The year 2019 marked the 40th anniversary of George A. Romero’s iconic film Dawn of the Dead. The film is a bold and subversive critique on American consumerism and was the first to bring zombies to a worldwide audience. Fleeing the zombie apocalypse, four survivors seek refuge in a suburban shopping mall, where the marauding undead prove nearly as terrifying as the horrors of late capitalism. Romero’s Unrated Original Theatrical release cut was first exhibited in April 1979 and is the exact version which will be screened for this program— a rare opportunity to see this version of the film on the big screen! Filmed at Monroeville Mall, Pittsburgh. Contains mature content, including violence and strong language.
