For the first time in nearly 100 years, Friday the 13th falls on the same night as the full moon. Tonight has the potential to be one of the spookiest nights in a generation. While the annual zombie massacre is behind us already, here are a couple of ways to spend the historic night in style.
Temple of Doom at the Orpheum Movie Series: Monkey brains, rooms full of bugs, and the craziest heart transplant of all time. What better way to honor the spirit of the evening than by revisiting Indiana Jones’ creepiest adventure ever? The Orpheum will be screening Spielberg’s classic, to celebrate both Friday 13th as well as the 30th anniversary of the film’s release. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the movie starts at 7. Tickets can be purchased at the door or online. KALI MA!
Investigation of Elmwood Cemetery For those who are truly wishing to delve into the supernatural, join Expedition Unknown at the Elmwood Cemetery from 7 p.m-9 p.m. as this Paranormal Investigation Society teaches you how to “discover what can’t easily be seen.” The cemetery has had multiple reports of unexplained activities and if there were ever a night to get in touch with the paranormal it would be tonight! The class is only for those 18 and older. Walking shoes are encouraged as well recording devices. Payment will not be accepted at the door but tickets can be found online.
John Butler Trio at Minglewood So maybe you’re not into ghosts or zombies, but you wouldn’t mind going to see an incredibly talented band who is, you could always go see the John Butler Trio at Minglewood Hall. The Australian based band has a reputation for putting on a fantastic live show so maybe it won’t be scary but it will be….*ahem*….scary good. The show starts at 7 p.m. and tickets can be bought online as well.
Don’t let this night go to waste Memphis..After all, it only happens once in a lifetime!
