I'm guessing 1993 was the best year for Halloween movies because two absolute classics made their debuts that year. "Hocus Pocus," the story of the Sanderson Sisters, first put a spell on movie screens July 16, 1993.

Then right before Halloween, Tim Burton's "The Nightmare Before Christmas" started haunting movie theatres on Oct. 29, 1993. Just in time for viewers to travel to Halloweentown for the spooky holiday that year.

See both Halloween classics back-to-back at two Oklahoma drive-in theatres!

Over the past 30 years, both "Hocus Pocus" and "The Nightmare Before Christmas" have become Halloween classics! You can see decorations, costumes, t-shirts, accessories and much of the Sanderson Sisters and Jack Skeleton every Halloween. And if watching the films Halloween weekend is part of your Halloween traditions, then shake things up this year by watching the films at two of Oklahoma's historic drive-in movie theatres!
