I told you I’d be back. On my drive across the U.S. to my new home in sunny California (it’s good to be back!), I found quite a bit of interesting things for the genre traveler, and I’ll be sharing them over the next few days. In the mean time, here are somethings happening in November.
Robots and Us at the The Museum of Science, Boston
The Robots and Us exhibit, which was mentioned in the April issue of The Genre Traveler, is now at the Museum of Science in Boston. For more information, visit mos.org or www.robotsandus.org.
Also at the Museum of Science, in the Planetarium, you can see Destination Moon. This IMAX movie discusses “the history, the hype, and of course, the science of the Moon.”
Evil Dead: The Musical
A humorous musical version of the cult film, The Evil Dead, is now playing at New World Stages in New York. For those who really want to get into the action, buy ticket for the the first two rows of the orchestra. This area is designated as "Splatter Zone." "Patrons in the ‘Splatter Zone’ should be prepared to have a bloody good timeÃ¢â‚¬Â¦and dress accordingly." For more information, visit www.evildeadthemusical.net.
Philcon Is This Weekend
For those of you in the Philadelphia region, Philcon 2006 will take place Nov. 17 through 19 at the Sheraton Philadelphia City Center Hotel (formerly the Wyndham Franklin Plaza).
