Worldcon Party tonight at Bottlehouse

WCCleveland

Tonight
4pm – Close
Bottlehouse Brewing Company
2050 Lee Road
Admission is free!

Celestial attic is throwing that Worldcon Party you are missing. The World Science Fiction Convention is being held this weekend in San Jose, California. We are all stuck here in Cleveland; we do not have to be quiet about it. Come out and join us at the Bottlehouse Brewing Company at 2050 Lee Road in Cleveland Heights from 4pm until close tonight, Sunday August 19, 2018.

We will have a two-hour panel discussion, first about the Hugos, and then about science fiction in general. What are we reading and seeing that is good? What is awful? Audience participation will be encouraged.

After that, we will party the evening away, play games, talk, network, make friends, and share our love for our favorite genre. Mac’s Back’s will be on hand with some of the Hugo winners and nominees for sale.

Admission is simply drinks at the bar. Bottlehouse has been fantastic to give us the space for free. Outside food is welcome and we are laying out some party munchies, but more are welcome. Bring party food if you can.

See you there!

A Tribute to Aretha Franklin – The Blues Brothers

Just in from Cleveland Cinemas –

THE CEDAR LEE THEATRE PAYS TRIBUTE TO MUSICAL ICON ARETHA FRANKLIN

Special showing of “The Blues Brothers” on the big screen

(Cleveland, OH) – Musical icon and “Queen of Soul,” Aretha Franklin, passed away at the age of 76 on August 16th. With a career that spanned 7 decades, few people have had an impact like Franklin. While it’s her musical legacy that she will be forever remembered, she has also left us with one truly great cinematic moment. As Mrs. Murphy in THE BLUES BROTHERS, she blew the roof off of the diner in one of the early moments of the film.

The Cedar Lee Theatre (2163 Lee Rd., Cleveland Hts.) will present THE BLUES BROTHERS on Wednesday, August 22nd at 7:00 PM giving Clevelanders a chance to experience this classic comedy on the big screen. Packed with incredible music, including Franklin’s showstopper, “Think,” THE BLUES BROTHERS stars John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd as two brothers “on a mission from God” to save their Catholic orphanage in which they grew up.

Tickets to see THE BLUES BROTHERS are $6 and are on sale at the Cedar Lee Theatre or online at clevelandcinemas.com.

Welcome to Jemcon 2018!

On todJem-Iconay’s Celestial Attic Podcast, we take you to that long ago land of Jem and the Holograms, the Hasbro toy line and associated animated TV series. I interview Rachel Pankiw about Jemcon 2018 coming to Cleveland next weekend. This show is part convention, a cosplay event, part Jem museum, and part toy fair with interest stretching well beyond just Jem and the Holograms to all of 1980s and 1990s animation.
