LAist breathed a sigh of relief this morning upon waking to face this most glorious Friday. And Friday the 13th, no less! In honor of the occasion, we're leading off with the most appropriate of events. Read on for details.

At the Egyptian Theatre, witness the awesome power of the Living Dead Double Header. The show begins at 9:15 PM and features George Romero's 1968 zombie classic Night of the Living Dead, followed by Gary Sherman's 1972 debut feature Death Line (aka Raw Meat). This is a great opportunity to see the ultimate zombie film on the big screen—and need LAist remind you that it is Friday the 13th?

At the ArcLight, meet screenwriter Larry Gross—writer of We Don't Live Here Anymore—after the film screens at 7:30 PM and 10:30 PM tonight, tomorrow and Sunday.
