Come to RETRO CON if you love CULT MOVIES, WEIRD VIDEOS, and TV HORROR HOSTS!


After decades in the TV and video business, producer and late night host (and Retro Con regular) MR. LOBO has started a production collective and distribution network called OUTER SPACE INTERNATIONAL. You can see what they do on a free channel for ROKU called OSI 74! It’s the new home for off-center, exceptional, and highly creative independent producers. OSI 74 Specializes in counter-culture and counter programing, “funny ha-ha” and “funny strange”. And it’s all branded in a retro future feel that reminds us of UHF or early cable.

MARTINI from GWAR, KARLOS BORLOFF of MONSTER MADHOUSE, BUDDHA GONZALEZ from BIZARRE TRANSMISSIONS, WILLIAM VISNOSKY and the gang from GIANT PENNY PRODUCTIONS of UNSPORTS, OLAV PHILLIPS of PARANOIA, PAUL SANDERS of BESTOW TV, NEWT WALLEN of NERWALL FILMS, and other stars from the streaming channel OSI 74.

There will be a special FALL REVIEW Screening! A first look and a taste of the amazing and unusual programs! CINEMA INSOMNIA, SLEAZY PICTURES AFTER DARK, PACIFIC NORTH WEIRD, MONSTER MADHOUSE, BIZARRE TRANSMISSIONS, and More! 

At the OSI 74 Panel, MISTER LOBO will lead a talk and questions will be taken from the audience!

Meet and Greet your favorite OSI 74 stars! We will have a block of tables loaded with Official Merch–OSI 74 Logo Stickers and Enamel Pins! OSI 74 T-Shirts, Art Prints and items from SLEAZY P. MARTINI, Art Prints from DIXIE DELLAMORTO. CINEMA INSOMNIA autographed 8x10s, DVDs, and CDs! Meet ISOR the OUTER SPACE MONSTER! And COSMONAUTI from UTOPIA FANTATSIKA(Sunday only).

Donate to Toys For Tots at Retro Con!

September 6, 2017 Leave a comment

 

We mostly hold Retro Con for fun, but it’s always nice to be able to help out charitable causes as well! We’ve contacted our good friends over at Garrison Carida, and they have kindly agreed to host a toy drive at the show! We feel this is a perfect fit for Retro Con.

Please bring your *new and unwrapped* toy donations to Retro Con, where the Garrison Carida table will have bins on hand to place them in. All donations will go to the Toys For Tots foundation, who have been delivering toys to less fortunate children for nearly 70 years.

We thank Carida for hosting this event at the show, and for always adding to the show’s atmosphere with their amazing costumes and camaraderie!

May the Force of generosity be with you!
