It’s been nearly thirty years.
Three decades since a careless someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century Sanderson sisters, the Halloween flick has transformed into a beloved cult classic, with SJP, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy becoming the Halloween queens of our teenage-to-adult fantasies.
This month, the long-awaited spooky sequel will finally magic its way onto our screens when it becomes available to stream on Disney+.
And while we’re all for staying cosy under the duvet most nights, this release is the one time we are craving a night of mischief in a room full of fellow guys and ghouls.
Luckily for us, Cyprus Avenue is hosting a Hocus Pocus 2 screening as part of a witch-themed bonanza of Salem drag and fancy dress- brought to you by Cork Drag Haus Mockie-Ah.
“We couldn’t let the release of the campiest movie of the year go without a cinema release! So we are throwing a massive witch-themed night to celebrate,” said the crew on Instagram.

The Mockie Ah queens will perform a witch-themed drag show celebrating all of your favourite witches and there will also be a best-dressed competition on the night (before you sit down for an hour of cackles and fright) with prizes for the best witchy costumes.
The magic starts on Sunday, October 2nd at 7pm. You can head on over to their socials or check out Eventbrite here. Tickets are €12 excluding booking fee.
