New England News: Revisiting Salem's 'Hocus Pocus' Locations

A look at Salem and a couple Marblehead locations from Disney's cult classic.


Editor's Note: This article originally appeared on Salem Patch on September 25, 2012.


It's been 19 years since "Hocus Pocus" hit theaters, but we're pretty sure North Shore residents can still enjoy a showing of this family favorite, especially since it hits so close to home.

In preparation for the bewitching season, we figured we'd bring you back to the Bette Midler hit, which was partially filmed on the North Shore.

With the generous help our our Patch editors — one with lifelong Salem ties and our Marblehead Patch expert, as well as one of our contributors, we hit the streets and snapped photos to reacquaint you with some of the locations from this Halloween classic.

Peruse our captions and be whisked away to 1993, and be sure to watch the movie, but remember — don't light the Black Flame Candle!

Happy Halloween!
