You may remember back in January we were supposed to have a big classic gaming event called Freeplay. Alas it happened to conincide with a major snowstorm, so we had to postpone the festivities. Well we're ready to give it another try, and the event is now scheduled to kick off on Saturday, August 7th at 9:00 a.m. Just like Monster Fest and FantaSci it will run all day, and feature a variety of programs and panels. In addition there will be classic, coin-operated video game machines on hand for everyone to try out (no coins necessary, hence the "free"). Best of all we will hold a very special Fantasmo in the evening, featuring two classic video game films on the big screen called TRON and The Last Starfighter (with which you may be familiar : ) Our massive schedule for the day is as follows:
9:30 a.m. - Screening of The Wizard
12:00 p.m. - Vintage & Modern Computer Gaming - Presented By HRGeeks
1:30 p.m. - Screening of The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters -
Hosted By Afterburner High Score Record Holder David Hernly
4:00 p.m. - Homemade Arcades & Repair - Presented By Derek Williams
7:00 p.m. - Screening of TRON
9:00 p.m. - Screening of The Last Starfighter
. . . and as mentioned before the video games will be available for free play all day long!
If you're a fan of all things video game related, or just like these undeniably awesome movies, you dare not miss what is sure to be the ultimate event of its kind in this area!! See you August 7th!!
