Bruce Campbell returns to Madison

Got a gig coming up? A CD coming out? A new bass player who looks like Jesus and smells like a field of posies? If you're selling or promoting something, post it here.

Promoting his latest endeavor, Bruce Campbell will be screening the film "My name is Bruce" at the Sundance Cinema on Wednesday December 3rd. Perfomance times will be at 7:00 and 9:30 PM. Bruce will be conducting Q&A sessions for both screenings but will not be doing autograph signings. for advance tickets visit http://www.sundancecinemas.com/sundance_608.html

I grabbed tickets to both screenings as soon as they were announced. Bruce is phenomenal to his fans and has been nothing but generous to Madison during prior appearances.

Add me to the list of people surprised that it's not sold out yet. When he presented Army of Darkness at the Union Theater it was standing room only, and that wasn't even a premiere of the film.

I bought 4 seats expecting it to sell quickly and run into a friend complaining they didn't get in. This may still happen.

Wow, I just heard from a friend in Chicago, who has seen Bruce Campbell several times before at conventions, and swears up and down he is a total dickhead in person. I hope his assertion is proved wrong.

Anyway, with all these TDP forum people going to the show, how about we set up a 'Horror Happy Hour' before the 7pm showing to meet up and drink? :twisted:

I've seen him twice: a film screening and a book tour. Both times he sat for hours so that he could talk personally with everyone in line, sign everything they brought, and take pictures. That's pretty generous. Maybe he's dodging autographs this time due to time constraints. With two screenings in a row running pretty late, I imagine the usual autograph line would be a major inconvenience.

That's a good idea. Maybe at the second floor bar?

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing. I've always wanted to check out their bar upstairs or stop and grab a cocktail, but the times we've tried, it's been closed. They must have some kind of happy hour or drink specials going on. How's about meeting around 6pm?

Sorry about the wrong film times, it's fixed. I think this is a great thing. I have never had the opportunity to see the guy before and am really stoked. I just finished "If chins could kill" for the second time and have just rewatched both Evil Dead 1&2.

I'm pretty sure that the early show has sold out. There were only a very few seats left when I stopped by last night. I can;t believe that the theater was even second guessing doing this perfomance. He has a huge following here.

From everything that I have seen and read on Bruce, it seems like he is a fan guy. I spoke with his agent today and it seems like the no autographs thing is due to "His time is very limited" to quote. There is always this which might make you second guess. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UUSLOAK0Irk . I'm sure you've all seen this before, I still enjoy it.

Horror Happy Hour = great idea. What time, should I bring my freind Freakshow???

If you dress up like that at the uber-Yuppie Sundance Bar Bistro, you really will look and feel like a freak. :D

I was thinking 5:30-6pm would be a good time to meet up.
