Save the Dawn of the Dead Bridge!

785166-1430498859-wideIn 1978, George Romero’s Dawn of the Dead forever changed the face of horror. DOTD is not only an entertaining horror flick, it’s a deep social commentary co-mingled with drama and action that still holds relevant even today.

Monroeville Mall, where a large portion of the film takes place, has since changed dramatically. One of the few staples that still remains from Dawn of the Dead, the bridge, is due to be demolished and scrapped in just a matter of days. It’s not been disclosed to us what day that will be, so the need to act fast is of the utmost importance.

As the situation currently stands, the removal is already set in motion. If the bridge is demolished, it will then become property of the demolition company. It may be re-purposed or simply tossed out.

If we can garner enough signatures, we would like to house the bridge in a facility where fans can continue to visit it for years to come. Kevin Kriess has agreed to make it a permanent part of The Living Dead Museum in Evans City, PA. Our goal is for the demolition company to take it apart with care and turn it over to the Living Dead Museum to be reassembled.

If we want to save the bridge from being destroyed forever, please
