It's almost Halloween and now you can see "Night of the Living Dead" like never before as it returns to theaters for a limited time.

Right before he passed away last year, George A. Romero worked on the restoration of his zombie classic for this year's 50th anniversary. 

This week, on Oct. 24 and 25, three theaters in Tucson will be showing the film in 4K Ultra HD. It's going to look like the zombies are ready to walk off the screen and into the seats to share some of your popcorn. 

Audiences can see the restoration of a product of the original filmmakers' collaboration with the Museum of Modern Art and the George Lucas Family Foundation. It was also restored from the original camera negative.

The film will be showing at the El Con 20Century Park Place 20, and AMC Foothills 15
