The 1968 zombie classic “Night of the Living Dead” was shot, like much of director George A. Romero’s films, around Western Pennsylvania. In the film, Johnny and Barbara visit the Evans City Cemetery, located about 45 minutes north of Pittsburgh. They are seen driving up this entrance.
LOCATION: 8600 Franklin Rd, Evans City, PA 16033
They park in front of this chapel, which is located near the entrance of the cemetery. Most of the shots took place in this vicinity, making them fairly easy to locate once you enter.
The shots can of course be matched up by identifying the gravestones. Johnny and Barbara visit here and leave a cross.
A zombie approaches and attacks Johnny, as Barbara watches in horror from this gravestone.
