Last Fan Standing with Bruce Campbell in person

Watch as sci-fi & horror icon Bruce Campbell drills contestants with tough trivia in front of a live audience, separating the geek from the weak, the nerds from the herd!

Last Fan Standing is the first LIVE trivia game show celebrating fandom & pop-culture, and Bruce Campbell is the grooviest of hosts. It’s the only live game show created exclusively for fans.

Included with your event ticket is a signed copy of Hail to the Chin provided by Weller Book Works. It's been 15 years since his first memoir but Bruce is still living the dream as a "B" movie king in an "A" movie world. Bruce Campbell makes his triumphant return from where he left off in If Chins Could Kill with further hilarious, gut-wrenchingly honest confessions. He brings us through his life in the decade since his first memoir and his roles as varied as they are numerous from his roles in the Spider-Man movies to his self-referential My Name is Bruce to his role on #1 show Burn Notice and his new STARZ hit series Ash vs Evil Dead.

Co-sponsored by Weller Book Works.

$50 - Signed copy of Hail to the Chin, plus admission and a chance to be Last Fan Standing!
$100 VIP - Signed copy of Hail to the Chin, plus admission and a chance to be Last Fan Standing! You’ll also meet and greet with Bruce personally!

Friday, September 22 at the Tower Theatre
7:30 pm – Red Carpet Premiere and Festivities with director Trent Harris and cast
8 pm – THE RUBBER ROOM by Trent Harris

The Rubber Room is more than a hangout for malcontents. It is a state of mind where crazies believe that art is more powerful than money, a dangerous idea in a world run by filthy rich screw bums who want to ruin everything. Someone must stand up to these greedy rich buggers and Alexis Thrill, the world's worst writer, steps forward to lead the charge. His call to action, "What good is art if it doesn't start a riot!"

Saturday, September 23 at the Tower Theatre
7 pm – LOOKING FOR DAVID, by Betsy Ross
Red Carpet Premiere with director Betsy Ross and cast & crew

Part mystery, part love story, and port societal critique, LOOKING FOR DAVID is a very personal film that provides a searing look into our naïveté about painkiller addiction. As one viewer wrote: “The picture that emerged of David was of someone so loved and gifted, flawed and troubled, and yet so achingly human. I thinking that's what makes the film such a gift for all who watch it.” Join the (almost) entire cast and crew for the premiere and a Q&A to follow.

REBEL IN THE RYE

The life of celebrated but reclusive author, J.D. Salinger, who gained worldwide fame with the publication of his novel, "The Catcher in the Rye".
 
Set amidst the colorful backdrop of mid-20th century New York City, Rebel in the Rye follows a young Salinger (Nicholas Hoult) as he struggles to find his voice, pursues a love affair with famed socialite Oona O'Neill (Zoey Deutch), and fights on the frontlines of World War II. It’s these experiences that will inform the creation of his masterpiece, The Catcher in the Rye, bringing him overnight fame (and notoriety) and leading him to withdraw from the public eye for the rest of his life.

BRAD'S STATUS

A father takes his son to tour colleges on the East Coast and meets up with an old friend who makes him feel inferior about his life's choices.
 
Brad Sloan (Ben Stiller) has a satisfying career and a comfortable life in suburban Sacramento where he lives with his sweet-natured wife, Melanie (Jenna Fischer), and their musical prodigy son, Troy (Austin Abrams), but it’s not quite what he imagined during his college glory days. Showing Troy around Boston, where Brad went to university, he can’t help comparing his life with those of his four best college friends: a Hollywood bigshot (Mike White), a hedge fund founder (Luke Wilson), a tech entrepreneur (Jemaine Clement), and a political pundit and bestselling author (Michael Sheen). As he imagines their wealthy, glamorous lives, he wonders if this is all he will ever amount to. But when circumstances force him to reconnect with his former friends, Brad begins to question whether he has really failed or is, in some ways at least, the most successful of them all.

THE TRIP TO SPAIN

Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on a six-part episodic road trip through Spain, sampling the restaurants, eateries, and sights along the way.
 
After jaunts through northern England and Italy, Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon embark on another deliciously deadpan culinary road trip. This time around, the guys head to Spain to sample the best of the country’s gastronomic offerings in between rounds of their hilariously off-the-cuff banter. Over plates of pintxos and paella, the pair exchange barbs and their patented celebrity impressions, as well as more serious reflections on what it means to settle into middle age. As always, the locales are breathtaking, the cuisine to die for, and the humor delightfully devilish.

WIND RIVER

An FBI agent teams up with a veteran game tracker to investigate a murder that occurred on a Native American reservation.
 
U.S. Fish & Wildlife agent Cory Lambert discovers a body in the rugged wilderness of the Wind River Indian Reservation. The FBI sends in rookie agent Jane Banner, but she’s unprepared for the difficulties created by the oppressive weather and isolation of the Wyoming winter. When she employs Cory as a tracker, the two venture deep into a world ravaged by violence and the elements. Wind River is a stark look at life on the edge of an imposing wilderness, where the rule of law is eclipsed by the laws of nature.
