ROMERO LIVES!


TOLIN FX HALLOWEEN BASH!

A CELEBRATION OF PITTSBURGH’S ROMERO LIVES!

Tolin FX is proud to be a part of Pittsburgh’s citywide celebration of the life and work of our local hero, legendary and visionary filmmaker George A. Romero.

Many businesses and organizations throughout the city are participating in the festivities in their own way, through film screenings and other special events. All of which can be found at romerolives.org.

For our part, Tolin FX is going to throw a Halloween block party at Tolin FX in honor of the horror icon, in Pittsburgh’s Beechview neighborhood. The Halloween Bash party will celebrate George, Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh’s vibrant film community, horror & zombies, Halloween, and Dia de los Muertos.

SCHEDULE OF EVENTS

ROMERO STATUE & THE ROMERO CREW

We’re lucky to be friends with some of the awesome cast and crew that hung with George and helped to create his films. Many of them will join us at 8p to unveil a tribute bust statue being sculpted by Tolin FX sculptor and General Manager, Kyle Roberts. We’ve also had the blessing of a visit and continued correspondence with Suzanne Desrocher Romero, as she has helped Kyle really nail George’s essence.


DOUG BRADLEY

We will be honored with a visit by our pal Doug Bradley at 7p, for a staged reading from his awesome Spinechiller Series. He will be reading the works of Edgar Allan Poe, H.P. Lovecraft, and others. Free to all.

Learn more about how awesome Doug is and check out his Spinechiller series, on his website (which we made for him) at dougbradley.com
