JULIEN DUBUQUE INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL TO HOST HALLOWEEN COSTUME CONTEST, FILM
The Julien Dubuque International Film Festival will host a costume contest and screening of the Disney film "Hocus Pocus" on Saturday, Oct. 24, at the Grand Opera House, 135 W. 8th St.
Doors open at 3:30 p.m. and the costume contest is from 3:30 to 4:15 p.m. Participants in the costume contest must be in the lobby of the theater before 4 p.m. to be considered.
"Hocus Pocus" will be screened at 4:30 p.m. The 1993 Disney film stars Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker as witch sisters who are resurrected in Salem, Massachusetts on Halloween night. It is up to two teenagers, a young girl and an immortal cat to put an end to the witches' reign of terror once and for all.
"This is such a fun Halloween movie and it continues to be popular years after it was released," said Susan Gorrell, executive director of the film festival. "We thought this would be a fun way to get in the spirit of Halloween."
The family-friendly event will also include goodie bags and prizes. Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at www.thegrandoperahouse.com or at the door.
