Eastern State Penitentiary reopens Friday (8/14)! Sean Kelley, Senior Vice President at Eastern State Penitentiary returns to BEN Around Philly with an update.

Hear all about the new safety measures in place at Eastern State Penitentiary, as well as some of the new programs they are offering (including a silent film of the prison from 1929). Sean also touches on Eastern State’s Hidden Lives Illuminated (short films created by incarcerated artists), and the cancellation of Terror Behind the Walls this year. He assures us that visiting the prison at night is sure to be plenty creepy, all by itself.

With limited capacity because of COVID-19, tours at the reopened Eastern State Penitentiary will be in small groups, and tickets will sell out fast. Buy your timed tickets in advance at EasternState.org and follow Eastern State on Facebook for some interesting virtual programing from the comfort of your own home.
