FlickIt! presents DAWN OF THE DEAD
George A. Romero’s second zombie flick came about with a little help from Dario Argento. As hordes of zombies swarm over the U.S., the terrified populace tries everything in their power to escape the attack of the undead, but neither cities nor the countryside prove safe. In Pennsylvania, radio-station employee Stephen (David Emge) and his girlfriend, Francine (Gaylen Ross), escape in the station helicopter, accompanied by two renegade SWAT members, Roger and Pete. The group retreats to the haven of a deserted shopping mall to make what could be humanity’s last stand. There’s a lot of allegory and hidden meaning around, but Tom Savini’s excellent (and unremittingly gruesome) special effects take center stage throughout. (1978, R, 156mins)
This event is a benefit for the Selden Market and their fabulous programs to help small, local businesses establish themselves and thrive in today’s market.

The festivities kick off at 6:00pm at Selden Market. Get some Holiday Shopping in at the area’s best small businesses. All shops will be open with great specials just for you.
In addition, we’ve got lots of fun activities planned:

AND at 8:00pm, a ZOMBIE BIKE RIDE to the Naro Cinema led by Social Cycling Norfolk.
