This Halloween, United Palace is ground zero for the zombie apocalypse. Guests can have a zombie makeover at our transformation station and partake in the annual costume parade across the Palace stage. Then we will screen Cuba’s first zombie movie, a horror-comedy hybrid, with more than a touch of political allegory. Finally, our zombie panel will discuss the role of zombies in the movie and contemporary life.
