Intu Merry Hill Front On.jpg


On Sunday 27th October Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema took over the Intu Merry Hill with a special zombie-filled screening of Dawn of the Dead in the heart of the abandoned shopping centre.

Y'know, back when pandemics were really funny...

"A long piece I made for an immersive cinema experience put on by Friendly Neighbourhood Cinema. This played over the P.A. as punters made their way to the cinema screen through an abandoned zombie infested shopping mall. The Merry Hill centre in the Black Country. The movie was Zack Snyder's interpretation of Dawn of The Dead" - Adam Lamb


"As a massive fan of everything Zombies, watching Dawn of the Dead in an abandoned shopping mall was the best money I have spent all year! Such good value for a unique experience, the zombies really played along and a great evening was had by all. 5 stars"
Katie Facebook

"Seeing Dawn of the Dead in a zombie-infested shopping mall was a twisted dream come true. A truly unforgettable experience."
