Drexel's 29th Annual 24-Hour Sci-Fi Marathon is Saturday, May 19 - Sunday, May 20 from noon to noon.
Join us for the 29th Annual Ohio 24 Hour Science Fiction Marathon! The Sci-Fi Marathon is an entire spin of our planet watching science fiction features, premieres, over-looked gems, vintage trash and classics, along with cartoons, shorts and previews of coming attractions from years gone by. Hundreds of prizes are awarded to all winners and entrants in the Annual Costume Contest, as well as other contests and competitions at random. Those who survive the entire 24 hours will also receive the much coveted chrome Certificate of Marathoid Behavior to impress their friends. The devoted, demented Marathoid throng will return from far and wide to experience this year's 'thon. The communal comaraderie of this audience often makes the unbearable hilarious and the great even more glorious. Surviving the sleep-deprived ordeal with this crazed crowd brings us together in delightful, bizarre, and unexpected ways.
The Sci-Fi Marathon starts at noon on Saturday, May 19th. Get tickets at drexel.net.
