Great Scott!! We’re kicking off our Retro Con 2014 raffle list with the device that makes time travel possible: The FLUX CAPACITOR!
An official release by Diamond Select, the prop is made to the same scale as the movie version and comes with the outer box shown. The outer casing is solid metal and can be easily mounted on a wall (or over your toilet as Doc might do). Opening the outer case and turning a knob allows you to turn on and adjust the speed of the lights!
This will be one of our primary raffle prizes for the show this year. You get one free raffle ticket for purchasing admission to the show, but extra tickets will also be available for $1 each! Good luck!!
Set Destination Time for September 14th, 2013 8:00PM!
The Regal Cinemas 24 theater next to the Oaks Expo Center has organized a special treat to coincide with the date of Retro Con 2013: A post-convention showing of the original Back to the Future!
The theater is located about a half-mile from the convention center at 180 Mill Road in Oaks, PA. The convention ends at 5pm, and this special showing will happen around 8pm (exact time to be determined soon). This will give everyone a chance to grab some dinner and rest up before the fun continues!
Standard movie rates are in effect and you will pay at the theater ticket booth just like a regular movie. The cost is $11.50 for adults, $8.50 for children 12 and under. This showing is open to everyone, whether you’re attending Retro Con or not, so feel free to spread the word to anyone that may be interested!
Our friends Tom and Amy Silknitter have also kindly offered to bring their DeLorean time machine replica to this event! It will be roped off in front of the theater for attendees to look at.
There’s also a very good chance that Mayor “Goldie” Wilson himself, Don Fullilove, will be in attendance for this showing!!
Regal Cinemas will have a table in the lobby at Retro Con in case you have any further questions about this event. We’ll see you in the future!
“I like the *sound* of that!”
We are thrilled to announce the addition of actor Don Fullilove to our 2013 guest line-up! He has had a lengthy career in both movies and television for the past 40 years, but is best known for his memorable portrayal of “Goldie” Wilson, future mayor of Hill Valley, in the original Back to the Future!
He’s gonna clean up this town!
This September 14th 2013, prepare yourselves for temporal displacement! Retro Con takes you Back to the Future with the RETURN of our replica DeLorean time machine! Flux capacitor, Mr Fusion, time circuits… it’s all here! Brought to you by our good friends Tom and Amy Silknitter, fans will have the opportunity to pose with the car and get their picture taken.
And aside from the car itself, several other replica Back to the Future props will also be present: License plates, books, paper materials, hoverboard, radiation suit, and even a replica of the yellow case Doc stored his plutonium in…
We’ll be offering fans a chance to have their photo taken with (or in) the Back to the Future time machine replica at Retro Con, in return for a small donation that will go to help our furry friends at the Cat Angel Network! (see link at bottom) Cat Angel Network is a rescue organization formed to alleviate suffering of stray cats through rescue, spay/neuter, shelter in a no-kill facility and adoption to approved homes.
Special thanks to Tom and Amy Silknitter for the use of their car at the show!
