George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead"

A horde of hungry zombies advance on an isolated farmhouse filled with fearful strangers in George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead," released 50 years ago this month. 

The living dead will stumble through the darkened corners of Parks Plaza Theatre in Buellton when the Central Coast Film Society screens “Night of the Living Dead” on Wednesday, Oct. 24, as part of the 50th anniversary celebration of the iconic film’s release.

The event is dubbed “Beers and Brains,” as the film will be partly sponsored by Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co., and the price of a ticket will include a cup of Fig Mtn beer.

Attendees also will have a chance to hunt for zombies in virtual reality courtesy of Space VR, the Central Coast's only virtual reality arcade, or become zombies themselves.
