Monthly Update:

The April 6 - 8, 2018 Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo is now roughly five weeks away. This time around we got a little carried away and packed the weekend with over 65 hours worth of Movies and Film Screenings, Guest Talks, and Stuff for every fan through the door to do and see over the course of the three day weekend.

The entire Weekend Schedule of Films and Events has been posted and just like always, you’ll find a button at the top of the FILMS and EVENTS Page that will take you to the schedule of everything we have planned come showtime.
Just head on over to the Films and Events page of the web site, or feel free to use this handy link to get to a printable Weekend Schedule. Click Here

Just like always, April’s CW Show will offer attending fans more to do and see in one day than you’ll ever be able to actually get to, so it’s never a bad thing to plot our your weekend early.

LAST MINUTE GUEST: Near the end of last month, we got word that actor and stuntman Gary Kent (Thrill Killers, Satan’s Sadists, The Forest, Bubba Ho-Tep, etc) will be making an appearance this show. He will be joining filmmaker Joe O’Connell, who’s documentary on Gary’s life and career, LOVE AND OTHER STUNTS, will be screening Friday night. Gary and Joe will be on hand all day Friday and Saturday, (and we will give them a few minutes to introduce the documentary on Friday night), so if you have anything you’d like Gary to sign, be sure to pack it with the rest of your stuff and bring it along with you. Since we just found out he was attending, we stuck Gary on the Guest Page along with a more complete bio so feel free to check out the Complete Guest List when you get a chance.

One last batch of the usual Show Reminders and we’ll see you all next Month.

For everything we offer attending fans, a pass into the Cinema Wasteland Show may be a B movie fans best bargain. The average movie theater ticket price is a real rip off these days for what you actually receive and it seems most conventions these days aren’t actually interested in anything other than presenting a guest or two that will charge you more for an autograph than it will be worth twenty years after said guests are long dead and buried. Films and Events are just a thing of the past for most cons by the looks of it. But checking out everything a CW Show offers attending fans costs practically nothing if divided out by the hour and includes various Guest Talks, Events, and dozens of films to choose from over the course of three days. After all, we don’t call ourselves the last of the old school movie fan conventions just to hear ourselves say it.
You still have until March 16th to grab yourself a 3-Day Pass for only $40 or a Single Day Pass for Saturday for only $20 and save on day-of-show pass prices.
Show expenses keep on going up so we may not be able to offer super low pass prices forever. We’d never gouge our attending fans, but a $5 increase may be needed in the near future just to cover the basic show expenses. Take advantage of the savings while you can. You can grab your passes on line by clicking here.

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 FOUR WEEKS BEFORE THE EVENT (by March 15th) 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.

We’ve always got plenty of little stuff to take care of before showtime, so I’m off to see what I can’t check off the list. Here’s hoping we’ll see you all next month when we present CW Show #33 and venture closer to our 18th Anniversary this Fall.
