Pack a picnic, gather some friends or a date, and enjoy an evening under the stars. As the sun sets over Laurel Hill’s historic tombs the grainy joys of the film experience will be brought to life during the cemetery’s annual summertime movie series. July’s feature film, Army of Darkness (1992) directed by Sam Raimi, will be presented in conjunction with the Philadelphia Film Society. This cult classic is the third installment in the Evil Dead series and offers equal parts action, horror and comedy to audiences. Arrive early for a special introduction led by Travis Trew of the Philadelphia Film Society.
Bring your own blankets or beach chairs and/or picnics. The Chilly Banana will be on site serving up some refreshing cold treats, so remember to bring cash! Army of Darkness is rated “R” and is not recommended for children.
The screening will take place on Friday, July 28 at 9:00pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, July 29 at 9:00pm). Gates open at 8:00pm. Ticket holders can check in at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance, 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132. Free parking is located in the lot directly across the street from the Gatehouse. The cost is $10/person general admission. Purchasing advance tickets is suggested.
