Monty Python Holy Grail

This weekend, Arizona plays a lot of geek movies, plays with stop motion animation, & has a comicon!

Hey look, it’s an early geekend (oh, I said it) post!

I’m heading out of  town this weekend,  plus for some strange reason there are a lot of things going on Thursday night.

Thus, early post.

Thursday, November 3rd

Crash Course In Stop Motion Animation [Phoenix]

  • For teens from 12 – 18, but I kinda want to crash the party myself.
  • Learn some of the magic behind making these kinds of films yourself.
  • Swing by Bookmans Phoenix from 6pm to 7pm if you’re curious.

The Man Who Fell To Earth [Phoenix]

  • A movie about an alien David Bowie.
  • Reason enough to go see it.
  • At The Film Bar at 6:30pm.
  • Check out the trailer, etc.

Anime Night [Mesa]

  • If Bowie’s amazing 70s hair isn’t your thing, try some Anime.
  • Japanese cartoons on the big screen, surrounded by your fellow otaku.
  • At The Royale from 7pm to 9pm.
  • Learn all about it.

Monty Python & The Holy Grail [Phoenix]

  • This better sell out, even if geeks have to traverse huge tracks of land to get to it.
  • Bring out your dead if you have to.
  • (I can keep going.)
  • Also at The Film Bar, starting at 9:15pm.
  • Say Ni! to these details.

Gears & Rust Robot Art Show [Phoenix]

  • Local artists are showing off their metal creations.
  • I’m feeling a retro-futuristic kinda vibe from this thing.
  • Show starts at 7pm at Red Hot Robot.
  • Here’s a gorgeous flyer, and here’s a FB Event page.

Scott Pilgrim vs The World [Mesa]

  • Their last screening sold out online pretty fast.
  • Get tickets soon if you want to fall in lesbian with Scott with other fans.
  • The event is from 8:30pm to 11pm at The Royale.

Tucson Comicon! [Tucson]

  • It’s a full on comicon!
  • Extremely affordable (I hear it’s like  $3?) and always gets great reviews.
  • Saturday and Sunday at the Bookmans Event Center.
  • Learn everything you need to know on their site.
  • (Have  an awesome time without me, Tucson!)

There you go – seven reasons to get out, have fun, and meet the other geeks that live around you.

Let me know if I missed anything. Have a great weekend!
