Film Room Schedule

Arisia is possibly the last convention left on the face of the earth that continues to run real 35mm motion picture film as part of its media programming.

Many years ago, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and there were only three television channels, the film room was one of the big draws at a con and everyone packed in to see old favorite films. Today with home video and millions of television channels, people aren’t quite as desperate. So we’ve tried to make an attempt to schedule movies that you won’t see on television, and movies that have to be seen with a crowd of obsessed fen in order to get the whole effect, the kind of thing you won’t get at home on television.

We'll also be showing a 24-hour slate of videos, divided pretty evenly between Anime and live-action video. Click here for the schedule.
