…for our annual “Haunted Films at Haunted Places.”
In a partnership with the Echo Park Film Center Filmmobile, we present free outdoor screenings of horror films at unusual locations that are said to be haunted, and discuss that ghost lore before showing the film. All are welcome to this family-friendly event. Don’t forget to bring chairs and flashlights.
Time: movie starts at 8:00pm (GHOULA CHALLENGE at 7:00pm)
Date: October 5th (Saturday)
Location: San Fernando Pioneer Memorial Cemetery
14451 Bledsoe St, Sylmar (map)
Movie: “Plan 9 From Outer Space” (AKA “Grave Robbers From Outer Space”)
This year we will be screening director Ed Wood’s masterpiece “Plan 9 From Outer Space,” a campy, low-budget, cult-classic that is famous for being the worst movie ever made in Hollywood, and… was filmed in the (haunted) San Fernando Pioneer Cemetery, because one of it’s stars, Tor Johnson (pictured above with Vampira), lived around the corner from the then abandoned graveyard (pictured below). This the second oldest cemetery in the San Fernando Valley (The San Fernando Mission has the oldest), and the oldest non-sectarian cemetery.
