Romero Lives Film Series: There's Always Vanilla

October 15, 2019, 7:00pm, Regent Square Theater
There’s Always Vanilla - Introduced by producer Russell Streiner
The Romero Lives Film Series presents: A Celebration of Pittsburgh’s Horror Master, George A. Romero

 What if the world’s foremost horror filmmaker, who singlehandedly redefined the entire genre and invented of the modern zombie, made a romantic comedy? Romero’s interests were always much wider than the horror film would seem to permit, and for his follow-up to the world-shaking success that was Night of the Living Dead, he followed one of his non-undead muses towards a hilarious story of a shaky relationship between a model, played by Night’s Judith Ridley, and an artsy drifter. With a familiar sense of inventive, hilarious social critique, There’s Always Vanilla is a bittersweet viewing experience: a wonderful portrait of Romero and his collaborators’ artistic ambitions, but also a non-horror comedy filled with wit and invention that is surprisingly consistent with the rest of his oeuvre. An extremely rare opportunity to see There’s Always Vanilla on the big screen!
