I'm going to be bringing my daughter to CWRU this year (she was the winner of last year's Ohio Science Fiction Marathon costume contest). Unfortunately, this year's Drexel marathon is over the same weekend as my anniversary, meaning we have to miss it, so I figured I'd take her up north instead. To get her excited, I've been putting together a YouTube playlist with the trailers for all announced films for CWRU.

I'll keep it updated as additional titles are announced.

Space Jam (1996, 35mm)

Short features:
Wallace and Gromit x3 (1989-1995)

Two surprises have been nailed down. One is PG-13 on DCP, and one is NR on 35mm.

No additions since Aaron's post (Thanks AE.)
Here is the combined list as of Christmas for convenience sake..

> Jupiter Ascending (2015, 35mm)
> They Live (1988, 35mm)
> Space Jam (1996, 35mm)
> Upgrade (2018, DCP)
> Timecrimes (2007, 35mm)
> Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind (1984, 35mm)
> Gremlins (1984, 35mm)
> Frankenstein (1910, Digital)
> Wallace & Gromit x3 (1989-1995, Digital)

Given their usual pattern, this will be about half of their final hodge podge.
Due to the inevitable heat death of the universe, they, like all festivals,
usually have one or two last minute substitutions.

Times are approximate as there is no hard end time and accidents happen. Like all marathons, Cleveland always throws in a few additional cartoons, previews (usually teasers for the later surprises) and other odd junk. As compared to Columbus and Boston, the shorts are pretty consistently crap. With few exceptions (the director of the film society got married on stage one year, they had a lottery where the winner got to put on Godzilla boots and stomp a stage wide model of the city) Cleveland does not do events, giveaways, contests or random speeches during the show.

They now have a $4 per movie option for persons who opt out of the full program.

And as a subsidized event they still only charge $30 for the whole meshuggah. For parking and other details, see http://films.cwru.edu/sfmarathon44/

The surprises were
The Wild, Wild, West(A lot more fun than I remembered)
The Nutty Professor (Why Oh Why???) and
The Omega Man (I love classics, but this one was pretty dated, even for my taste)

Attendance was a little down. The overall event was well run with no glitches, except for a humongous snowstorm that started half way through.
How did the Columbusards do getting home?

They didn't. For once they did something sensible and got a hotel room. Texted me from brunch the next morning.

I'll leave it to them to provide further comment if they wish. :)
