Tolin FX Halloween Bash!

Larger than life sized sculpture of the face of George Romero in a bronze-paint finish.



Who, you may ask?

PARTY PEOPLE, that’s who!

Attention Revelers and revenants ready to celebrate everyone’s favorite holiday, Halloween! Tolin FX invites you to come celebrate Halloween zombie style as we honor the life of George Romero at our studio in Beechview! We had so much fun last year that we decided to do it again! Fun for all ages during Trick or Treating, with treats, games, and prizes. Then after 8PM the fun continues with an adults-only celebration featuring artists, Tarot readings, wrestling and more!

Stop by and take a selfie with the giant bust of George Romero sculpted by artist Kyle Roberts! Tour our working special effects studio and see what we’ve been working on since last Halloween. We’ve planned a rowdy wrestling match, Tarot readings, local artists and vendors, and more. Lots of activities for kids, and easily accessed by the Red Line (Belasco or Hampshire stops on the T.) Try out some of our neighborhood eating spots while you’re here, or grab a bite at one of the food trucks on site.

Admission is free and open to the public! Costumes not required but are of course STRONGLY ENCOURAGED (I mean come on, Halloween at a special effects shop.)

Behold the deets:
