This Friday Night! 

The ScareHouse presents a tribute to Pittsburgh’s Living Dead Legacy at The Senator John Heinz History Center.

The 1968 cult classic, Night of the Living Dead, was filmed in and around Pittsburgh by the “Godfather of Zombies” George A. Romero, and celebrates its 45th anniversary this year. We’re celebrating by infesting the history center with flesh-eating zombies!


  • 5 – 7 pm: Behind-the-scenes tours of the History Center’s new exhibition, 1968: The Year That Rocked America
  • 7 pm: The winners of the inaugural Pittsburgh’s Best Zombie Contest will be crowned the Zombie King and Queen of Pittsburgh, and will each receive a prize package including a ScareHouse prize coffin with two RIP passes to The ScareHouse 2013, and merchandise from House of the Dead, Pittsburgh’s premier zombie store.
  • A rare screening of Night of The Living Dead! Frightfully fun snacks and refreshments, including alcoholic beverages, popcorn, and retro candy, will be available for purchase.


The “Night of the Living Dead” screening and Pittsburgh’s Best Zombie Contest are free with regular museum admission of $15.

Join us for the 45th Anniversary Night of the Living Dead screening and Pittsburgh’s Best Zombie Contest on Friday, Feb. 22, from 5 – 10 p.m.
