Attack of the ‘Thon.

After several years of wishing to attend the Boston Science Fiction Film Festival, I am finally going! More specifically I am going to the ‘Thon, the culmination of the festival, a 24 hour explosion of film that begins tomorrow at noon and finishes 1440 minutes later on Monday around noon. This event has taken place every President’s Day weekend for the last 35 years. To all reports, it is pretty fantastic and definitely a memorable experience – I mean who wouldn’t want to spend 24 hours in one room with several hundred sci-fi film fans?

The line-up of films includes:
Star Trek
The Host
Mystery Science Theatre 3000
Last Woman on Earth
20000 Leagues Under The Sea
Battlestar Galactica
Lady Terminator
The Quiet Earth

I have only seen two of these movies before and there are several that I have been wanting to watch for awhile. There will also be short films, cartoons, and contests. I’m pretty excited! When I get back, I will have a mad movie mayhem post to publish, that is for sure. 🙂


  1. Well have fun! I’m looking forward to the booty, meaning huge mayhem post.

    • Gosh, it’s going to be an epic post…up sometime tomorrow or the next day – may even be in 2 parts! 🙂
