I was so excited when first heard that the Music Box Theatre was going to move up their Cinepocalypse Film Festival to early in the year. Last year’s was in November and it made it tough for me to make most of the films. But as it turns out, I’ll be out of town at the Monster Bash convention that week, so I will be missing what looks to be another amazing lineup of features.

Godzilla Monster Bash Marathon

While we’ve been going to the Monster Bash Conference for the last few years (and loving every minute we’re there, I might add), they are now holding a 2-day movie marathon that is tempting me to make the drive out.

But this year, they are going with something much BIGGER!
