Bruce Campbell (The EVIL DEAD series, TV’s “BURN NOTICE”) will be a special guest at the Flashback Weekend Horror Convention to be held at the Midway Drive-In located in Dixon, Illinois. Bruce will be signing autographs, conducting a lively Q & A and introducing a big screen presentation of his film “MY NAME IS BRUCE”. Bruce will be appearing Saturday Sept. 11, 2010.

The complete “EVIL DEAD” trilogy will also be screened (on the HUGE 90 foot wide) screen, including a restored 35mm print of “THE EVIL DEAD” (courtesy of Grindhouse Releasing).

Charles Band and his Full Moon Road Show!

The weekend will include many special events, such as Charles Band and his Full Moon Roadshow. Charles Band released many cult classics at Drive-Ins during the 70's and 80's, and we're thrilled to have him as a guest for his first Full Moon Roadshow appearance at a Drive-In! We can't wait to see what wild and crazy things he has planned for a Drive-In audience! 

FLASHBACK WEEKEND HORROR CONVENTION 2010  AT THE MIDWAY DRIVE-IN will present 35mm screenings of classic horror and exploitation features, celebrity guests, vintage coming attractions and concession ads, a horror dealer merchandise flea market, and more!

35mm programming will include a Friday night Triple Feature and a Saturday night "Dusk to Dawn" show. Classic horror trailers and vintage concession ads will be shown in between features. Horror vendors will be set up on the Midway Drive-In grounds on during the afternoons. 

Located in northern Illinois between Dixon and Sterling, (a two hour drive from Chicago), the Midway Drive-In is home to the oldest Drive-In screen in Illinois. Hotel accommodations and campgrounds are located just minutes from the Midway Drive-In.
