Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Happenings@ Merrion Square
  • Fri 30 Sep

We're getting you into a spooooky mood early this year.

A disparate group of individuals takes refuge in an abandoned house when corpses begin to leave the graveyard in search of fresh human bodies to devour. The pragmatic Ben (Duane Jones) does his best to control the situation, but when the reanimated bodies surround the house, the other survivors begin to panic. As any semblance of order within the group begins to dissipate, the zombies start to find ways inside -- and one by one, the living humans become the prey of the deceased ones.

This Special Screening will have a live musical accompaniment of a new score by Stephen Shannon & Matthew Nolan.

Grab your gang and join us in Merrion Square, we'll have vendors on the day to supply you with grub and all you need for an experience that will haunt you. Doors will be at 6.30pm and the show kicks off when it's all dark and scary.

As this is an outdoor event, please remember to bring anything you need to make sure you stay comfy and cosy throughout the evening.

Here at Happenings we loooove to be environmentally friendly and strive to make all our events as sustainable as possible. In that regard, we highly encourage all our smashing Happenistas to arrive by bike or public transport. Merrion Square is very well catered for with buses and the Green Line Luas is within very easy walking distance.

Finally, we'd be very appreciative if you left no trace, we will have general and recycling bins on site to pop any rubbish into during and after the event.


The dead come back to life and eat the living. Several people barricade themselves inside a rural house in an attempt to survive the night. Outside are hordes of relentless, shambling zombies who can only be killed by a blow to the head.
