Cinema in the Cemetery: Gremlins

Friday, September 13, 2019 at 9:00 PM

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. September’s feature film, Gremlins directed by Joe Dante, will be presented in conjunction with the Philadelphia Film Society.

One of the most outrageously entertaining films of the 80s, this dark comedy follows the destruction that ensues when a gang of malevolent supernatural creatures are unleashed on a quaint small town over the course of one mayhem-filled Christmas. This film is rated PG.

The screening will take place on Friday, September 13 at 8:00 pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, September 14 at 8:00 pm). Gates open at 7:00 pm. 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.

Ticket pricing is $12/General Admission, $10/Seniors (65 & Up), $10/Students with ID, $7/Members, $6/Youth (6-12), and $0/Child (5 & Under). Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. Purchasing advance tickets is suggested.
