Monthly Update:

What’s new with the September 29th - October 1st CW Show?…

For starters, Richard Gabai is unable to make the Fall Show. Always a shame to lose a first time guest, but we can always reschedule him in the future, and when one door closes, another one always opens as they say, so…

Charles Craig, the TV Newscaster, featured Zombie, and NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD crew member missed our last NOTLD reunion show due to illness. He’s feeling much better now and will be making his way back to meet with fans this Fall. Time to break out your NOYLD stuff and add that signature you missed last show.

We’ve been steadily adding to the FILMS and EVENTS Page of the site for the last few weeks, so if you haven’t taken a look lately, why not head on over to the web site and look around when you get a few minutes? We will continue to add stuff to the show site throughout August so we can get the entire Weekend Schedule posted by the first week of September.

INDY SHORT AND FEATURE FILM SUBMISSIONS ARE NOW CLOSED FOR THE FALL SHOW. It’s time for us to start watching everything we received by August 1st so we can get the Weekend Schedule posted on time, so unless we wind up with an open screening spot and squeeze something else into the schedule, any indy short or feature film submissions received now will just get stuck in the April 2018 submission stack.

POSTCARDS: Postcards for the Fall Show are still available, and if you live within a couple of hours, or even a couple of States away of the convention hotel, you’ve still got some time to help advertise the Fall Show.
Say the word and we’ll be more than happy to send you a stack of postcards to pass out. Bars, specialty shops, video stores, tattoo shops, college campuses, music stores... All good places for Wasteland attendees to hang out. If you frequent any place that you think may be a good spot to put a stack of cards, then by all means, send us an email and we’ll be more than happy to send you off a stack.
As always, any help in spreading the word about the show is truly appreciated and tends to do much better than generic ads or radio commercials have ever done for us.

TICKETS:For everything we offer attending fans, a pass into the Cinema Wasteland Show is the best bargain out there. Especially when compared to pretty much any other convention running today when we bother to take notice of what other cons charge. And you can still grab yourself a 3-Day Pass into CW’s Sept. 29 - Oct. 1, 2017 Show for only $40 if you act before September 8th. And a 3-Day Pass gets you in at 4:00pm on Friday, September 29th, at No Extra Charge. You can also grab Single Day Passes for only $20 each and save $5 off the at-the-door prices on Saturday between now and September 8th as well.
Come showtime, a 3-Day Pass will set you back $50 on Friday, which is still $25 to $50 (or more) less than most cons that are not named The Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo will charge you. Friday’s day-of-show price is $20, while Saturday is $25, and Sunday is still only $15. (We’re doing our best to keep prices as low as we can for as long as we can.)
You can grab your passes on line by Clicking Here.

HOTEL: The one thing you can always count on is that the hotel will be sold out by show time. We take over the entire hotel, and rooms are starting to fill up a little faster these past few shows since the motel next door raised its rates and is no longer a significant savings over the Show Hotel. Help support the show and avoid the headache of having to stay down the road by making your room reservations today. To avoid the headaches of soulless automated booking systems that like to tell you there aren’t any rooms even if there are, Reserve your room no later than SIX WEEKS BEFORE THE EVENT through our web site, or by calling The Holiday Inn reservation line at 1-877-408-4913. Remember you MUST ask for “The Cinema Wasteland Room Rate”, or they really should tell you that they are ”sold out” and have no rooms. And PLEASE only reserve as many rooms as you plan on using.

Sometimes it amazes me exactly just how much stuff we can get done in any given week here at Wasteland World Central. July was a blur of activity and in addition to working on the Fall CW Show, we also added a bunch of new Merchandise to the Merchandise Section of the CW web site. We’ve got tons of Original Movie Posters, out of print and rare DVD, and among other stuff, Authentic Autographs priced lower than you’ll pay in person for them listed for sale. Thousands of items at some of the best prices you’ll find await you in the CW Merchandise Section of the web site, so while you’re catching up on the CW Show, why not kill a little time in the Merchandise Section of the site as well?

OK, we are gearing up for our one and only trip to Chicago this weekend when we will fill the van to capacity for the annual Flashback Convention in Rosemont, IL. We’ve been heading to the Chicago area for 30 years now and I find it hard to believe that we are down to only one show there as of this year. Still, it’s always great to see old customers and familiar faces, so punch up www.flashbackweekend.com for more and we will see you there.

Until next month,
