In their latest big screen movie night - in partnership with Flatpack Projects - the classic horror film is visiting Dudley Castle this August!
Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is often cited as being one of the most influential horror films of all time, following a group of desperate civilians who fight to avoid death at the hands of flesh-eating zombies...when the dead suddenly come back to life!
And what better setting for this film than the grounds of Dudley Castle? With the audience sat amongst the castle ruins, their ankles dangerously close to the ground where zombies could quite easily burst forth at any moment!
This screening, on Friday 3rd August, is part of the third instalment of ‘Beware the Moon’ in partnership with Flatpack Projects, a yearly screening event that turns Dudley Castle into an open air cinema for your delight and enjoyment. There will be hot food, a licensed bar, mood-lighting and special effects - and as always a surprise or two thrown in for good measure. Don’t forget to bring along a chair and blanket.
Tickets are priced at £10 (£8 for concessions) or a double bill ticket deal is £18 (£14 for concessions). Doors open at 7:00pm with warm up films from 9:00pm and Night of the Living Dead showing at 9:30pm.
Book your tickets online or by calling 01384 215313. There may be some tickets available on the door at a flat rate of £15 each (cash only).
