plus more!

Drive-In Movie Theater on Friday night outside the hotel. Double feature plus vintage drive-in intermission break and cartoon. Starts at sunset. Vintage hot rods from the fifties on display outside the hotel 3 to 4 hours before the Drive-In starts. Saturday is the raindate for the cars!

Lots of fun, I recommend you check it out, even if it's just for a single day. Check out the web-site for more info as this is just a slice of what is going on there. Hotel rooms are limited, discount rate for convention attendees is even more limited so book your room today!

For those living on the East Coast, this will probably be the only time you can meet Norman Corwin so don't hesitate making arrangements to attend or mark it on your calendar.
