The Cinema Wasteland Movie and Memorabilia Expo
Sept. 30th - Oct. 1st and 2nd 2022

Since we ran the very first CW Show way back in September of 2000, Cinema Wasteland has guaranteed every fan through the door more Films and Events than anyone can actually attend over the course of the three day weekend. Now, as we round out our 22nd Year with our 39th Show, we’ve continued to make sure attending fans always get more than their admission monies worth when it comes to a Wasteland Weekend.

In addition to the 20+ hours that the Vendor and Guest Room is open to attendees, we’ve got 61+ hours worth of Indy Movies, 16mm Film Screenings, and Assorted Programming scheduled this time around.

We received more indie films that we’ve received in a few years now that everyone is getting projects finished and new stuff shot, so you’ll find them packed into both screening rooms this time out.

Just as it is with every CW show, you’ll have to decide what you want to do most every day, so plotting out your weekend early is always a good thing.

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.
