Are you ready for a spooky night? Do you love zombies? Cerrito Classics has the movie for you, shown at the Halloween-appropriate time of 9:30PM.
Night of the Living Dead is a low-budget, black-and-white movie, with unknown actors, about a group of people stranded in a farmhouse, desperately trying to keep out hungry zombies who are trying to get in.
Why has Night of the Living Dead become a cult classic?
Here’s what John Soltes from hollywoodsoapbox.com says:
“The influence of this movie is monumental. Think about it: Night of the Living Dead is one of the first movies to feature the idea of a modern zombie (slow-walking, hands extended). It introduces the monster in the first few minutes and then continues on with the other characters’ story arcs (think of Jaws). It uses sound and creative camera angles to add another dimension to the proceedings.
Night of the Living Dead has earned its status as a classic. Its simple premise will still make you fear the things that go bump in the night.”
Night of the Living Dead plays once only on Thursday, October 8 at 9:30PM. All seats are $8.50. Moviegoers are advised to get advance tickets at the box office or online, as shows may sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
