The dimensional version of George A. Romero’s classic DAWN OF THE DEAD is coming to New York City, along with a slew of the director’s other films, as part of a special series. Read on for the details.

From February 22-March 3, Brooklyn’s BAM presents “Living With the Dead: The Films of George A. Romero,” spanning the entire spectrum of Romero’s career, including some 35mm presentations. All of his DEAD movies will be showcased (including the “flat” version of DAWN), along with early industrial films and features and his Stephen King flicks CREEPSHOW and THE DARK HALF. Producer Richard P. Rubinstein will be on hand for showings of DAY OF THE DEAD, CREEPSHOW, KNIGHTRIDERS and MARTIN, and the first show of NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD will be accompanied by Tina Romero and Suzanne Desrocher-Romero. The venue is the BAM Rose Cinemas in the Peter Jay Sharp Building (30 Lafayette Avenue); for the full schedule, tickets, etc., head over to BAM’s website.
