Cinema Wasteland Look-Ahead

In just 30 hours, we sold our home of 10 years and bought a new house. I’m excited, overwhelmed, and running on fumes. And I can’t wait to step away from it all for a couple days and escape to Cinema Wasteland.
The line-up of movies is excellent, and with not 1 but 2 “Night of the Living Dead” guest panels, there is sure to be a lot to discover about this foundational film. Also, it’s been a while since I watched “Death Dream,” a fantastic film that deserves more attention than it gets.
Here’s a preview of our itinerary (I’ll be in the company of my partner in life and crime, of course).  Catch me if you can!
