Independence Community College Theater Department in partnership with Independence Cinemas presents George A. Romero’s original 1968 Night of the Living Dead, at 7pm on the evening of October 4, followed by a talk-back with the cast and crew of Independence Community College’s production of Night of the Living Dead Live.
Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 horror film, directed by George A. Romero, starring Duane Jones and Judith O'Dea. The film has been a cult classic ever since its original release. Although Night of the Living Dead was heavily criticized at its release for its explicit gore, according to 1968 standards, the film eventually garnered critical acclaim and has been selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry, as a film deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".
Admission to the film is free, no tickets are required. The movie theater is located at 121 W Laurel St, Independence, Kansas.
The film is the basis for the theatrical production, Night of the Living Dead Live, opening October 6 in Independence Community College's William Inge Theater at 7pm. The play will run through the weekend with performances on Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 2pm.
Tickets for the play are available at the door of the William Inge Theater located on the main college campus of 1057 West College Ave in Indpendence, or online at http://icctheatre.brownpapertickets.com/
