George A. Romero / 1978 / 127 minutes / Rated R

A sequel of sorts to Romero’s 1968 film Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead tells the story of a group of survivors during a zombie outbreak who take refuge in a suburban shopping mall while mass hysteria wreaks havoc on their town. 

Once an omnipresent staple of midnight movie programs, George A. Romero’s gut-chomping, genre-defining sequel to Night of the Living Dead has since all but disappeared from movie screens, as well as every other viewing format available. The cult following is now so large that it is estimated that over 80% of Dawn of the Dead’s fans have never experienced this legendary epic on a real movie screen. We are thrilled to be able to bring the original uncut theatrical version back for the fans and back for the screams!

This special anniversary screening will be $10 per admission.

The Crosstown Arts Film Series showcases a diverse collection of independent, international, historically significant, artistic, experimental, cult, underground, and documentary features.
