Event Details

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. July’s feature film, The Craft directed by Andrew Flemming, will be presented in conjunction with the Philadelphia Film Society.

Soon after arriving at a new school, Sarah (Robin Tunney) falls in with a trio of young witches, presided over by bratty, vengeful Nancy (Fairuza Balk), the newly-formed coven are soon able to harness tremendous supernatural abilities. But will the girls be tempted to do more harm than good with these newfound powers? Full of magic, catty one-liners, and 90s goth fashion, this outrageous cult favorite will have viewers spellbound. Please note: this film is rated R.

Arrive early for an introduction led by Travis Trew of the Philadelphia Film Society, and a chance to meet an adoptable black cat from the Women’s Humane Society. Food trucks and witchy vendors will also be on site throughout the evening. Bring your own blankets or beach chairs.

The screening will take place on Friday, July 13 at 8:00pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, July 14 at 9:00pm). 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 $12/person general admission. Purchasing advance tickets is suggested.

About Women’s Humane Society:
If you just so happen to be hanging out at a cemetery…amid a gathering of witches…on a Friday that falls on the 13th evening of the month…and a black cat crosses your path…then sign the adoption papers and take that bitty-panther home! The Women’s Humane Society will be on hand throughout the night to introduce movie-goers to their adoptable animals, appropriately represented by mysterious felines in shadowy shades of midnight, raven and ebony. Like Laurel Hill Cemetery, the Women’s Humane Society has a long history and deep Philly roots. It was founded in 1869 as the First Animal Shelter in America! Today, the Society helps over 3,000 homeless animals each year through adoption, foster and rescue; provides 10,000 pet families with affordable high-quality vet care; and serves as a proud member of the Philadelphia No-Kill Coalition. With your help, we can make Friday the 13th the luckiest day ever for a few deserving shelter animals!
