"CARNIVALE" stars come to Chicago!

Flashback Weekend Horror Convention and Drive-In will be hosting a “CARNIVALE” Fan Event July 29-31, 2005 at the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare, 5554 N. River Road, Rosemont Illinois.


We will be presenting a "CARNIVALE" cast reunion which will feature Adrienne Barbeau (“Ruthie”), Tim DeKay ("Jonesy"), Bill Moseley ("Posseum"), and we are working on adding an additional “CARNIVALE” cast member. The weekend will include autograph sessions, Q& A and panel discussions, and the opportunity to meet and mingle with other “CARNIVALE” fans.


Fans of "CARNIVALE" will certainly agree that the second season was the best yet! As fans of “CARNIVALE” ourselves, we are still holding out hope that “CARNIVALE” will be picked up for a third season by another outlet. Major press will be covering the convention, so this is a chance to show just what kind of a fan base “CARNIVALE” has! Flashback Weekend will provide convention space to fans who wish to hold a “SAVE CARNIVALE” rally.


The three day long convention will also feature celebrity guests including Bruce Campbell and an “EVIL DEAD” cast reunion, a HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES” cast reunion featuring Bill Moseley, Sid Haig, and additional “HOUSE” guests, a cast reunion for the original John Carpenter’s THE FOG, and many other guests.


Flashback Weekend is Chicago’s most complete Horror/Movie Memorabilia convention by day featuring celebrity guests, a huge dealer’s room, special events, a costume contest, …and


A nostalgic outdoor recreation of the Drive-in at night featuring not only 35mm screenings of classic and premiere showings of horror films, but timeless, vintage trailers, live celebrity introductions and a fantastic concession stand!



We will be at the same location as last year. Only the name of the hotel has changed. The Holiday Inn O’Hare International is now the Crowne Plaza Chicago O’Hare. The hotel has been upgraded to a Crowne Plaza Hotel, and has undergone a $20 million renovation.

We suggest you make your hotel reservation now, as the hotel was a sell-out last year. Don’t miss out on this nearly 50% discount offer!
