Cinema in the Cemetery: Wall-E

Wall-E at West Laurel Hill Cemetery August 14, 2021, at 8:00 pm

Pack a picnic, gather some friends or a date, and enjoy an evening under the stars! As the sun sets over the historic tombs, the grainy joys of the film experience will be brought to life during the Friends of Laurel Hill & West Laurel Hill Cemeteries’ annual Cinema in the Cemetery series! August’s first film will be WALL-E, presented in conjunction with the Philadelphia Film Society.

Philadelphia Film Festival

About the film:

What if mankind had to leave Earth and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off? After hundreds of years doing what he was built for, WALL•E discovers a new purpose in life when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet’s future, and races back to space to report to the humans. Meanwhile, WALL•E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most imaginative adventures ever brought to the big screen.
