An update to this. I attended Chiller Theatre convention today and had the pleasure to meet Bertina Schulze-Mittendorf, daughter of Walter Schulze-Mittendorf who created Maria the robot from Metropolis. She had several photographs of Maria which she signed. Among the many celebrities that Chiller brings to town twice per year, my list was short this time around. It was an honor to meet veteran actor Gavin MacLeod (Operation Petticoat, McHale's Navy, Love Boat, many more) and Ike Eisenmann (Star Trek II, Escape from Witch Mountain).
I'll be heading to Chiller Theatre tomorrow in New Jersey and I'm looking forward to seeing this! A friend who is at the convention all weekend took this photo today. http://www.chillertheatre.com/main.htm
A few photos from the first two conventions of 2015, Farpoint in Timonium, MD and Monster Mania in Cherry Hill, NJ.
Pictured first is Colin Ferguson, star of the SyFy series, Eureka and recently on Haven. You might also recognize him as the current Maytag man. That was taken at Farpoint, along with the Daleks, Han Solo in Carbonite, and Iron Woman (yes, that's a young lady in the costume).
After that, we have Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, X-Files, Fire in the Sky, and more) followed up Christopher McDonald (Lt. Castillo on Star Trek: TNG among other roles etc.).
One of the semi-annual conventions that I attend is called Chiller Theatre in Parsippany, New Jersey, USA. The next one will be April 24-26, 2015 and will include a presentation by Bertina Schulze-Mittendorff, daughter of Walter Schulze-Mittendorff, the creator of Maria from Metropolis.
It was great to see you (and the museum, and Santa, and Pia) this past Sunday. I hope your toothache has abated.
Evon and I decided to drive out to the Appalachian Brewing Company in Lititz for dinner. You got us hooked! We'll save our Johnny's gift cards for next time. We still have Black Horse gift cards, too. :)
Some pics of the Village decked out for Christmas and the R2-D2 tin bank (thank you very much!).
