Powell's POV: That's quite the lineup of films and special events. It looks like it will be a great time for fans who live in the area and are able to attend. The pricing is certainly affordable and I can't see how you could pass up on this event if you live in the area and a fan of pro wrestling and films. If you attend, you are encouraged to send a recap of your experience to firstname.lastname@example.org.
