After a successful Kickstarter campaign, A Theater Near You! released in February, 2023 via the Death Cult Press official store, Amazon.com and Apple Books. Our Kickstarter campaign was successfully funded by 40 backers pledging over $3,500 on an initial goal of $2,000. The book is available in both print and digital formats.

Death Cult Press and Image Ten are pleased to bring you the officially licensed new book: A Theater Near You! Advertising Night of the Living Dead.

Night of the Living Dead’s newspaper advertising campaign would go through many changes over the years as the film’s apparent public domain status became more widely known. Theaters and drive-ins would begin to concoct their own mash ups using bits and pieces of the original  ad campaign materials, and sometimes, completely new pieces of artwork. Over 1,100 of those ads from 1968 to the early 1980’s are collected here.

This Kickstarter campaign is in support of the premiere edition of this new book from Geoff Turner, author of Night of the Living Tapes. Available here are six exclusive tiers with all new perks, all officially licensed by Image Ten, the original producers of Night of the Living Dead.
