Double feature, showing with "Shaun of the Dead"

This screening is part of a double feature.  Shaun of the Dead will screen before Army of the Darkness both evenings.  The screening on Saturday, October 19th will begin at 9pm.

A man is accidentally transported to 1300 A.D., where he must battle an army of the dead and retrieve the Necronomicon so he can return home.

Downtown Riverside will be the hub of Halloween activities with an array of scary and fun events for young and old, especially the Saturday night Zombie Crawl. For this Halloween, Culver will present two nights of frightening and hilarious double features: two cinematic tales of the undead: 1992’s Army of Darkness and 2004’s Shaun of the Dead! We’re screening these Zombie flicks in collaboration with the Riverside Downtown Partnership at 7 pm on Friday and for Zombie aficionados—who want to howl at the full midnight moon—at 9 pm following the official Zombie Crawl on Saturday. These films will be shown in the Culver Atrium, so come in your most terrifying Zombie makeup.
