I think I can say with near certainty, no... No cameras allowed. Last thing the hosts want is Every ghosthead Seeing & Hearing what the attendees experience there. :sigh:
Oh good, I love reading articles that have questionable summaries in them.

Got my tickets last night, I am very excited that I will be able to attend. Looking forward to the panels and getting to met the cast and crew in person. I am especially curious about the live reading of The Real Ghostbusters episode that was never made.
That's excellent! I can't wait for that live reading either.

If you're not with a franchise, or didn't use a coupon code, let me know... because we have a 20% off code you can use. (I know lots of other franchises did too... just offering just in case.)
Just contacted Trix. Unfortunately, they will not apply any discount or Promo codes after you have made a purchase.

Email Wizard World not Tixr.

I emailed both re applying the 20% discount to my class 10. Tixr said no but WW said yes and refunded me $350.

Yeah, but what a ride!

So, with the latest from Murray, do you think the chances to see him at the Fest are now higher?

It's tempting, but even with the 20% off it would cost me upwards of $1,400-ish with flight from NY and hotel.
Eh lol

*Insert "You Can Do Iiiiiiiiiiiit" GIF

Seriously though... if you do the GA tickets, that's $170 with the 20% discount (use ours, lol). Round trip flights, if you don't care about times, look to be about $350. Then find an AirBNB for roughly $200... that's like $750ish. Leaves plenty for merch and autographs!

YOU CAN DO IT!

Compliments of Google:
Free parking in the Overland Parking structure
Sony Pictures Studio Tour: INSIDE THE GATES

Parkopedia: Sony Pictures Studios - Culver City

Good question. I know for the tours, they say to park in the Overland Parking Structure off of Overland Avenue. I'll ask around, see if that's been established yet for the fest.

EDIT: D'oh! Ninja'ed by Kingpin.

EDIT2: Eric says more info coming soon but there will be plenty of parking available.

Wow amazing! Has she ever done any interviewing about her role? I do not recall reading anything besides maybe a quick 1 or 2 sentences somewhere a long time ago.

I had the pleasure of meeting Slavitza at a rare appearance at a U.K. convention a number of years back, we were able to converse a little, but it must be kept in mind that English isn't her first language.

I see not all of the announced guests are included in the class 5 or 10 ticket packages. Only the ones listed in the packages are (none of the guests in the red section on the website) Each additional guest is a $55 minimum for a photo op. Autograph prices aren’t even listed. What a cash grab. You’re almost better off doing everything a la carte and saving the money off the rip off class 5-10 ticket prices.

I hope to be able to do that to some degree. I would love to get Aykroyd's autograph, but I dont have thousands to throw on it.
