With August here and the October 3-5 Show now a couple of months away, we’ll be adding the rest of the Movies and Short Films to the schedule this month. Be sure to check the web site for additions throughout the month since we add stuff in little batches.
Talks, Panels, and Events are starting to take shape now as well. With any luck, we’ll have the entire Weekend Schedule of Films and Events posted by early September so everyone attending can start to plot out their weekend early like usual.
POSTCARDS: Postcards for the October CW Show were ready and mailed out to anyone who ask for them a few weeks ago. If you live within a couple of hours of the convention hotel, right now is a great time to advertise the October show. Say the word and we’ll be more than happy to send you a stack of fliers or postcards to pass out. Bars, specialty shops, video stores, tattoo shops, college campuses, mail order businesses, music stores... All good places for Wasteland attendees to hang out. If you frequent any place that you think may be a good spot to put a stack of cards or run a mail order business and want to toss one in with orders, then by all means, get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to send you off a stack. As always, any help in spreading the word about the show is truly appreciated and tends to do much better than generic ads or radio spots have ever done for us. Fliers are generally always available. If you prefer fliers, then just request fliers and we’ll be more than happy to send off a stack.
We’ve actually been really busy here at Wasteland World Central lately and are now packing up for a couple of convention road trips over the next few weeks. It’s always great to see old customers and fellow wastelanders when we’re set up at various conventions across the country, so be sure to check out the WASTELAND CONVENTION SCHEDULE at the top of the main web site page to see if we’ll be at a show near you this Summer or Fall.
Got some other stuff to get done here today so let’s end things with the usual CW Show ticket and hotel reminders and call this update quits.
TICKETS: We don’t just say it. We prove it twice a year. For the 60+ hours worth of Movies, Panels, and Programming we offer our attending fans over the course of three days, there is no better bargain out there than an advance ticket to a Cinema Wasteland Show. No “hidden fees” at a Wasteland show guarantees every fan through the door is treated just like the person standing next to you in line; and your ticket in gets you everything we have to offer except for an autograph from our guests.
Between now and September 12, 2014 you can get an advance 3-Day Pass to April’s Show for only $40. And don’t forget that a 3-Day Pass always gets you into the Dealer and Guest Room half an hour before single day pass holders without paying “early admission fees” other conventions charge their attendees extra for.
Single day passes are also available until September 12th for only $20 each, and both single day or 3-Day Passes will be available at the door after the September deadline.
* This is also looking like it will be the last show where we offer a $20 single day pass on Saturday at the door. We offer over 32 hours of continuous programming on Saturday’s alone, so we’re jacking up at the door prices to $25 on Saturday’s next April while leaving the early bird and advance ticket prices alone.
HOTEL: One thing you can always count on is that the hotel will be sold out by show time. We take over the entire hotel, so things fill up nice and steady until there’s no rooms left by the show’s weekend start time. 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 will tell you that they are ”sold out” and have no rooms. And PLEASE only reserve as many rooms as you plan on using.
OK, that’s it for me this time around.
Until next month,
