“Closer than anything we’ve seen to the definitive version of the film.” –George Romero

To commemorate the recent passing of director George Romero and to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his groundbreaking horror masterpiece, the Colonial is proud to present the 4K Restoration of Night of the Living Dead on the most appropriate of occasions – Halloween!

After corpses mysteriously come back from the dead to kill the living, a group of desperate strangers led by a pragmatic hero (Duane Jones) takes refuge in a farmhouse. As the night goes on and tensions in the farmhouse rise, the strangers realize that they not only have to fear the zombies outside but also each other.

Restored from the original camera negatives by the Museum of Modern Art and The Film Foundation, Romero’s legendary film comes to life with a pristine picture and experience-enhancing sound.
