Join us for a spook-tacular Movie Night! We have a double feature evening, with ‘Coco’ showing at 6:30pm and ‘Hocus Pocus’ at 8:30pm. Of course, all are welcome and admission is free.

The event is hosted by Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish and Academy.

Of course, a wonderful concession stand will be ready to satisfy your movie snack craving. Hosted by the Justice League, an Academy student club focused on charity, all proceeds from concessions will be donated to Hurricane Michael relief efforts.
