The New Hocus Pocus, or Hocus Pocus 2, was filmed in Rhode Island. Newport and Providence, to be exact. Can you belive it has been 30 years since this Disney classic took us on a merry broomstick ride? Well, they are back.
Yes, the Witch Sisters descended on Rhode Island for more spectacular fun.
Here are some of the filing locations. Take a road trip and see the fall colors and beautiful New England towns.
This was the scene for many shots in the film
Cranston Street Armory in Cranston, Rhode Island
The Rhode Island Natural Guard occupied the Cranston Street Armory, and Rhode Island has run the armory. A tax incentive was passed encouraging filming in Rhode Island.
Newman Congregational Church in East Providence, Rhode Island
This church has been around since 1810
Newport’s Washington Square is a historic public space that has been the site of many important events in the city’s history. The square is home to the Old Colony House.
The square was also the site of Newport’s first town meeting in 1639 and has been the site of many other important events in the city’s history. And Hocus Pocus used this for the Halloween Festival.
Today, Washington Square is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike, with its beautiful gardens and historic buildings. The square is also home to various shops and restaurants, making it a great place to spend an afternoon or evening.
A Private Catholic School was used for filing as well – Oh, the irony!
Yes, La Salle academy’s interior was part of the film.
