What’s happening this week in Long Beach and Orange County 10/6 – 10/13/2013
Nosferatu in the Cemetery
It seems there are many interesting events happening this month in Long Beach and Orange County. The most unique event this week is a screening of F. W. Murnau’s 1922 silent movie “Nosferatu” at Sunnyside Cemetery in Long Beach, hosted by Long Beach Cinematheque on October 10th . I cannot think of an eerier (is that a word?) place to watch this horror classic than sitting amongst the many old tombstones in historic Sunnyside Cemetery . This screening will include a live score played by local musicians, The Balboa Amusement Company Orchestra. (Their name was inspired by the Balboa Amusement Production Company – a downtown Long Beach silent movie studio that produced movies from 1913 – 1918)
Guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and picnic baskets to the show. There is limited on-site parking, but there should be plenty of parking on the surrounding streets. Tickets are $10 – available here. The show begins at 8 – but I suggest arriving a bit early to find a good spot. Sunnyside Cemetery is located at 1095 E. Willow St. in Long Beach.
Irvine Park Pumpkin Patch
The Irvine Park Railroad Pumpkin Patch is back. This is a really neat place to take the kids for some pumpkin-finding fun and activities, such as hayrides, a hay maze, pumpkin cookie decorating, panning for gold, and a haunted house. Children who bring this coloring page to the train station will receive a small prize. There are various coupons available on their website, so print those out before you go.
Irvine Park is a large regional park in Orange, home to the OC Zoo, and has a railroad, bike and surrey rentals, paddle boats, and pony rides.
