Too old for trick-or-treating? Still love to dress up? Like horror films?
Gesa Power House Theatre will screen a classic horror film, followed by a costume contest and after party this Halloween, Tuesday, October 31 starting at 7:00 p.m.
George R. Romero’s 1968 film “Night of the Living Dead” is a cult classic credited with popularizing the concept of “zombies” as we think of them today. It was criticized at the time for its explicitly gory special effects, and ushered in a new wave of “splatter” horror films. The film’s plot follows a group of characters who barricade themselves in an old farmhouse in an attempt to remain safe from flesh eating monsters – the dead come back to life.
Contestants for the costume contest are encouraged to show up by 6:30 p.m. to give the judges more time to evaluate their costumes. Fun photo opportunities will be available at several “selfie stations” set up around the theater. Following the film screening (at approximately 8:45 p.m.), trophies and prizes will be awarded in the categories of Best Costume, Funniest, Most Creative and Sexiest.
Stay for an After Party in the Electric Lounge hosted by Chardonnay (Jimmy Vaughan). Anyone in costume will receive drink discounts all night.
General admission tickets ($13) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500.
