In honor of the film’s 50th Anniversary, Albacon will be doing a special presentation of The Night of the Living Dead with a panel discussion and a showing of the movie (on film, not video). See the classic the way it was intended to see!
The zombies begin to shamble on Saturday night starting at 7 pm.
Some of the planned films can be found under the “Movie Program” tab. They include “Valley of the Gwangi,” “Dr. Cyclops,” and “The Phantom Creeps.” All in 16mm film!
