Didn’t think a movie night in a cemetery could be romantic? Perhaps you are a tad too scared to go by yourselves, so drag another couple to a night under the stars at Fairbanks Lawn. We promise, the residents won’t make too much noise. Dating back to 2002, the movies allow you and others to cuddle up together on a blanket and watch some cinematic offerings, albeit while the residents sleep. Seating is entirely on a first-come first-served basis. You can also enjoy music before and after the movie. Check with Cinespia for upcoming shows later this year.
