Scary Movie Night

A New Beginning to the first step in terror! We're excited to present another terrifying off-site outdoor double-feature of Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning and Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan on Friday, July 13th in the Rocky Woods!

This highly immersive film-going experience puts you at the Rocky Woods, in Medfield, MA, watching two of the most iconic Camp Slasher films in cinema history! Expertly projected onto a giant screen set up right beside a pond eerily similar to the infamous Crystal Lake, you'll feel like Jason is lurking just behind the trees as you watch him begin anew (Part V), and menace the island of Manhattan(Part VIII).

The Coolidge After Midnite film series is proud to partner with the Trustees of Reservations for this unique event! Camp sites are available! Register with the Trustees directly (charlesrivervalley@thetrustees.org) for details! Rocky Woods is one of over a hundred special places protected and managed by The Trustees. Come early to set up your camp site and enjoy miles of trails,views from the summit of Cedar Hill.

ABOUT THE FILMS
Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning - This time he seems to have set his sights on the young patients at a secluded halfway house. And more than a few of his teen targets end up in half, in quarters...you name it, Jason does it.
Friday the 13th Part VIII: Jason Takes Manhattan - After an electrifying return from the bottom of his Crystal Lake grave, indestructible psycho-slasher Jason Voorhees ships out to visit the Big Apple and paints the town red!

ABOUT THE TRUSTEES
We are more than 100,000 people like you who love the outdoors, who love the distinctive charms of New England, and who believe in celebrating and protecting them, for everyone, forever. Together with our neighbors, we protect the distinct character of our communities and inspire a commitment to our special places. Our passion is to share with everyone the irreplaceable natural and cultural treasures we care for. We enjoy and care for more than 100 special places – nearly 25,000 acres – all around Massachusetts. And we are actively building an extended family of friends and neighbors across the state that can help in their different ways.

ABOUT ROCKY WOODS
With 6.5 miles of trails winding through varied terrain, Rocky Woods is a year-round destination for outdoors lovers of all abilities. The 0.75-mile loop around Chickering Pond, the largest of the reservation’s five man-made ponds, is a family favorite. From I-95/Rt. 128 (Exit 16B): Rt. 109 West for 5.7 mi. Turn right onto Hartford St. and follow for 0.6 mi. to entrance and parking (100 cars) on left.
