Cleveland Zombie Ball Set For Oct. 25

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

Cleveland-based radio show Lights Camera Cleveland will host the first annual Zombie Ball at The Venue Creekside on Friday, Oct. 25, at 8 p.m. 

The event will feature a viewing of the 1968 George Romero classic film Night of the Living Dead, as well as a zombie costume contest, monster mash couples dance competition, photo booth by Nathan Ball Photography, cash bar, and giveaways and prizes. Tickets for this 18-and-older event are $10, or $15 per couple, and may be purchased online at lightscameracleveland.com.  

During the film screening, which begins at 9 p.m., attendees will have the opportunity to watch the movie on The Venue’s big screen, while trivia and film facts are projected simultaneously on smaller screens in the auditorium, providing a second-screen experience.  

Award-winning radio personalities Rob Alderman and Ryan “Hollywood Slinky” Faricelli, along with co-hosts Carie “AMC Mike” Varner-Faricelli and Kenny “Ken Dog” Alderman, bring Lights Camera Cleveland to the airwaves every Monday from 6-8 p.m. on The Woop 99.9 FM. All four hosts will greet fans and lead the movie screening at the Zombie Ball.  

“As lovers of film, it’s so awesome to be able to offer a fun evening where folks can watch a classic movie normally not available on a big screen,” said Mr. Faricelli. “Being able to provide a film education experience in real time with the movie makes it even more rewarding.” 

“Watching movies with a group at a full theater or in a special screening such as this brings an excitement and energy to the experience that can’t be matched,” said Mr. Alderman. “The Zombie Ball is going to be a night to remember.” 

“I’m incredibly proud of how Lights Camera Cleveland has been embraced by our community,” added Mr. Faricelli. “Moving from a podcast, to television and radio, and now holding our own film event, we’re very blessed to be able to share our love of movies and the Hollywood industry with the city we call home.” 

Lights Camera Cleveland began as a hyper-local podcast and has grown to include more than 1,100 weekly listeners. As film critics, Mr. Alderman and Mr. Farcielli have served as hosts of the Friday morning edition of local television show Tennessee Valley This Morning; they have been featured as guests or hosts at various community events focused on pop culture, comic books, gaming and film; and their current radio call-in show can be streamed live at www.WoopFM.com, with archived episodes available at lightscameracleveland.com

The Venue Creekside is located in the old theater at The Village Green Town Center, The Venue Creekside hosts up to 295 attendees for receptions, trade shows, meetings, concerts and private parties, with production-quality multimedia including multi-wall projection, effect lighting and sound.
