The Living Dead Weekend: Evans City, PANIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD 50TH ANNIVERSARY
This October's LIVING DEAD WEEKEND will be focused entirely on the celebration of the 50th Anniversary of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD, the film that started it all, the film that created the genre and gave us zombies and living dead. Without it we would all be very different people. The celebration will spread from Evans City where it was filmed to Pittsburgh where the film was conceived, produced and premiered.
The focus of the weekend will be the Saturday Night Image Ten 50th Anniversary show and screening in Pittsburgh's Byham Theater, the very same theater where the film had its world premiere 50 years ago, almost to the exact date.
Our celebrity guests will be both in Evans City and in Pittsburgh at the theater. We will have location tours and vendors and all the things you've some to expect in EC, with the bonus Saturday Night Pittsburgh Gala which will be unlike anything you have ever seen (think Hollywood). You will have to wait a bit longer for those details from Image Ten, but meanwhile we will begin to announce our NOTLD Celebrity Guests and other EC events.
