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.
