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. The final film in the series, Nosferatu directed by F.W. Murnau, will be presented in conjunction with Not So Silent Cinema. Travel into the ethereal Transylvanian mountains and experience the full horror of the film with a live quartet of avant-Klezmorim as they blend a haunting tapestry of Klezmer motifs, Gypsy grooves, avant-garde textures, and classic horror effects. Come see for yourself how the music creates an eerie backdrop to the story of the mysterious Count Orlock (Max Schreck), and the hapless visitors in his Transylvania estate. An original score by Brendan Cooney will be performed live by Carlos Santiago (violin), Larry Goldfinger (clarinet), Brendan Cooney (piano) and Chris Coyle (bass). Bring your own blankets or beach chairs and/or picnics.
The screening will take place on Friday, September 28 at 8:00pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, September 29 at 8:00pm). The cemetery 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 $12/person general admission. Purchasing advance tickets is suggested.
