Dawn of the Dead returns to Regal theatres for its 45th anniversary

George A. Romero’s classic Dawn of the Dead is getting a theatrical re-release at Regal Cinemas for its 45th anniversary

2023 marks the 45th anniversary of the release of the George A. Romero classic Dawn of the Dead (get it HERE) – and to celebrate, Regal Cinemas theatres across the United States are bringing the film back to the big screen! Dawn of the Dead also got a Regal theatrical re-release last year, but that was the 3-D conversion. This year, it’s the original 2-D version of the film that will be showing. The new re-release begins on October 27th.

To find out if Dawn of the Dead will be screening at a Regal near you, check their official website.

Written and directed by Romero, Dawn of the Dead has the following synopsis: As hordes of zombies swarm over the U.S., the terrified populace tries everything in their power to escape the attack of the undead, but neither cities nor the countryside prove safe. In Pennsylvania, radio-station employee Stephen and his girlfriend, Francine, 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.

The film stars Ken Foree, Scott Reiniger, Gaylen Ross, David Emge, and Tom Savini.

I have never seen the 3-D conversion of Dawn of the Dead, but I have had the opportunity to see the 2-D film on the big screen a couple times and it was a great experience. This is one of my all-time favorites, and I actually consider Dawn of the Dead to be one of the best movies ever made, regardless of genre. (I’ve always enjoyed film scholar Joe Neff’s quote, “Romero’s Dawn of the Dead makes Citizen Kane look like Maniac Nurses Find Ecstasy.”) So if you have the chance to catch a Regal theatrical screening of Dawn of the Dead, I highly recommend checking it out.

Romero’s Dead series also includes Night of the Living Dead, Day of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Diary of the Dead, and Survival of the Dead.
