Topic: Other Cons
TODAY'S FEATURE IS BLOG #3704 - I previously posted that the 2012 Leo Carrillo Film Festival was starting on August 17th, (in blog #3696), with a Special Presentation: Dinner & A Movie! As seen in this flyer: Dinner And A Movie. Tickets were reserved for only 150 attendees, with a cost of only $30 each person.
Unfortunately, Tina and I had a week off in New Jersey / Philly area, and so we couldn't attend this fund raiser...
Then, the following Friday night, August 24th, was the start of the Film Festival, which runs for five consecutive Friday nights, as seen at this link: Flyer for the 2012 Season. The cost for each of these Friday nights is 'Free'!
For those of you that haven't attended any of the previous seven seasons... Here's the master link to my review blogs on what the film festival is like: Master Link.
In addition, I've uploaded a video so you can see what to bring to these evening: Leo Carrillo Film Festival video 2nd Night of the 2011 Festival.
Tina and I are expecting to attend this 8th Season on the 2nd night, as I have called in for reservations at 760-476-1042, which I suggest you do so also before Friday!
Friday night's film is from 1943 and titled 'Follow The Band'. Here is the link to the IMDb page for the film. Others appearing in the film besides Leo Carrillo are: Eddie Quillan, Mary Beth Hughes, Leon Errol, and Anne Rooney, among others.
While I'm posting links... Don't forget to 'Like' the Leo Carrillo Ranch Historic Park Facebook Fan Page!
Also, Leo Carrillo was 'Pancho' in the 'Cisco Kid' western TV show. I mention this because one of the half hour Cisco Kid episodes is shown before the featured film is shown. Plus... Should we have any of those comics or other westerns comic books, they would be listed here for sale!
UPDATE: 10:38 AM Wednesday - Just had a call back from the Leo Carrillo Historic Park office. This Friday is booked up and so is next Friday, September 7th! There are a few reservations left for September 14th & September 21st... So make your reservations now!
