Night Of The Living Dead 50th Anniversary Event

Mark your calendars for October 24 and 25! George A. Romero's 1968 iconic zombie masterpiece, Night of the Living Dead, is returning to theaters across the world! With a new, full 4K restoration!

From Fathom Events:
Celebrate 50 years of Living Dead by seeing the completely restored and remastered version of Night of the Living Dead in theaters. The iconic film that started the zombie genre and shaped modern horror movies as we know and love them today. Directed by horror legend, George A. Romero, the film is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time.

A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls. Romero's claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role.

For this special 50th anniversary event, audiences can see the stunning restoration of Night of the Living Dead, a product of the original filmmakers' collaborating with the Museum of Modern Art and the George Lucas Family Foundation to restore the film from the original camera negative. The remastered version is more visually striking and terrifying than ever.

If you haven't seen this film in theaters, you haven't truly seen Night of the Living Dead as it was intended: in a dark theater, on the big screen.

You know I'm all over this and I've already got the plans set with the rest of the AARGH crew for this mandatory event. But get your tickets now, because this one is sure to sell out!

I saw it for the first time in a drive in at the age of 5. Needless to say, I have never forgotten it.
