Lori Cardille and Day of the Dead

October 24, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:30pm
Frick Fine Arts Auditorium
 
As Halloween draws closer, join Pitt in Hollywood, Steeltown, and Film Studies for a screening of the late Pittsburgh legend George Romero’s Day of the Dead!
 
We will also welcome Lori Cardille, a Pittsburgh native and the star of George A. Romero’s landmark 1985 independent horror film Day of the Dead.  In addition to playing a feminist lead in one of Romero’s most haunting and ambitious films, Cardille is the daughter of legendary Pittsburgh radio and television personality Bill Cardille – well-known as TV host “Chilly Billy” on Chiller Theater from the 1960s through the 1980s.  Lori Cardille, in conversation with University of Pittsburgh professor of film studies Adam Lowenstein and the audience, will pay tribute to her father and to Romero, two icons of the Pittsburgh entertainment industry and pioneers of the region’s essential contributions to the horror genre.
 
The event is free and open to the public, and will take place from 7:00PM until 9:30PM on Tuesday October, 24th in the Frick Fine Arts auditorium across from Schenley Plaza.
