Save the Zombie Chapel

In lieu of the review of Dawn of the Dead (which I have not been able to watch since Netflix has not allowed me to change my queue for over two weeks--but that's another story), here's a news update from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. The final remaining building featured in Night of the Living Dead (if you don't count the scene with the U.S. Capitol) is slated for demolition unless $50,000 can be raised to save it in the next year. Read the article here.

The plan for the restored chapel is to use it either as a museum or for zombie-themed events (weddings, graduation parties, etc.). To raise money, special events are being held across the country and organizers plan to sell various items through their web site. Right now all that is available is the poster on this page, but t-shirts and other items are in the works.

If you want to support the project or keep up to date, there's a Facebook group and the group's own web site.

h/t to Grandpa for the link to the story.
