'Living Dead' to Help Save Hollywood Theater

A "Night of the Living Dead" screening and meet-and-greet with the cast will help raise money for Dormont's Hollywood Theater.

A special screening of George Romero's 1968 film "Night of the Living Dead," plus a meet-and-greet with the cast, will help Dormont's Hollywood Theater raise much-needed funds for a digital projector, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Information about the event can be found in the paper's staff blogs section, in a post by Barbara Vancheri. Click the blue link to read the full report.

The March 2 event starts at 2 p.m. and will feature a meet-and-greet with celebrity guests Kyra Schon, Russ Streiner, George Kosana, Joe Unitas, Ella Mae Smith, Paula Richards, and Gary Streiner.

All proceeds from the event will go to Hollywood Theater's Go Digital or Go Dark Campaign.

The theater must purchase a digital film projector at a cost of $75,000, including expenses for electrical updates, or it risks closing again, possibly for good. Click here for information about the Go Digital or Go Dark Campaign.

To donate now, see the Indiegogo—Hollywood Theater website.
