Burnt Water Productions (BWP) presents Kansas City’s first and only pop-culture, horror and sci-fi convention on September 14-16, 2012. Con X 2012 takes place at the Ramada Conference Center and boasts film icons, TV stars, filmmakers, artists, authors and musicians who have not only entertained us over the years, but have served our country and earned Olympic Gold Medals. Walter “Chekov” Koenig (“Star Trek”) and Margot “Lois Lane” Kidder (“Superman”)
headline the event along with cast reunions for “Paranormal Activity,” “Stargate SG-1” and “Amityville Horror.”
80’s movie fans will delight in meeting “Back to the Future” and “Top Gun” actor James Tolkan and Police Academy’s Leslie Easterbrook. Kansas City native and dancer Sandahl Bergman (“Conan,” “All That Jazz”) also makes a return to her hometown. If movies like “Pet Sematary,” “Shawshank Redemption,”
“Steel Magnolias” and “Sin City” had you lining up at the theatre box office, you won’t want to miss Con X full line up of stars (complete list on their website).
Fans of all genres will get a complete “Celebrity”
experience with a weekend full of options: a chance to meet the celebrities, get autographs and pictures and a lucky few will even get to know their favorite celebrity one on one at an intimate dinner in the hotel’s Fireside Room. Cocktail party and concerts benefiting Wounded Warrior Project …”Taking of Savannah” red carpet premiere … a film festival … shopping in the dealer room … Q&A’s with the celebs … these are just a few of the things that will make this a weekend convention goers won’t soon forget (full list of events on their website).
