It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Zombies
Second annual Zombie Holiday Party at Time & Space Toys on December 13
Admission is free and the party will feature:
• Photos with Zombie Santa – photo package available at the store for $10
• Tours of the Monroeville Zombies themed attraction
• Living Dead Experience motion simulator ride – ride tokens available in the store for $3
• Appearance by Leonard Lies – “Machete Zombie” in the original Dawn of the Dead
• Zombie movie trivia contest

Zombie party goers will have an opportunity to check out the store’s newly remodeled Monroeville Zombies exhibit, which is a celebration of Zombies in Pop Culture. Located in the historic Monroeville Mall, site of the original film, George A. Romero's Dawn of the Dead, the themed attraction takes fans through a visual history of zombies in cinema.
Displays of movie props and memorabilia are woven into a presentation featuring interactive experiences and zombie gift shopping. The exhibit includes a Zombie Gallery, a model exhibit of Monroeville Mall circa 1978 and a walkthrough of a boiler room mock-up complete with life-sized zombies.
Leonard Lies, who played the iconic “Machete Zombie” in the original Dawn of the Dead which was filmed at the mall in 1978, will be inducted into the new “Maul of Fame” during the party. The Maul of Fame is where zombie film celebrities are immortalized in the tradition of Hollywood Boulevard, but with a zombie twist by leaving "bloody" handprints on the Maul of Fame wall.
The store also carries a wide variety of unique toys and collectibles rooted in pop culture, from classic television shows to modern hits.
Both zombies and humans are welcome to attend. The event is open to all ages, although some of the zombie exhibits (in a separate location in the back of the store) may not be suitable for young children.
