Saturday, June 4 – Cinema in the Cemetery
Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery, 2945 Cedar Ave. S., Minneapolis

Ever want to watch a movie in a cemetery? Thanks to Friends of the Cemetery, you can. The all-volunteer organization is dedicated to the preservation and restoration of the Minneapolis Pioneers and Soldiers Memorial Cemetery. Their main focus is on community outreach and education, which includes screenings of movies.

The movie selection is Buster Keaton’s last great silent comedy, The Cameraman, with live accompaniment by Dreamland Faces.

The gates open at 7:00 pm and the movie starts at 8:30 pm. That gives you plenty of time to explore the cemetery and participate in a smart phone history hunt, too. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase, and blankets and lawn chairs are welcome. Tickets are $8 in advance; $10 at the door.

Sunday, June 5 – Minneapolis Craft Market
Harriet Brewing, 3036 Minnehaha Ave., Minneapolis

Discover emerging artists and new design talent every Sunday in June at Harriet Brewing. Each week, a different crop of talented people will be on hand showcasing their wares. There will also be live music, and of course, beer.

Modeled after the London street market, which happens rain or shine, the Minneapolis Craft Market is happening every Sunday through December 2016, moving to a different tap room or brewery each month.

The fun is happening from 12:00 pm until 6:00 pm and is free and open to the public.
