The Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo
October 4th, 5th and 6th, 2013
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. As every other movie related convention running today seems to be slowly morphing into a pop culture autograph show that offers very little to absolutely nothing at all for your admission money, we at CW feel the need to continue to reward our attending fans with as many Movies, Panels, Talks, and Events as we can cram into a three day weekend.
We’ve packed 62 hours worth of programming into our October Show weekend, so 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.
