Chicago Cemetery to Host Nighttime Horror Movie Screening

Bohemian National Cemetary will show "Sinister" on Aug. 14

An upcoming horror movie screening is about to one-up all other showings on the creepiness scale by its choice of venue — a cemetery.

Chicago's historic Bohemian National Cemetery on the North Side will host its first-ever free nighttime movie screening on Aug. 14. The cemetery will show the horror movie "Sinister" in anticipation of the opening of its sequel, "Sinister 2."

The movie screening will take place on cemetery grounds in the picnic area. While there are no gravestones in the picnic area, viewers will still be surrounded by grave sites as they watch the movie.

Gramercy Pictures, the distributor for "Sinister 2," is putting on the movie screening.

Gates open at Bohemian National Cemetery at 8 p.m., and the movie begins at 9 p.m. The cemetery is located at Pulaski and Foster in the North Park neighborhood.

The screening is free and open to the public, and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Guests are encouraged to bring blankets to sit on.

Alcoholic beverages are not allowed in the cemetery.
