Dawn of the Dead – Romero Screening

The Alamo Drafthouse had their biggest event ever weekend over Halloween as 700 attendees piled onto buses and were escorted by police to the Highland Mall in Austin Texas for their ninth mystery screening: George Romero‘s Dawn of the Dead. When the buses pulled in, 200 zombies attacked them, forcing the film goers to race into the mall to watch the movie. There the director introduced his  1978 masterpiece which was accompanied by an awesome, limited edition poster by Jeff Proctor.

It was an event that won’t soon be forgotten and, you  can see the poster, photos and videos from the event. What better way to start off Halloween? I wish I could have been there.

All of these photos were taken by Arnold Wells and Jack Plunkett.

And then there’s video thanks to Arts & Labor.

The first one is the edit of the entire evening.
