This year marks the 40th anniversary of the release of Dawn of the Dead, George Romero's seminal zombie movie that's regarded as one of the best and most important horror films ever made. The local organization Wichita Big Screen is showing a rare restored 3-D version of the movie tonight and tomorrow night as the culmination of its annual month-long Horrorfest.

KMUW's Fletcher Powell spoke with Wichita Big Screen's founder, Leif Jonker, about Dawn of the Dead's social relevance and the significance of these screenings.
