The Night of the Living Dead, filmed on a shoestring budget, marked the beginning of the zombie genre. It was also a commentary on the times, coming as it did during the Vietnam war, when tensions in America were at an all-time high. Released in October 1968, the black & white film is not rated but isn't recommended for audience members under the age of 16. Run time is 1 hour and 36 minutes.

We'll be screening this movie for a select audience, with a very limited number of seats available. In keeping with Washington State's Safe Start reopening plan, a number of precautions must be followed.* If you're interested, please purchase your ticket(s) online as soon as you can.
Tickets, $15 per adult, are at https://nightoflivingdead.bpt.me

A Classic Horror Film That Makes You Think
Night of the Living Dead, directed by horror master George A. Romero, is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time. Its a deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls. Romero's vision is of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart. He rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role.

Stark, haunting, and more relevant than ever, Night of the Living Dead lives on. If you can get past the blood and gore (yikes!), this movie will make you think!
