Celebrating the 45th Anniversary of its US release!


As hordes of zombies swarm over the U.S., the terrified populace tries everything in its power to escape the attack–but neither cities nor the countryside prove safe. 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, Roger and Pete. The group retreats to the haven of an enclosed shopping center to make what could be humanity’s last stand.

George A. Romero’s DAWN OF THE DEAD was released overseas in 1978 but debuted in the U.S. on April 13th, 1979, so for the first time in decades, the film will be shown in cinemas to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of its US release!

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!
