SLO FILM FESTIVAL: APRIL 25-30 2024 ENCORE MAY 1-5

RED EYE CINEMA: DAWN OF THE DEAD (1978)

When there’s no more room in HELL, the dead will walk the EARTH!

During an ever-growing epidemic of zombies that have risen from the dead, two Philadelphia SWAT team members, a traffic reporter, and his television-executive girlfriend seek refuge in a secluded shopping mall.

Katie Neville and Jason Kaiser, founders of the annual community festival, MicroHorrors, present an exclusive screening of DAWN OF THE DEAD in celebration of its 45th anniversary.

The opportunity to watch this film in a theatre, with fans, has long been an experience that has eluded us(and the masses!). The film’s presentation of humanity, culture, and consumerism are just as ripe for conversation today as they were upon its release. Join us at The Fremont for a late-night screening at the SLO Film Fest, of George Romero’s seminal sequel—Dawn of the Dead… and then question what you know about being human.

Content Warning: This film is presented as it was originally created and contains outdated cultural depictions and slurs.

NOT AVAILABLE DURING THE VIRTUAL ENCORE FESTIVAL.
