'Hocus Pocus' to light up lawn of historic Kentucky cemetery

"Hocus Pocus" will light up the lawn of a historic Kentucky cemetery.

The Kentucky Enquirer reports that Linden Grove Cemetery in Covington is kicking off its Cinema in the Cemetery series Aug. 4 with "The Lego Movie." The 2017 remake of "Beauty and the Beast" will follow Sept. 8 and "Hocus Pocus" will be shown on Oct. 13. All movies will begin at dusk and be on a lawn without graves. The movies will be free.

Peter Nerone of the Linden Grove Cemetery Board says he hopes the movie series will help people realize Linden Grove's beauty. The 170-year-old cemetery has 100 species of trees and a variety of plants, war memorials and ornate statues.

The cemetery also has been used as a venue for plays by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company.
