SHOWTIMES AT IFC CENTER

45th Anniversary!

Long heralded as one of the greatest, most influential horror films of all time, this ferocious cinematic shocker has been among the most requested theatrical revival titles from fright fans the world over for the last 30+ years.

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, and we are thrilled to be able to bring the original uncut theatrical version back for the fans and back for the screams!

“Undoubtedly the zombie movie to end ’em all.” – Time Out

“Romero’s sensibility approaches the Swiftian in its wit, accuracy, excess, and profound misanthropy.” – Chicago Reader
