The Sebastiani Theatre presents “Birth of the Living Dead,” a new documentary, showing how George A. Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburgh residents including police officers, iron workers, teachers, ad men, housewives and a roller-rink owner to shoot, with a revolutionary guerrilla, run-and-gun style, his seminal film.
The documentary was directed by Rob Kuhns and stars Larry Fessenden, Mark Harris, Gale Anne Hurd, Elvis Mitchell, Samuel D. Pollard and George A. Romero.
During that process Romero and his team created an entirely new and horribly chilling monster – one that was undead and feasted upon human flesh. This award-winning documentary about the making of the cult film “Night of the Living Dead,” will screen at the Sebastiani Theatre for one show only on Monday, Jan. 6. There will be a wine and cheese reception at 6:30 p.m. with the screening of the documentary at 7 p.m. A question-and-answer session with co-producer Ester Cassidy will follow the film.
The Sebastiani Theatre is located on the Plaza in downtown Sonoma at 476 First St. E. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased in advance at brownpapertickets.com online or at the door.
