The Goonies 30th Anniversary Screening W/ Sean Astin (Click HERE for more info)

Blade Runner screening W/ Joanna Cassidy (Click HERE for more info)


The NeverEnding Story screening W/ Noah Hathaway and Tami Stronach

Nerd Bastards own Luke Gallagher (that’s me) will be moderating the Q&A with Noah and Tami ahead of the NeverEnding Story screening. Neither Noah nor Tami have seen or spoken to each other since they were filming The NeverEnding Story 32 years ago. We’ll be connecting these two together on stage together for the very first time in 3 decades, and talk about their memories shooting The NeverEnding Story. This event will take place Saturday, June 27th, 11pm at Mechanics Hall 


With such big conventions such as PAX East, Anime Boston, Super Megafest, and Boston Comic Con – MASSive Comic Con is another event to enjoy; as well as to watch grow and expand for years to come.

Boston is known for its sports and championships (we’re called “Title Town” for a reason), but it’s a joy to see that nerds and pop culture is taking over – making Boston a convention town.
