4K Restoration


Winter/Spring 2018 Preview

The Walking Dead28 Days Later? It’s likely neither would have existed without George A. Romero’s low-budget zombie primer Night of the Living Dead. Simply one of the most influential horror movies ever made, the film broke new ground in its haunting blend of grisly terror and social commentary and by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in a rare leading role. After years of poor prints and transfers, see it as never before in this new 4K restoration. Made from the original camera negative by The Museum of Modern Art, New York, it was supervised by Romero himself in the months before his passing this July. (96 mins., 4K DCP)
