Retro Drive-In Movies will be showing some of our absolute favourite Halloween movies at Leopardstown Racecourse this weekend.

The roster of flicks is jam-packed with some Halloween classics, with all of the fun kicking off at 2.30pm on Saturday, October 26 when Harry Potter & The Order Of The Phoenix will be shown.

Then, at 6.30pm, what is arguably one of the best Halloween flicks (in my humble opinion) will be shown. Yes, there’ll be a screening of Hocus Pocus.

On Sunday, October 27 at 9.15pm, you’ll have the chance to scare the bejaysus out of yourself at a screening of Gremlins.

And then, on the bank holiday Monday, the schedule is fairly busy.

First off at 2.30pm, there’ll be a showing of Harry Potter & The Half Blood Prince.

At 6.30pm, there’ll be another screening of Hocus Pocus (because one just isn’t enough).

Then, at 9.15pm, there’ll be a super scary screening of The Amityville Horror.

And finally, on the big night, there will be two screenings, one at 6.30pm and another at 9.15pm.

First off, there will be a third showing of Hocus Pocus (we’re not complaining) and then the Tim Burton classic Nightmare Before Christmas will be shown.

Retro Drive-In Movies also released their Christmas schedule which includes screenings of festive favourites such as ElfLove Actually and The Santa Claus.
