DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

The Julien Dubuque International Film Festival will host a costume contest and a screening of the film "Hocus Pocus" Saturday, Oct. 24 at the Grand Opera House.

Doors open at 3:30 p.m., and the costume contest will run until 4:15 p.m.  Participants in the 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.
