The Pittsburgh Premiere of George A. Romero’s “Land of the Dead” will be held at the Byham Theatre on June 22, just blocks from where the world’s first movie theater opened across from Kaufmann’s one hundred years ago.
George A. Romero’s “Land of the Dead” is the acclaimed director’s long-awaited return to the horror genre he invented, beginning with the seminal Night of the Living Dead. In this new tale, Romero creates a harrowing vision of a modern-day world where the walking dead roam an uninhabited wasteland and the living try to lead “normal” lives behind the walls of a fortified city. But outside the city walls, an army of the dead is evolving. Anarchy is on the rise. With the very survival of the city at stake, a group of hardened mercenaries is called into action to protect the living from the army of the dead. This film will open nationwide June 24th.
