KCFilmFest International and Elmwood Cemetery Society held the first ever movie night at the 147-year-old cemetery last night ( Oct 19, 2019 ). Drinks and food in Armour Chapel before along with a guided tour of famous graves. Yours truly along with Brad Finch ( my personal guide to all things macabre ) attended. Then, at 7pm, a short film by Anthony Ladesich was shown and then the main attraction. FRANKENSTEIN with Boris Karloff. Perfect setting for showing the classic film. There was even an owl hooting throughout the movie. There is a brief video below.

There were 33,440 people there, 100 of whom watched the movie.
