Focus 15, the initiative commemorating the founding 15 years ago of worldwide film company Focus Features, has partnered with Fandango, the leading digital network for all things movies, and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles for a special outdoor zombie screening of Shaun of the Dead the week of Halloween on Thursday, October 26, 2017. Directed by Edgar Wright and starring Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, Shaun of the Dead was the first film in The Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy, and was followed by Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.
Guests are encouraged to come in costume as their favorite Shaun of the Dead character. All attendees will receive a special Shaun of the Dead t-shirt while supplies last. Tickets go on sale today through Ticketmaster for $12 and can be purchased here.
Focus 15 kicked off last spring with a party at the Cannes International Film Festival, and continued over the summer with screenings around the world of classic Focus films. Fans have come together throughout the spring and summer to watch some of Focus Features’ most iconic titles including Beginners and Brick as part of the Rooftop Cinema Club open-air screenings, Milk with Academy Award® winning screenwriter Dustin Lance Black in London; Brokeback Mountain at Brooklyn’s Alamo Drafthouse Cinema; Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind at Gurney’s Montauk Resort; and Sin Nombre as part of an IndieWire screening with director Cary Fukunaga in New York, just to name a few.
Over the past 15 years, Focus Features movies have garnered 105 Academy Award nominations and won 21 Oscars.
The event is also part of Fandango’s multi-year partnership with The Greek, designed to create memorable experiences for movie fans throughout the year.
