Just in time for Halloween, we’re teaming up with Mother’s Brewing to screen the cult classic “Shaun of the Dead” in Mother’s Backyard! (215 South Grant Ave.) So bring your blankets and/or lawn chairs to ensure you are comfy during the movie. Better yet, bring your picnic fixins so you can dine outside while watching a great movie! You can’t bring booze, but don’t worry, Mother’s has you covered on that. They will have beer flowing outside so you don’t even have to go inside for a refill during the movie! This is a 21+ event. Tickets are $5 and on sale at the door. Try to bring cash!

This “rom zom com” (romantic zombie comedy) follows the bloody funny adventures of underachiever Shaun (Pegg) and his best mate Ed (Frost) as they cope with a zombie invasion of North London and attempt to rescue Shaun’s girlfriend Liz (Ashfield) and his Mum (Wilton). It’s going to be one hell of a weekend. (Rogue Pictures)

"Remarkably fresh and inventive."
- Carla Mayer, San Francisco Chronicle
"The most original comedy from either side of the pond in years."
- Mark Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"A gleefully gory, pitch-perfect parody of George Romero's zombie films. But this isn't a movie about other movies. Shaun of the Dead stands on its own."
- Robert K. Elder, Chicago Tribune
