Night of the Living Dead is a 1968 American independent horror film, The dead come back to life and eat the living.

"Movies at the Palace" take place at the stunning United Palace, formerly the Loew's 175th Street Theatre that first opened as a deluxe movie theatre and vaudeville house in 1930. We honor that past while reinventing the movie-going experience by pairing classic titles with pre-show entertainment and expert Q&A’s. The year-long series of “Movies that Reawaken Wonder” celebrates both the Palace’s past as a Wonder Theatre and recent cinematic rebirth, including Lin-Manuel Miranda’s 2016 donation of a DCP projector.
