Earlier this year, cinephiles lost legendary filmmaker George A. Romero, who in 1968 single-handedly invented the modern zombie film with his groundbreaking, cinema vérité-style feat of independent filmmaking, Night of the Living Dead. And, like the slow-moving, fresh-from-the-grave, flesh-eating ghouls of Romero’s first feature-length film, Night of the Living Dead is back from the grave of scratched celluloid and murky sound with a new 4K restoration. After decades of midnight showings and home movies of poor-quality prints and video transfers, Romero’s masterwork can finally be viewed on the silver screen as it was intended — scanned from the original negative and supervised by Romero. “What we have now, for good or for bad, is exactly what I shot,” Romero has widely been reported as saying. “This is closer than anything we’ve seen to the definitive version of the film. It’s in the right format, 1.33:1, and that’s never been seen before either.” Texas Theatre, 231 W. Jefferson Blvd., screens three showings this weekend: at 7 p.m. Friday, 5 p.m. Saturday and 5 p.m. Sunday. Tickets, $10, are available at
