Join us Friday, June 4th, for an outdoor showing of The Last Picture Show. This coming-of-age story was written by Larry McMurtry in 1966 and adapted for film in 1971. Directed by Peter Bogdanovich and critically-acclaimed, this film was nominated for eight academy awards, and stars Memphis-native Cybill Shepherd.
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. 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 lawn chairs and coolers are welcome and encouraged. Parking will take place outside of the cemetery on Dudley Street. Security will be made available on Dudley Street for the duration of these events.
Food Truck meals will be offered by Eat At Eric's. Preview their menu at https://eataterics.com/menu/.
