If you have orinthophobia, perhaps the only thing more terrifying than the thought of a bird attack is watching birds attack Tippi Hedren among thousands and thousands of dead people. Congressional Cemetery is happy to oblige.
The Capitol Hill resting place is hosting its first Cinematery on May 15 with a screening of Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 classic horror film. It's a formula other historic cemeteries have explored before, including the Hollywood Forever Cemetery's Cinespia series, where you can watch movie stars' past work while hanging out among their remains!
The gates at 1801 E St. SE squeak creepily open at 7:30 p.m., and the movie starts at 8:30 p.m. Bring your own chairs, food, beverage. Suggested donation, cash only, is $10. If it rains, the reschedule date is May 28.
