Grindhouse Releasing and Janus Films will unleash George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead 4K restoration into drive-ins throughout America.
That said, at the moment, only three locations have been confirmed:
- Prides Corner Drive-In, Westbrook, Maine on August 22nd
- Riverside Drive-In in Vandergrift, Pennsylvania on August 28-29th
- Midway Drive-In in Sterling, Illinois on September 19th
While that’s not a whole lot of info to go on at this time, it’s worth noting that this 4K restoration will also sport a new introduction from The Living Dead author Daniel Kraus. So that’s something.

Written, directed, photographed, and edited by George A. Romero, the film is co-written by John Russo and stars Duane Jones and Judith O’Dea.
The film sports a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes with a Critics Consensus that reads: George A. Romero’s debut set the template for the zombie film and features tight editing, realistic gore, and a sly political undercurrent.
