It's a new twist on an event you've come to love!

Join us online on Saturday, October 10th at 7:00 pm for the Soul of the City Film Premiere, benefiting Elmwood Cemetery!

We can't safely invite hundreds of our friends to the cemetery for the normal costume tour that takes place every October, so instead we're bringing it to your home. That's right! You'll meet historical figures from Memphis' past: mayors, famed photographers, musicians, tragic figures, scoundrels, judges, and more.

You'll also be treated to Elmwood facts and ephemera! Hear from our deeply knowledgeable staff and volunteers and learn about what makes Elmwood so precious, like cradle gardening, tree facts, historic photography, our archived documents, and treasured antiques not seen elsewhere in town.

The film will premiere online and it will be free to all, broadcast from YouTube, Vimeo, and Facebook.

And you can still participate from home. Buy in to the event at the level of your choice, either as a Sponsor, or as a Participant!
