For years, ON SET CINEMA has given horror movie fans the chance to watch the cult classic I Know What You Did Last Summer at the very location where one of the scenes in the movie was filmed.

Later this month, they are putting on a screening of the film for one last time.

That’s because the location where they hold the screening, Harrell’s Department Store in Burgaw has gone out of business after 117 years due to COVID-19.

I KNOW WHAT YOU DID LAST SUMMER – Helen Chase Scene

Hey everyone, I’ll be doing one final screening of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” on Saturday, August 22nd at Harrell's Department Store (aka SHIVERS), where this incredible scene takes place in the movie!Harrell’s is located in the small town of Burgaw, North Carolina. Sadly, after being in business 117 years Harrell's will be closing their doors on July 31st due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We'll be doing individual group tours of the store so you can see exactly where all the action took place in IKWYDLS! We will end the evening with an outdoor screening of the movie behind Harrell's where Helen jumps from the window to temporarily escape The Fisherman! And if that's not enough for you, 10 brave fans will have the opportunity to spend the night inside Harrell's for the ultimate IKWYDLS slumber party! 🦀 ALL EVENT DETAILS AND TO PURCHASE TICKETS AT www.myershousenc.com/onsetcinema

“This is an incredible loss for the community of Burgaw and IKWYDLS fans everywhere,” ON SET CINEMA said on their website. “Harrell’s has contributed to generations of community groups and organizations, including youth sports, school drama, band programs, social programs, church functions, festivals and more, over the years. We want this to be a celebration of that legacy and would like to dedicate this event to the generations of hard work from Harrell family. This store will be greatly missed.”

The screening will be held on Saturday, August 22, 2020.

They will be holding individual group tours of the store so fans can see exactly where all the action took place when filming IKWYDLS.

“Check out where Julie James (Jennifer Love Hewitt) reunites with Helen and shows her the letter, run through the door Helen pounds on while fleeing from The Fisherman, check out the old pull elevator that Helen rides up to escape, see exactly where the store mannequins once stood and of course pretend to die by the glass door where Elsa gets hooked,” they said on their website.

They are also offering for 10 brave fans to spend the night inside the department store for the ultimate IKWYDLS slumber party. They will set up a TV inside the store to watch horror movies all night long and provide drinks and snacks.

“Rumor has it some spirits from the past have been lingering around the building for a long time,” they said on their website.

Tickets to the general screening are $25 and tickets for the overnight stay are $100.

The screening will be held outdoors and attendees are required to wear masks. The website says you’re welcome to take off your mask while watching the movie if you and your group are 6 feet apart from the group next to you.
