THEY'RE COMING TO GET YOU, BARBARA. If you've never seen George A. Romero's zombie masterpiece, or never seen it projected on a big screen, you're in for a treat! Horror fans and cinephiles alike revere the film that launched the entire zombie genre. If you are a fan of "The Walking Dead," you owe this film a debt of gratitude for its existence!
As always, you can enjoy your favorite craft beers and great food from a full menu, delivered to your table, while you watch the film!
We'll also have a pre-show that includes poster images and soundtrack music from horror films of years past, a specially selected set of trailers that will bring back some fond memories of horror classics, and some trivia for door prizes.
Doors open at 6:30pm, and Showtime is at 7:30, so arrive early to be sure you get a great seat, and have some pre-film conversation with fellow film fans!
