Just saw this in the news and thought it belonged here....
EVANS CITY, Pa. (AP) — Horror movie fans are trying to save a southwestern Pennsylvania cemetery chapel featured in several scenes of the cult classic "Night of the Living Dead."
A sound engineer who worked on the 1968 George Romero film is trying to raise $50,000 to repair the chapel at Evans City Cemetery.
The cemetery association had planned to tear down boarded-up building but delayed those plans to see if Gary Streiner can come up with the money.
Cemetery association President Ron Volz tells the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette the building will have to come down if the fundraising effort falls short. Streiner has raised about $7,000 so far.
Streiner says he hopes the chapel could be used as a movie museum or rented out for events, like zombie-themed weddings.
Yeah I have heard about this. If you ask me, the real crying shame behind this whole story is that it could have easily been taken care of by now. My understanding is that they are trying to raise around $50k to save the chapel. A big-shot like George Romero could peel off a check for that much without breaking a sweat. I can't imagine he doesn't know about it. The question is why hasn't he pitched in to help?
Now you're on your own.
I guess that once he was finished using Pittsburgh to film his movies, he forgot all about it. Out of site, out of mind.
