Archive Series: Dawn of the Dead (16mm)

Short url:

After a challenging period for everyone, we are back and ready to resume our screenings at the cinema. We abide by the rules as set by the RIVM and we will have only 15 guests per screening. It's necessary to make a reservation.

You can drop by at Cavia an hour before each screening to make a reservation at the bar. While at our venue, be mindful to remain at 1.5 meter distance from other people. We trust all to be responsible with their health and hygiene check.

George A. Romero | 1978 | Italy/USA | 127' | NL subs | 16mm

Considered by many to be George Romero’s best film, Dawn of the Dead embraces the political reputation of Night of the Living Dead and deepens the criticism of the American consumerism brought forth by the director in his zombie series. A memorable classic about four unlikely allies holed up in a secluded shopping mall amidst a zombie apocalypse, screened from a 16mm copy of our own archive.
