FRIDAY NIGHT: The ScareHouse Moonlit Matinee Film Festival at The Oaks presents a rare 35mm screening of George A. Romero's DAY OF THE DEAD (filmed right here in Pittsburgh.)
DAY OF THE DEAD is the third and concluding chapter in George Romero's zombie trilogy. Set in Florida, as the film begins the dead have taken over the world, outnumbering humans 400,000 to one. A handful of surviving humans have taken refuge in an underground missile silo: Sarah (Lori Cardille) -- a scientist who is trying to reverse the process whereby the dead turn into flesh-eating, irrational zombies -- and Dr. Logan (Richard Liberty) -- an out-of-his-mind psychologist who wants to capture the zombies and turn them into domestic help. Things heat up when the military tries to take over the scientific experiments.
This is an extremely rare 35mm print screening of the film, and the final film on the 9th annual Moonlit Matinee Film Festival.
Before the film, cast and crew members reunite on stage for an extended Q & A with local zombie fans. Plus, a chance to win Pittsburgh Zombies merchandise from ScareHouse AND a chance to purchase the limited edition poster from Screaming Brain Studios.
If you miss Friday's screening, you can also catch a screening of DAY OF THE DEAD at the Oaks on Saturday at midnight - right after the 7:30 screening of the Graphnation Film Festival. Click here for more information about this wild collection of short films, both live action and animated.
The Oaks Theater, a gloriously refurbished 430-seat single-screen movie house, presents the best in current, classic, and non-traditional cinema entertainment.
SATURDAY: Are you ready for a double-header or roller derby action? The Steel City Derby Demons, sponsored by The ScareHouse, offer a pair of exciting bouts for you this weekend. The Steel Hurtin’ will be playing the Cincinnati Black Sheep and the B-Unit will be playing the Cincinnati Silent Lambs. This game excites us, folks. The Hurtin’ and the Black Sheep have met twice before. The Sheep beat us first, and the second time, we were the victorious ones. This game will be extremely physical as both of these teams are very evenly matched in skill level and intensity. Come on down to Romp n’ Roll, you won’t regret it!
Door open at 6:30 - the action starts at 7pm! Come to the Romp n Roll Skating rink, 1661 E. Sutter Rd, Glenshaw PA 15116
