Cancelled: Night of the Living Dead 10.31.22 @6:30 pm

Unfortunately the Halloween showing of Night of the Living Dead has been cancelled. Hopefully it can rise again in another form in the future.

We’re coming to get you…Malden. Join us on the front lawn on Monday 10.31.22 (Halloween) at 6:30 pm to see the restored Zombie classic: “Night of the Living Dead”. We have a blow up screen, a bowl of candy, and prizes for your best costumes. Bring a blanket and a chair and settle in for the unsettling. We’ll start early so you still have time to haunt the downtown in all your ghoulish glory.
