Fowin Cinema Rear entrance.jpg

This is the fire escape used to enter and exit the cinemafrom the roof.

Humans and zombies alike will see the following (permanent) description when standing outside the building:

"You are standing outside Fowin Cinema, a narrow concrete building with black crosses painted across its doors."

Such a description is always followed by a report of the building's condition (e.g. the level of its barricades), but since that report is never permanent and always subject to change, it is redundant to include it here as well.


November 7, 2007: The Fowin Cinema became the fourteenth destination of the VZW's Film Festival Tour of Malton. After evicting the undead occupants, repairing the damaged seating, cleaning up all the blood, turning the lights back on and heating up the old concession popcorn machine, the VZW presented the first ever showing of Nicholai and The Omega Zed. These films were shot on location in Malton.

Tour movie reviewers, Dr Mugwump and Luis Tully, provides these brief synopsis of Nicholai and The Omega Zed

The first film is Nicholai, a depressing, silent film found inside a TRON lunchbox hidden inside a dumpster behind Club Clatworthy. As far as we can tell, Nicholai Hel filmed himself doing mundane tasks such as looting the Nose Factory shop at Hildebrand Mall, clipping his toenails, and not answering his cell phone whenever his VZW comrades request his assistance to battle the walking dead. The screenings will be played with the soundtrack of Highlander on the speakers. Who waaaaants to live foreveerrrr..... Who waaaaants to live foreeeeveeeeeeerrr.... when Zeds must die.....

The second film, The Omega Zed, was originally filmed under the working title: I am Lame. It is a black and white, home-made movie, and possibly the very first and only film made by a zombie. On a lark, two pioneering Maltonian Film-makers bolted a video camera to a zombie named Zed Pirate Roberts. His apparent docility brought on by sucking the revive serum out of spent syringes. For the next week the camera was turned on for five minutes every hour and the resulting footage was...curiously compelling. The opening scene shows a vain Zed Pirate Roberts calmly staring at the flame scorched side of an abandoned ambulance. Some additional highlights include Zed Pirate Roberts staring at the inside of a refrigerator, staring at the pavement, staring at a wall, staring at a cell phone, and the belly buster of the movie; Zed Pirate Roberts staring at a reflection of himself staring - a clear reference to the famous scene from Taxi Driver...only without any words being spoken and no crazy mohawk and no young Jodie Foster.
