Friday, September 8 at 8pm
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. Join guest host Rodney Anonymous of The Dead Milkmen for a special screening and commentary of Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things (1972), directed by Bob Clark. In this campy cult classic, a theater troupe travels to a remote cemetery for an evening of mischievous pranks. It’s all fun and games until they unexpectedly conjure the dead and have to escape a mob of flesh eating zombies.
Bring your own blankets or beach chairs and/or picnics. The Chilly Banana will be on site serving up some refreshing cold treats—remember to bring cash!
The screening will take place on Friday, September 8 at 8:00pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, September 9 at 8:00pm). Gates open at 7:00pm. 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.
