Event Details

A unique movie theater in Wheeling, Towngate offers screenings of some of America’s most iconic films.

Towngate Theatre presents Hocus Pocus
7:30 p.m. Friday, October 4, 2019 
Pre-screening buffet dinner, movie ticket & popcorn – $20 (SOLD OUT)
Movie only – $7 (No reservation required.)

“Hocus Pocus” tells the story of three witches (played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy),who are brought back from the dead in Salem, Massachusetts, as they try to steal the souls of children so they can live forever.

The family film debuted in 1993, but was not an immediate hit. Fortunately, in the more than 25 years since, audiences have come to appreciate this Halloween gem. It has become a cult classic that airs during the Halloween season.

You Can Have Dinner, too!

Moviegoers have the option to have dinner in Towngate’s social room prior to the screening. Park once and enjoy twice the fun!

Buffet dinners will be served promptly at 6:30 p.m. before each film. After dinner, head upstairs for the movie at 7:30 p.m. The cost for dinner is $20 and includes your seat for the movie, all food, soft drinks, coffee, tea, water and a box of popcorn to enjoy during the film. Beer and wine are available for purchase.

Menu includes: grilled sirloin with demi-glace; Lemon chicken with mushrooms and parsley; butternut squash risotto; roasted root vegetables; beet salad with baby spinach, goat cheese and caramelized onion; mixed green salad and break with honey butter.

Why Go To the Movie Theater?

Get off the couch! Stop binge watching by yourself. Hollywood movies are meant to be seen­ with others, in the movie theater, on the BIG screen. The actors are figuratively and literally larger than life! Get together with other movie lovers. Engage in thought-provoking conversation. You will learn more about the art and history of cinema, too.

Towngate: A unique movie theater in Wheeling.

A church-turned-theater, Towngate is located in Wheeling’s historic Centre Market District.

At Towngate, not only can you watch live theater productions, spoken word performances, improv and concerts, you can see movies, too! Towngate is also a single screen cinema. On select weekends throughout the year, we show a host of classic and independent films, thought-provoking documentaries and film shorts by local and regional filmmakers. Our movie selections encourage thought and conversation. You won’t be disappointed. Our regulars know we only show quality films. Sometimes, they show up for screenings without knowing the title of the film. They trust us that much.

Whether you consider yourself a film buff or you only like movies for the popcorn, our films will entertain and inspire. See you at Towngate!
