CoveCon is a Film/Gaming Mini Convention in your own back yard! CoveCon features two tracks filling a total of twelve hours from 10 A.M. to 10 P.M. Saturday April 27th. CoveCon will take place at a residence at Lake Monticello in Fluvanna County and is open to two meetup groups, The Charlottesville Movie Fans Meetup Group and The Chartlottesville Gamers Guild.. The goal of CoveCon is to bring together local film/game enthusiasts.

CoveCon will make every attempt to work and feel like a large convention but in a shorter time and at no cost to you. One of the two tracks is the film track, 6 movies will be shown, each movie will be presented in 1080p HD using an Epson Home Cinema projector onto a 135" screen. If you never had the chance to see these movies in the theater or wish to get as close to that experience as possible again, then this is the track for you.

The theater room can accommodate up to 6 people comfortably. Each movie is first come first served and you may sign up for more than one. Sign up for STAR WARS in this thread.

The film schedule is...

Tron (1982) - 10 A.M. - 12 P.M.
Alien (1979) - 12 P.M. - 2 P.M.
Galaxy Quest (1999) - 2 P.M. - 4 P.M.
Serenity (2005) - 4 P.M. - 6 P.M.
Star Wars (1977) - 6 P.M. - 8 P.M.
