Things To Do In Memphis: Cemetery Cinema

by Melissa Thompson


Elmwood's Cemetery Cinema offers visitors a chance to enjoy the beauty of the cemetery with a fun, unique film series. Cemetery Cinema takes place as the final light of the day washes away, and our show times are based on the setting of the sun. Films are projected onto the roof of the historic 1852 Cottage, a National Register Landmark since 1978.

All films are shown outdoors, so we encourage weather-appropriate attire. Guests should bring lawnchairs and coolers are welcome. Food truck wares and other libations are offered for sale.

A limited quantity of tickets are offered for sale for Cemetery Cinema events.

Elmwood Cemetery is excited to announce the following screening:

Friday, June 21st (rain date June 28th), 8:45 pm - Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Sponsored by Gant Systems.
