Friday the 13th Cinema in the Cemetery
The Secret Cinema has shown films in dozens of locations all around Philadelphia, ranging from private living rooms to 1000-seat capacity burlesque theaters from the 19th century. On Friday the 13th, the Secret Cinema will be screening films under the stars at Laurel Hill Cemetery.
The Secret Cinema will screen a rare film of a court-ordered exhumation film shot at Laurel Hill Cemetery in 1937. Following that film, is the evening’s feature film, Plan 9 from Outer Space. Plan 9 From Outer Space is a 1959 science fiction thriller directed by Ed Wood and bills Bela Lugosi, posthumously, as the star.
This campy film has the unofficial title of “Worst Film Ever Made,” with a plot that hinges on aliens resurrecting the earth’s dead. The cost is $10 per person a general admission. Advance registration for the program is recommended, and can be made by calling (215) 228 – 8200. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or online. Laurel Hill Cemetery is located at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132.
