WHEN ZOMBIES ATTACK! (also titled: Having an Old Friend for Dinner)


PLOT SUMMARY:
The Undead terrorize geocachers in historic Palo Alto.
OPENING SCENE:
(Voice of Announcer): It is of great fear that we must report Zombies are roaming the streets. You may not be safe in your own home - as Zombies are everywhere. How do you protect yourself?

Know these simple guidelines:

1) Zombies move slow.....but they keep moving no matter what.
2) Zombies enjoy a snack or two....usually it is someone you know (the snack that is....or the Zombie....worse case is when it is both).
3) Zombies can easily be detected if you are downwind from them.
4) Never give a Zombie a helping hand or a piece of your mind....it only makes them stronger (and probably hurts you).
5) To distract a Zombie...toss one of your friends in front of it and run!

THE LOCATION:
This cache is hidden in an historic theatre on California Avenue in Palo Alto. Originally named for a small community, Mayfield, which was later annexed to Palo Alto, this theater was originally a simple Spanish Mission style structure, but was given a plain Moderne facade and marquee in the Fifties. The last chain to operate it was Renaissance Rialto. Today the marquee is a well known fixture on souther California Avenue - bringing back memories of Saturday horror movie matinees.

Closed in the late 1980s, the building is now reopened for the public. The marquee still reads Fine Arts in neon, and the original facade still exists in part behind the Fifties era fascia. It is sure to bring back memories of those who watched zombies and other monsters in old movies of the past in this theater.

Hours to access the cache are: Tue-Fri 11am-6pm; Sat 12pm-5pm; Sun 10am-2pm


STORYLINE:
Simply go inside and seek out the zombie supply box (an ammo box for the undead). It is in plain view. There is no purchase necessary and the owners have agreed to allow this cache to rest in peace in their location. But please be respectful of the location, employees and the patrons. Please look around and you will see the framework of the old theatre and how some old theatre chairs are now being used. The old wood theatre floor is still intact and the stage is the rear stock room area.

MOVIE RATING:
Bring the mini-cachers as this cache is really full of fun goodies and is intended as a true family cache. We brought back to life about half of the goodies we have ever recovered from caches around the world....thus even the cache contents themselves have been given a second chance to walk the earth. Please leave something if you take something and be sure to sign the Log Book Of The Undead.

SPECIAL EFFECTS:
For the First-to-Find a California Zombie Hunter patch or Zombie Hunter bracelet or many other undead, horror things to choose from. This is wheelchair accessible.
