The holidays have been a time for ghost stories since way before Dickens, so a visit to the cemetery on a cold winter’s night is actually in keeping with tradition. If you can bypass the spooky factor, venture into picturesque Green-Wood this evening for Silent Night — Classic Movies in a Gothic Setting. The historic chapel will host a genre-diverse selection of films from comedies to westerns, all scored live by professional accompanist Ben Model. See early feminist firecracker Florence LaBadie — now a "permanent resident" of Green-Wood — in Petticoat Camp (1912) as she and her gal pals forge a manifesto to their husbands signed "your ex-slaves" and row off to their own island of equal rights. Other features star "locals" William S. Hart and Charles Inslee. Cozy up to the hot toddy bar to liven up the night.
