Moon Lite Drive-In Theater
Thursday, October 21 at 6:30 pm
In the aftermath of the Civil War and the harrowing loss of life it caused, a new movement swept across the country. Focused on the belief that departed souls could communicate with the living, Spiritualism began in upstate New York and quickly became a point of fascination for some and derision for others. In Terre Haute, Spiritualism was championed by Dr. Allen Pence, the founder of the First Spiritualist Society in 1867. Six years later, the medium Anna Stewart and her family moved to Terre Haute where her séances drew large crowds. Learn about these two pivotal figures in local Spiritualism with a short film from Vigo County Public Library's Special Collections Department. Then enjoy the haunting 1944 film The Uninvited, where two siblings purchase an 18th-century house plagued by paranormal events.
