The Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo
October 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2015
Since the very first CW Show back in September of 2000, Cinema Wasteland has guaranteed everyone through the door more Films and Events than any one fan can actually attend over the course of the three day weekend. Now, as we celebrate our 15th Anniversary with our 28th show, things have never changed. The CW Show seems to be one of the very last of the old school fan shows left standing and we continue to fill a three day Wasteland Weekend with as much programming as possible.
In addition to the 20+ hours that the Vendor and Guest Room is open, we’ve packed just over 61 hours worth of programming into our October Show weekend. Once again, you’ll have to decide what you want to do most every day. Plotting out your weekend early is always a good thing and one of the biggest reasons we try to get the weekend schedule posted a month before every CW Show.
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.
