THE THIN MAN tells the story of retired detective Nick Charles (William Powell) who, while spending much of his time managing his wife Nora’s considerable fortune and consuming quantities of alcohol, is asked to follow the trail of a missing inventor. Although reluctant to interrupt his holiday in Manhattan, he is persuaded to investigate by Nora’s (Myrna Loy) craving for adventure, and together they embark upon a case that leads to the disclosure of deception and murder.

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.
