Early Huntington showings of RHPS did not have an organized interactive cast, but the Bic's flickered and the Time Warp jammed mostly in front of the screen, rather than in the aisles.
Romaro's "Dawn of the Dead" would have been a midnight movie candidate as its initial "X" for violence rating. The bloody zombie bite-a-thon where the "dead" trample a Pennsylvania shopping mall brought graphic displays (later re-rated to R) and intense urban survival among fully stocked shops that gave survivors a choice of hot outfits. Ironically, the mall desolation scenes foreshadowed 21st Century urban decay caught up with the over-malling of America.
Those attending this 16mm showing should dress both for the season and weather. The "wall" screen provides a dim, moody, and macabre venue.
