Hearthside Museum Presents Fall Drive-In Movie Night – “Ghost”
Hearthside Museum will be showing the 1990 blockbuster film, “Ghost,” as a drive-in movie at Chase Farm Park on Saturday, Nov. 6th, marking the end of its Classic Movie Series this season. The movie, which stars Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, is both a ghost story and a romance. It was also an Academy Award winner and the highest grossing movie when it was released over 30 years ago.
“This film was selected to be part of the focus on ‘Death, Mourning, & the Afterlife,’ that started earlier this month with the Gone But Not Forgotten exhibit about Victorian mourning traditions, and continues in November with ‘The History of the Paranormal’ exhibit,” states Kathy Hartley of the Friends of Hearthside. “The entertaining movie raises the question as to whether it is possible to communicate with the other side.”
The story is about a murdered banker whose ghost sets out to save his girlfriend from the person who killed him by enlisting the help of a psychic who carries his message to her. It is a ghost story told from the ghost’s perspective. Whoopi Goldberg plays the psychic in the film which earned her an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, and the film also won an award for Best Screenplay.
Tickets must be purchased in advance by Nov. 5 through www.hearthsidehouse.org. Admission is $12 per person. Event begins at 6:30 p.m. In case of inclement weather, it will be moved to Sunday but will start an hour earlier with the change in daylight savings time.
All proceeds benefit Hearthside’s mission to bring history to life through its programs and exhibits. The Friends of Hearthside is a nonprofit, volunteer organization who serve as stewards of the four historic properties at the Great Road Heritage Campus at Chase Farm Park.
