen in El Segundo on October 21 and “Beetlejuice” will be convened on October 25 in the Arts District. (Both films feature puppies in brief but memorable cameos.)

“No,” “Coraline,” and “The Ring” also sparkle into a chilling, flickful existence on the program, but take note of where you’ll head when you buy your ticketand when, because each destination has its own unique schedule.
