The September 30th - October 1st & 2nd, CW Show is still a couple of months away but things are looking good on our end. We’ve got a few busy weekends and several things to do between now and show time, so we started to schedule the three day weekend a little early this time around so we can have the entire Weekend’s Schedule of Films and Events posted 30 days before show time like usual.
In the meantime, be sure to check out the show’s web site for little updates here and there. We keep updating things as we schedule them so you can have some idea of what to expect this Fall.
We’re actually between a couple of convention road trips as I type this up, so let’s keep it short and get right to the monthly reminders before I head off and stumble over something else I have to get done this week:
TICKETS: You can grab yourself a 3-Day Pass into CW’s 16th Anniversary Show for only $40 if you act before 9/9/16. And a 3-Day Pass gets you in at 4:00pm on Friday, September 30th, at No Extra Charge. You can also grab Single Day Passes for Saturday for only $20 and save $5 off the at-the-door between now and 9/9/16.
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 charges. Friday’s day-of-show price is $20, while Saturday is $25, and Sunday is still only $15.
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 filling up a little faster then usual since the el cheapo 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. Reserve your room 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.
MOVIE AND SHORT FILM SUBMISSIONS: With August here, Indy Film Submissions for the Fall Show are now closed. Anything received from here on out may screen at the upcoming show if we have any screen time to fill, but will usually wind up in the 2017 Spring Show submission stack.
It’s always great to see new fans buying passes to the show and we’ve seen a lot of first time fans taking advantage of discount passes this time around. On the road, we’ve been able to meet a few of you first timers when you come up to our tables and tell us that you’re finally taking the plunge into the murky depths of the Wasteland waters after hearing so much about past CW Shows. In a time when there are what seems to be well over 1000 generic “horror conventions” running every year and 6 or 8 of them on any given weekend, it’s flattering to know you’re finally going to give us a try instead of just going to the convention that’s only 700 feet from your front door. We never rest on reputation here at CW World Central and will always deliver the best fan show we can for everyone. But watch out. Like any addictive drug, we have a way of hooking first timers and it’s never long before you feel like your finally home and become part of the Wasteland Family.
As with any CW Show, the wheels are already turning when it comes to the April 7th, 8th and 9th, 2017 Spring Show. With any luck, we will be offering up another great Reunion and just like always, we will have first news on next Spring’s Show available at this Fall’s Show.
OK, that’s it for me this month. We’ll see you on the road!
