Attendees are encouraged to dress as favorite character for outdoor event
It was announced Friday that the 2004 horror-comedy classic Shaun of the Dead will screen outdoors at Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on Oct. 26. Attendees are encouraged to come in costume as their favorite Shaun of the Dead character and will receive a special Shaun of the Dead T-shirt while supplies last.
Tickets go on sale Friday through Ticketmaster for $12.
Directed by Baby Driver filmmaker Edgar Wright, Shaun of the Dead stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost as a pair of pub-loving Londoners, Shaun and Ed, who wake up after a night of heavy drinking to belatedly discover the zombie apocalypse has begun. Kate Ashfield plays Shaun’s girlfriend Liz while Penelope Wilton and Billy Nighy portray his mother and stepfather. Shaun of the Dead is the first film in the so-called “Cornetto trilogy,” which would be continued with 2007’s Hot Fuzz and 2013’s The World’s End. All were directed by Wright, written by Wright and Pegg, starred Pegg and Frost, produced by Nira Park, and featured the ice cream which leant the trilogy its name.
The outdoor screening is the result of a partnership between Fandango and Focus 15, the initiative commemorating the founding 15 years ago of Focus Features, and of the multi-year partnership between Fandango and The Greek, designed to create memorable experiences for movie fans throughout the year.
