Did James Bond Fight Zombies In Space?

Rivoli Theater (1979)
Broadway and 49th St - New York, NY
The iconic Dawn Of The Dead premiered in the United States 30 years ago today.  This photo was taken at the Rivoli Theater on Broadway in the Spring of 1979 during the film's first run.  An ad for the upcoming Moonraker can be seen above marquee.  The eleventh James Bond flick was the next feature to show at the Rivoli starting in late June.

The Rivoli Theater was built in 1917 and did not survive for long after this photo was taken.  The theater closed in 1987 and was demolished to make room for office towers.
