Night of the Living Dead (1968) + Costume Contest

  • Gesa Power House Theatre 111 North 6th Avenue Walla Walla, WA, 99362 United States (map)

Too old for trick-or-treating? Still, love to dress up? Like horror films?

Gesa Power House Theatre will screen a classic horror film, followed by a costume contest and after party this Halloween.

George R. Romero’s 1968 film “Night of the Living Dead” is a cult classic credited with popularizing the concept of “zombies” as we think of them today. It was criticized at the time for its explicitly gory special effects and ushered in a new wave of “splatter” horror films. The film’s plot follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from flesh-eating monsters — the dead come back to life.

Costumes will be judged following the screening at approximately 8:45 p.m. Trophies and prizes will be awarded in the categories of Best Costume, Funniest, Most Original, and Sexiest. Anyone in costume will receive drink discounts all night.

Stay for an After Party at the Electric Lounge.
