Greetings Zombies! To those who have survived 2020 so far, we salute you!

We’ve been working for months to figure a socially distant way to bring our undead hoarde together and we have found it! The NYC Zombie Crawl has teamed up the legendary Bel Aire Diner and Troma Entertainment, the oldest indie movie studio in the world to bring retro horror and some of director Lloyd Kaufman‘s finest work to the public all October in Queens NY! And we are also hosting a canned food drive with the Food Bank for NYC at the same time with #MUTANTSFORHUNGER!

Starting Oct. 9th, blow off some quarantine steam with a month long monster mash of Frightening Flicks and spooky surprises from the creators of cult movies like The Toxic Avenger, Sgt Kabukiman NYPD and Class of Nuke Em High! See Troma horror classics and some of the first films from James Gunn (TROMEO AND JULIETGuardians of the Galaxy, The Suicide Squad), Trey Parker & Matt Stone (CANNIBAL! THE MUSICAL, South Park), Samuel L. Jackson (DEF BY TEMPTATION, Pulp Fiction) and many more!

Have a spooktacular good time with dinner and a movie at the Bel Aire Drive-In and Diner! Get out of the house and have some socially distant fun with tricks, treats and tickets in advance at www.BelAireDiner.nyc !

We are also working to provide help to New Yorkers in need, with a Canned Food Drive for the homeless. The Bel Aire Diner is hosting a donation drop box for the Food Bank of NYC where you can donate canned food 24 hours a day – every single day in October!

Also, when you donate canned goods during any screening event you can get a $1 beer from Pabst Blue Ribbon or shot of Sailor Jerry Rum, or a free can of water from Liquid Death Mountain Water! Before you visit the Bel Aire next time, grab a few cans of food from your cabinet or from the store and donate! Every little bit helps! And you’ll be rewarded with booze!

On October 9th and 10th the NYC Zombie Crawl will present a Zombie Carnival Midway with socially distant carnival games for prizes & more surprises! We will also host a Zombie Costume Contest each night and award prizes for the best and bloodiest costumes – all costumes are encouraged, zombie or otherwise!
