George Romero’s 1968 horror classic, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD – restored and back on the big screen!  The film sent shockwaves through America when it premiered in 1968, with its gritty depiction of horrific, reanimated corpses terrorizing seven strangers in rural Pennsylvania.  Shot on a shoestring budget using amateur actors as both the leads and the zombie extras, NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD defined the zombie movie genre for filmmakers, surviving today, 44 years after its premiere, as one of the golden standards for horror cinema.  Ben (Duane Jones) and Barbara (Judith O’Dea) are the protagonists of a story about the mysterious reanimation of the recently dead, and their efforts, along with five other people, to survive the night while trapped in a rural Pennsylvania farmhouse.
