WITH families in Northwich and around Cheshire being told to find new ways of celebrating Halloween this year, going out to watch a scary movie in your bubble might be one such option.

The Odeon in Barons Quay are showing several family friendly scary movies this weekend and here's what's on:

Northwich Guardian:

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Tim Burton's classic 1993 animation is one hell of a ghoulish tale.

Jack Skellington, the pumpkin king of Halloween Town, is bored with doing the same thing every year for Halloween.

One day he stumbles into Christmas Town, and is so taken with the idea of Christmas that he tries to get the resident bats, ghouls, and goblins of Halloween Town to help him put on Christmas instead of Halloween -- but alas, they can't get it quite right.

Friday, 13.20pm, Saturday, 13.15pm and Sunday, 13.15pm

Northwich Guardian:

Hocus Pocus

Bette Middler and Sarah Jessica Parker star in this Walt Disney classic from 1993.

A curious youngster moves to Salem, where he struggles to fit in before awakening a trio of diabolical witches that were executed in the 17th century.

300 years have passed since the Sanderson sisters were executed for practicing dark witchcraft.

Returning to life thanks to a combination of a spell spoken before their demise and the accidental actions of Max, the new-kid-in-town, the sisters have but one night to secure their continuing existence.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday - all screenings start at 15.30pm

Northwich Guardian:

The Addams Family

The 2019 animated remake of the classic tale of the macabre family Addams.

Charlize Theron provides the voice of Morticia while rapper Snoop Dogg provides some handy snizzle to IT.

Gomez and Morticia Addams move to a derelict asylum in New Jersey, surrounded by a marsh and hidden by a fog at the top of a mountain, to raise a family.

Thirteen years later, Gomez is teaching his son Pugsley the saber tradition of the Addams family while Wednesday is questioning her mother about the world outside the mansion gate.

Meanwhile, TV host Margaux Needler is busy designing and building the planned community of Assimilation nearby.

When the marsh is drained and the Addams home is revealed, Margaux decides to get rid of the Addams Family.

Friday, 12.30pm, Saturday, 13.45pm, Sunday, 11.30am
