You never know when the next zombie apocalypse will occur, but there’s a good chance you’ll find an uprising of the undead at the Stateside at the Paramount Theatre on Jan. 26.

That’s when the theater is hosting a “Shaun of the Dead” pub run and screening starting.

The British horror comedy film “Shaun” follows the trials of a man trying to juggle life with his girlfriend, mother and stepfather while coping with an apocalyptic zombie uprising. And that’s a lot by anyone’s standards, don’t you think?

The run starts at 6 p.m., followed by the film at 7:45 p.m. Tickets are $20 and include locally-brewed beer and a special gift. Or pay just $10 for the movie only. Proceeds will benefit the Paramount and Stateside Theatres.

The run will start at the theater, at 713 Congress Avenue, and head south to the parking lot of the Austin American-Statesman, just south of the river.

Live Oak Brewing will provide beer, and Dead Music Capital Band will play live music. Texas Chili Queens and Wünder Pig Barbecue Co. will sell food from their trucks.

Costumes are encouraged. The five best will receive free entry into the 2016 Paramount Break-A-Leg 5K on Feb. 14, plus two free film passes to the Paramount & Stateside Theatres.

Get tickets here.
