Own A Piece Of The Monroeville Mall!
Every horror fan recalls the iconic "Monroeville Mall" from George Romero's 1978 film "Dawn Of The Dead." Fans from everywhere have been lucky enough to visit the very place the movie was filmed. It's been on my list of things to do but, sadly, I've never gotten the chance. So you can imagine how stoked I was to discover that the Monroeville Zombies Museum, (Located in the Monroeville Mall up until April 27 2013), was offering the chance for horror fans to own an authentic piece of the Monroeville Mall. The 'artifacts' are offered at the affordable price of $19.99 per piece, with the exception of the exterior brick which carries a price tag of $59.99, which is totally within every collectors budget. They all come polybagged and include a Certificate Of Authenticity from the museums curator, Kevin A Kriess. HERE. Or from their eBay store, HERE. You can also visit their Facebook page HERE. They also have an IndieGogo page to help fund the newly relocated zombie museum, you can visit that HERE.
I have include some photo's, as well as the info given, below.
From the ebay page:
Over the years, the mall has had several remodels that have changed its look, but the one constant that has not ever changed to date, is the vintage French Marble columns and wall segments that separate the stores. These marble walls are seen in every interior shot in "Dawn of the Dead". It is very rare that one of the marble slabs are decommisioned, as they are not replaceable as the marble cuts and patterns cannot ever be matched, so they are all reserved and salvaged for reuse during every remodel. Monroeville Zombies have acquired only one segment of this rare marble that was in use in the mall during a remodel that resulted in a broken slab. Smaller pieces of this broken slab have been salvaged as collectible artifacts. Included here is a fragment of this marble slab.
