#RomeroWasHere is a scavenger hunt inspired by George Romero that requires you, the competitor, to visit a number of his movie set locations in Pittsburgh and Western PA. Not only did George Romero make Pittsburgh his home city to live in, but he also filmed many of his movies here and in the surrounding counties. We want you to go and explore those places!
Start: September 13 at Noon
Finish: October 12th at 5pm
(Facebook only allows an event to be scheduled for 2 weeks, so ignore the end date listed there!)
***Make sure you read them all***
HOW does it work???
We will provide you with a list of the locations and bonus point tasks for you to complete. You MUST take a photo at EVERY location and for each bonus point task you choose to do. Post you photos on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #RomeroWasHere and tag Row House Cinema in the post to be sure that we see it! (If you want to be extra helpful for our scavenger hunt tracker, tag your location or write in the comments where you are.) The final winner will be determined by total point value earned by visiting each location and doing bonus point tasks. More info on locations, bonus point tasks, and point amounts coming soon!
WHO can participate???
Anyone!!! Fan of Goerge Romero or not, scavenger hunts are fun! You can play alone or on a team up to 5 people. Teams must ALL be in EVERY picture and have ONE designated account posting the photos to qualify. (Might be time to invest in that selfie stick you’ve had your eyes on!)
