Dawn of the Dead ... in 3D! Extended through Nov 9th!

UPDATE: Due to popular demand, George A. Romero’s ultimate zombie classic Dawn of the Dead, presented in 3-D (and only available at Regal Cinemas), has been extended to theatrical release through November 9th.


Following the sold-out opening night screening of  George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead in 3-D (1978) at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC earlier this year, New Amsterdam Entertainment Inc.® has partnered with Regal Cinemas to bring this dazzling 3-D conversion of the cult-classic to the rest of the country over the 4 day Halloween weekend - Friday October 28th through Halloween night, Monday, October 31st!

With a minimum of six shows playing over four days in 250 theaters nationwide, every horror movie buff from coast to coast will finally get a chance to see Dawn of the Dead in 3-D. But fans of Dawn shouldn’t worry about radical changes or edits to their beloved film.  No, this is the original, uncut 1979 US theatrical release version of Dawn of the Dead, lovingly and meticulously adapted to 3-D format under the frame-by-frame supervision of Dawn’s original producer, Richard P. Rubinstein. George A. Romero’s original editing remains untouched.

When Dawn of the Dead was first released in 1979 critics were blow away by its humor and artistry:

"...a comic apocalypse that has come to maul the becalmed 70s.  I think it's going to be the biggest cult blockbuster of all time." - Tom Allen - Village Voice

"Romero is an audacious, stunningly talented filmmaker." - Bruce Williamson - Playboy Magazine

"...brilliantly crafted, funny, droll, and savagely merciless in its satiric view of the American consumer society." - Roger Ebert - Chicago Sun-Times

When Rubinstein (executive producer on the new versions of Dune and Stephen King’s The Stand) held limited screenings of the new 3-D edition around the country audience members were overjoyed saying:

“My family had a GREAT time! ...I actually laughed at myself for literally dodging stuff coming at me!”

“Aubrey and I have seen the 3-D versions of Raiders of the Lost Ark and Jurassic Park. Dawn of the Dead in 3-D was way better. Absolutely stunning.”

“Absolutely fantastic! Dawn 3-D might be the best 3-D experience I’ve had in a theater...”

The movie is not available on any streaming platform, nor on cable, and has been out-of-print on DVD and Blu-ray in the U.S. for over a decade.  As a result, it is estimated that 75% of the fans of this cult-classic have never had a chance to see George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead on a big screen in a theater, let alone in 3-D. However, that all changes this four-day Halloween weekend – only at Regal theaters! Regal will feature Dawn of the Dead in 3-D screenings at 250 participating locations from October 28th through October 31st.  Tickets will be regular 3-D pricing available at the box office and on the Regal mobile app or visit:
