Bubonic Plays

The Bubonicon Science Fiction and Fantasy Convention returns to Albuquerque this weekend, giving fanboys and fangirls ample excuse to hang out and mingle at the Marriott Uptown (2101 Louisiana NE). As always, the emphasis is on literature. But movies and TV will be well-represented. For example: Adam Jarmon Brown will be there in full force, hosting his usual collection of late-night films and shorts. On Saturday, Aug. 25, he’ll be premiering Chris Dillon’s low-budget, locally shot zombie apocalypse comedy Desolation. Dillon (Cross, In Trouble) will be there in person for the after-hours shenanigans.

The Santa Fe Railyard Park closes out its summer movie series with a screening of Mike Myers’ comedy classic Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. The free show will take place on Friday, Aug. 24, just after sunset (around 8 p.m.). Bring your lawn chairs, but leave the booze at home. [Insert obligatory Austin Powers quote.]
