George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead is coming to theaters October 24 and 25 as a Fathom event.

George A. Romero’s Night of the Living Dead
A Special 50th Anniversary Event

Celebrate 50 years of Living Dead by seeing the completely restored and remastered version of Night of the Living Dead in theaters. The iconic film that started the zombie genre and shaped modern horror movies as we know and love them today. Directed by horror legend, George A. Romero, the film is a great story of independent cinema: a midnight hit turned box-office smash that became one of the most influential films of all time.

A deceptively simple tale of a group of strangers trapped in a farmhouse who find themselves fending off a horde of recently dead, flesh-eating ghouls. Romero’s claustrophobic vision of a late-1960s America literally tearing itself apart rewrote the rules of the horror genre, combined gruesome gore with acute social commentary, and quietly broke ground by casting a black actor (Duane Jones) in its lead role.

For this special 50th anniversary event, audiences can see the stunning restoration of Night of the Living Dead, a product of the original filmmakers’ collaborating with the Museum of Modern Art and the George Lucas Family Foundation to restore the film from the original camera negative. The remastered version is more visually striking and terrifying than ever.

If you haven’t seen this film in theaters, you haven’t truly seen Night of the Living Dead as it was intended: in a dark theater, on the big screen.

Night of the Living Dead Fans – We want you to have fun at these cinema events – but safety is paramount. Please note that attending in costume is fine, however masks, face-concealing make-up, fake weapons as well as any costumes that conceal what you are carrying, your natural body shape or face are strictly prohibited.

Frankenstein returns to theaters

F0120f94d5a42ab5853a8d72bd5d36cf4.jpgathom events brings Benedict Cumberbatch’s Frankenstein to theaters October 22 and 29 for a return engagement.

They say:

Frankenstein (2018 Encore)
Directed by Academy Award®-winner Danny Boyle, this thrilling production features both Jonny Lee Miller and Benedict Cumberbatch as Victor Frankenstein and his Creature. October 22 will feature Cumberbatch as the Creature and October 29 will feature Miller as the Creature – a chance for audiences to see both versions.

The original production was a sell-out hit at the National Theatre in 2011 and has since become an international sensation.

Childlike in his innocence but grotesque in form, Frankenstein’s bewildered Creature is cast out into a hostile universe by his horror-struck maker. Urgent concerns of scientific responsibility, parental neglect, cognitive development and the nature of good and evil are embedded within this thrilling and deeply disturbing classic gothic tale.

A Tribute to Aretha Franklin – The Blues Brothers

Just in from Cleveland Cinemas –

THE CEDAR LEE THEATRE PAYS TRIBUTE TO MUSICAL ICON ARETHA FRANKLIN

Special showing of “The Blues Brothers” on the big screen

(Cleveland, OH) – Musical icon and “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin, passed away at the age of 76 on August 16th. With a career that spanned 7 decades, few people have had an impact like Franklin. While it’s her musical legacy that she will be forever remembered, she has also left us with one truly great cinematic moment. As Mrs. Murphy in THE BLUES BROTHERS, she blew the roof off of the diner in one of the early moments of the film.

The Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.) will present THE BLUES BROTHERS on Wednesday, August 22nd at 7:00 PM giving Clevelanders a chance to experience this classic comedy on the big screen. Packed with incredible music, including Franklin’s showstopper, “Think,” THE BLUES BROTHERS stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as two brothers “on a mission from God” to save their Catholic orphanage in which they grew up.

Tickets to see THE BLUES BROTHERS are $6 and are on sale at the Cedar Lee Theatre or online at clevelandcinemas.com.
