Mondo V.P. of Operations,
Now in its second year, MondoCon will be held Oct. 3-4 at the Marchesa Hall & Theater. The convention celebrates film, music, art, comic books, posters, and toys. There will be panels devoted to Mondo, its Death Waltz Recording Co.’s soundtrack releases, and the illustration collective THE VACVVM. There also will a career retrospective of feature film designer William Stout, a performance of the Pieces live re-score by Umberto, a screening of the documentary of Toymasters with filmmakers Corey Landis and Roger Lay Jr. in attendance for a post-screening Q&A, and screenings of Batman, Black Swan, The Goonies, and John Carpenter’s Halloween. Also, at 8 p.m. Oct. 2 at the Central Presbyterian Church, Mondo’s Death Waltz Recording Co. presents the Frizzi 2 Fulci live show, with composer Fabio Frizzi and his orchestra performing suites from the soundtracks of such Lucio Fulci films as The Beyond, City of the Living Dead, and Manhattan Baby. Mondo, of course, is the Alamo Drafthouse’s collectible art boutique.
