The Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo
October 4th, 5th and 6th, 2019

Since we unleashed the very first CW Show way back in September of 2000, Cinema Wasteland has guaranteed every fan through the door more Films and Events than anyone can actually attend over the course of the three day weekend. Now, as we celebrate our 19th Anniversary with our 36th Show, we’ve continued to make sure attending fans always get more than their admission monies worth when it comes to a Wasteland Weekend.

In addition to the 20+ hours that the Vendor and Guest Room is open to attendees, we’ve packed over 61 hours worth of programming into our Fall Show weekend. Once again, you’ll have to decide what you want to do most every day, so plotting out your weekend early is always a good thing.

Movies, Events and Panel Times are subject to change from what is listed below between now and show time, so check back the week of the show for any schedule changes.
