A restoration of George A. Romero's masterpiece for the 45th anniversary of its North American premiere!

As hordes of zombies swarm over the U.S., the terrified populace tries everything in their power to escape the attack of the undead. In Pennsylvania, radio station employee Stephen (David Emge) and his girlfriend Francine (Gaylen Ross) escape in the station helicopter, accompanied by two renegade SWAT members (Ken Foree and Scott H. Reiniger). The group retreats to the haven of an enclosed shopping mall to make what could be humanity's last stand. Featuring groundbreaking special effects by Tom Savini and music by Goblin.

Part of our 20th Anniversary Celebration Series!

Please note: Per the booking agreement with the distributor, free admission and guest passes aren’t accepted for these screenings.

“Undoubtedly the zombie movie to end ’em all.” David Pirie, Time Out

“One of the best horror films ever made.” Roger Ebert

“As a blend of horror, action, tension, and humour, it stands in a class of its own.” Almar Haflidason, BBC

“A darkly satirical assault on bourgeois culture… Romero’s films tend to be left of center in outlook: ethnically and sexually integrated, pro-feminist, gay-friendly, anti-macho, and skeptical about capitalism, they represent a progressive aspect of the genre.” TV Guide (!)
