SYLMAR, CA – Get your Zombie costume on and join the San Fernando Valley Historical Society on Saturday, Oct. 29, to see George Romero’s 1968 classic zombie horror movie “Night of the Living Dead” coupled with either a twilight tombstone tour or midnight graveyard ghost hunt at the historic San Fernando Pioneer Memorial Cemetery in Sylmar.

Sponsored for one night only by the San Fernando Valley Historical Society, a twilight tombstone tour and movie showing begins at 7 p.m. and concludes at 9:30 p.m. There is a $10 admission charge for all ages. 

A second showing of the movie begins at 10 p.m., followed by a graveyard tour around midnight. The tour will include door prize drawings and a real ghost hunt with guest paranormal investigator Erik Vanlier of the Valley Investigators of the Paranormal. See first-hand what lurks in the cemetery after dark. There is a $20 admission charge for all ages.

 Anyone who comes in zombie costume (and zombie costume only) will get $5 off their admission donation to either tour.

The admission fees go toward landscape restoration and shade trees in the San Fernando Valley’s second oldest cemetery, established in 1874.

Bring chairs, blankets and flashlights.

The Pioneer Cemetery is located at 14451 Bledsoe St., at Foothill Boulevard, in Sylmar. Refreshments will be available for purchase, cash only. Limited street parking so carpooling is advised. The 90-minute movie is rated R (violence, language and nudity) and may not be suitable for young children. This is an outdoor event and will be cancelled in case of rain.
