Controversy Over ‘Cemetery Cinema’ in Wausau’s Restlawn Memorial Park
Watch Ghostbusters on the big screen…in a cemetery? Count me in!
But it seems the residents of Wausau, where the first ‘Cemetery Cinema’ is scheduled to happen in Restlawn Memorial Park this August, aren’t so excited.
“For me, it’s a spiritual thing and I find it really disrespectful to say that there’s going to be a movie at the cemetery,” one disgruntled resident told WSAW-TV.
A representative of Restlawn said the idea wasn’t intended to offend anyone, and it isn’t happening where anyone is buried. The event is supposed to be about community outreach, providing free, fun family entertainment.
Something tells me the permanent residents of the cemetery probably won’t mind.
