Flier for 1999 Marathon277 views*The rushed nature of promoting this Marathon hampered this first flier a bit. It's okay, but I consider it to be a mixed bag. Part of this reasoning is due to miscommunication with the printer on my part, resulting in too much of a white border surrounding the artwork. That problem would be corrected in subsequent years.
*BLOOD FEAST did not make it to the final lineup. Hollywood major domo Jimmy Maslin could not find one of the reels in the days before the event, so we had to sub it out. (Neff)
Flier for 2001 Marathon239 views*Joe Bob Briggs was, of course, our first guest of honor. More on him in subsequent gallery posts.
*Hmmm....we never did play PSYCHO at a Studio Marathon. Actually, the original plan that year was to play Hitchcock's classic, but the Wexner Center had already booked it for their Halloween Horror double feature (with THE BLACK CAT) so we deferred to them.
*I had worked for several years to arrange for charismatic, psychotronic, electro-mashup lounge lizards The Weird Love Makers to appear with NOSFERATU. I met the group through my good friend (and longtime Marathon ally) Steve Carter, who at the time was living with Weird Love Maker Greg Fernandez. After meeting him, I attended a screening of NOSFERATU (with a crowd of around twenty) in the back of Monkey's Retreat on Halloween 1998, at which the WLM provided their own live score. From that moment on, I knew that their act would play well in front of a larger crowd.
I had arranged with head WLM (and Evolution Control Committee mastermind) Mark Gunderson for the group to perform with NOSFERATU at the 2000 Marathon, but that fell through. One year later, though, everything came together. The result was one of my favorite Marathon memories.
*I stole the free breakfast idea from the Boston Science Fiction Marathon, which once offered a free champagne breakfast to all survivors. Our free breakfast consisted of bagels and juice, but hey... (Neff)

Bruce Campbell appearance info flier/original past-up sheet358 viewsAs part of entering the Bruce Campbell business, we were given a set of restrictions for the autograph signing by the man himself. These restrictions included the infamous "only official Bruce Campbell merchandise will be signed" edict. Sheesh. Thus, we gave this mini-flier to every ticket buyer upon purchase of their pass.
