Cinematery will look a little different this year. We still want people to enjoy the Cemetery at night, but we want to make sure we do it safely! Tickets are limited to 100 people.

Join us for an exclusive picnic at a gorgeous Washington landmark. Your ticket will include dinner, provided by District Restaurant Group. Your adult ticket will include a meal and 2 alcoholic drinks. Children tickets are available at a discounted rate.

Meals will include:
Choice of hamburger, cheeseburger, veggie burger, or chicken sandwich
Choice of chips and a non-alcoholic drink (water or soda)

As a bonus, we will be showing a movie at our picnic. The movie will be “10 Things I Hate About You.” This outdoor summer movie series offers audiences one of the most magical nightlife entertainment experiences in Washington, DC. This summer, we are partnering with the Folger Shakespeare Library to host “Shakespeare Reimagined” featuring fun movies that we all love and had no idea were based on Shakespeare’s plays. Before the film, Folger Library staff will talk about the play the movie is based on as well as fun facts about the play and Shakespeare’s life. Come early to be a part of the fun!

The movie will begin at sunset, around 8:30 pm. Gates open at 6:30 pm.

All donations go towards our 501(c)3 nonprofit and the continued preservation of our historic cemetery.

Social distancing will be enforced
Face coverings are required at entry and exit, and strongly encouraged elsewhere.
No dogs, please!
Although it is an outdoor space, no smoking while seated around others watching the movie.
