Sure, technically you could watch Night Of The Living Dead (1968) on YouTube, thanks to the copyright registration error that’s made George Romero’s game-changing horror masterpiece also one of the most famous public-domain titles of all time. But those versions won’t be the 4k Ultra HD restoration of the film, which was completed by the Museum of Modern Art in 2016 with funding from The George Lucas Family Foundation, among others.

Fathom Events is hosting a nationwide series of screenings of the restored Night Of The Living Dead this coming week on Tuesday, October 24 and Wednesday, October 25, just in time not only for Halloween, but for the film’s 50th anniversary. And we’ve got 10 pairs of tickets for either screening, at the theater of your choice. (You can find a full list of theaters and showtimes at this link.) All you have to do to enter is email us at avcontests@theonion.com by noon CT tomorrow, Thursday, October 18, with the subject line “no Sunday school picnic” and the following information: Your full name, preferred email, and a first and second choice for the time, date, and theater where you’d like to see the film. We’ll pull winners and notify them by email tomorrow afternoon.
