DOWNTOWN — Spooky movies will be shown all October at Northerly Island in the leadup to Halloween.

The Park District will host weekly screenings of horror flicks like “Hocus Pocus” and “Frankenstein.” There will also be free popcorn, warm drinks, candy and campfires set up throughout the event area where attendees can roast marshmallows.

Screenings will be outdoors, weather permitted, on Fridays. Attendees can bring their own chairs and blankets and the Park District encouraged people to wear layers for cooler nights.
