Night of the Living Dead

“They’re coming to get you… Barbara, there’s one of them now!”

Raise a glass and tip your hat while we dim the lights and fire up the projector in honour of the late, great George Romero with a Friday Late Night Movie viewing of his landmark 1968 “zombie horror apocalypse” thriller NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD.
