Monthly Update:

The Sept. 30th - Oct. 1st and 2nd, 2022 CW Show is shaping up to be another great weekend, and you’ve still got a few days to grab your 3-Day Pass (or a Single Day Pass for Saturday) and save over at-the-door prices. Read on…

ADVANCE PASSES: There is still time to order your 3-Day Pass (or a single day pass for Saturday) and save over at-the-door prices the weekend of the show. Grab your 3-Day Pass for for $45 (and save $15), or your Single Day Saturday Pass for $25 (and save $5) until 9/2/22.
SUNDAY IS ALWAYS “BARGAIN DAY AT THE CINEMA WASTELAND SHOW - Sunday admission is ONLY $15. We don’t program anything except indie movies and 16mm films on Sunday, so shop our awesome (fandom award winning) Vendor Room, grab an autograph from one of our Guests (since they are with us all 3 days unless noted on the web site), and catch a film (on actual 16mm film) and enjoy the day for a bargain walk-in price!
* AND REMEMBER: There are still a few people that didn’t cash in their unused pass to the April 2020 Show that we had to cancel at the last minute due to COVID. Why not use it at the next Show since we’ll continue to let you do just that? (After all, this use your old ass pass thing will not last forever, right? There will come a time when we just won’t care to haul a list with a dwindling amount of names on it to every show in hopes that everyone has used their old passes.) No need to do anything now except show up and have an I.D. with you to pick up your pass or passes. We have a master list of everyone who bought passes for the April 2020 Show, so we just keep crossing people off the list as their passes are picked up.

THE WEEKEND SCHEDULE OF FILMS AND EVENTS: We started scheduling the Weekend Films and Events a couple of days ago and with any luck, we will have it posted the week of September 5th so everyone can plot out their weekend early and not miss anything of interest.

STILL TIME TO BOOK YOUR HOTEL ROOM: The one thing you can always count on is that the hotel will pretty much be sold out by show time. We generally take over the entire hotel and rooms are starting to fill up a little faster since the motel next door raised its rates and is no longer a significant savings over the Show Hotel. This is the best way you can help support the show, keep prices down, and avoid the headache of having to take that walk across the parking lot at night by making your room reservations today. You can reserve your room through our web site, or by calling The Best Western Plus at 1-440-238-8800. Remember to mention and/or ask for “The Cinema Wasteland Room Rate”, or they might tell you that they are ”sold out” and have no rooms, or charge you more than our room rate. And PLEASE only reserve as many rooms as you plan on using.

We are still trying to get a few Guests on the list for our March 31st, April 1st and 2nd, 2023 Spring Show so we can have an advance flier out at the Sept. / Oct. Show, so here’s hoping we hear back from some people in the next couple weeks.

See you all before you know it!
