    Added Event Cinemas, session times and cost also turns out that not all Hoyts cinemas are doing the marathon.

    Yeah there is both an Event Cinemas and a Hoyts here on the Central Coast and neither of them appear to be doing it which surprises me.

    So on Tuesday I heard all about the 4+ hour wait in line to get in to the Game of Thrones exhibition. I was optimistic in thinking that by today, surely there wouldn't be quite so many people eager to get in. Oh boy was I wrong. I got there at 9am this morning (it opened at 10am) and the line was already 4.5 maybe 5 hours long. I was by myself and after half an hour decided to bail. Nice day in the city walking along George St though.

    That's a shame about the Game of Thrones exhibition. Would have thought that it be at the Powerhouse Museum like they had for Star Wars: Magic of the Myth/Science Meets Imagination, Lord of the Rings, Narnia, etc.

    Oz Comic Con is just around the corner, 13th-14th September. It is at the Exhibition Centre at Glebe Island.

    I want to go to check it out. Saw that quite a few Stargate cast members will be there as well as voice actors like Jim Cummings and Bill Farmer too.

    So Supanova is coming up very soon in Sydney. I've got the time off work but am yet to buy a ticket.

    I am in a the same position with the timing and tickets. Looking forward to it and especially Oz Comic Con in September because Richard Dean Anderson and Amanda Tapping will be coming to Sydney.

    I didn't get to go though my friend did. She had a great time and her photo taken sitting in a Resistance X-Wing.

    Unfortunately Ian McDiarmid had to cancel his appearance but Chuck Norris will be attending instead. Coming from the site:

    Update: 23 May 2018 – Sad news, as Ian McDiarmid has had to cancel his upcoming appearances in Sydney and Perth due to landing a theatrical role that requires him to stay in London. Ian sends his apologies, and hopes to make it up to us in the not too distant future, in a galaxy not so far far away.

    I had a bit on my plate and missed out on going.

    How did it go?
    I hope you and your son had a great time.
