POSTPONED TO OCTOBER Cinematery: West Side Story
June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
This outdoor summer movie series offers audiences one of the most magical nightlife entertainment experiences in Washington, DC.
In addition to showcasing the best of cinema, cemetery screenings feature a pre-show DJ and an opportunity to picnic at a gorgeous Washington landmark.
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!
BYOB and dinner, too. The movie will begin at sunset, around 8:30 pm. Gates open at 7 pm.
$10 suggested donation at the main gate. All donations go towards our 501(c)3 nonprofit and the continued preservation of our historic cemetery.
