DAWN at MIDNIGHT!  In the 1980s, DAWN OF THE DEAD was one of the kings of the long lost world of midnight movies and kicking off the witching hour with this horror masterpiece will surely make for a memorable theater-going experience. Now, the Music Box Theatre brings this sacred cinematic experience back from the dead for the Chicago area zombie fans of today! The original, theatrical/director's cut of George A. Romero's  DAWN OF THE DEAD at MIDNIGHT on THE BIG SCREEN!


Writer-director George A. Romero ups the ante on his indie landmark NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD with a bigger budget, more gore (courtesy of special effects/makeup artist Tom Savini) and a touch of social commentary. Four people take refuge in a Pennsylvania shopping mall as a mysterious plague turns fresh corpses into flesh-hungry zombies and civilization collapses around them. 

“One of the best horror films ever made.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times.
