You are no doubt familiar with and excited for AFI Dallas, which runs March 27 thru April 6. Lots of great flicks headed this-a-way for the festival. (Full disclosure: D is the magazine sponsor for AFI.) But the festivities start even before the festival does. As Big Bob pointed out, Landmark’s Inwood Theater has a special 40th anniversary screening of Night of the Living Dead next Thursday, Feb. 21, with George Romero in attendance. Romero is still making movies, of course. Today, he kindly asks the MTV kids to go out and see Diary of the Dead.
Update: An aware FrontBurnervian writes: “There’s also a cool zombie party tomorrow night at the Absinthe Lounge. Starts at 8 p.m. The art collective sponsoring it has dubbed the evening, “Night of the Loving Dead.”
