BBC America’s Doctor Who EXCLUSIVE SCREENING


Saturday, September 3, 2011; 7:00 pm

Sheraton Atlanta Hotel
Grand Ballroom, 3rd Floor
165 Courtland Street NE, Atlanta GA 30303

Join BBC AMERICA for a Dragon*Con exclusive screening of the new Doctor Who episode “Night Terrors” written by Mark Gatiss. Doctor Who, which delivered record ratings for BBC AMERICA, premieres Saturdays at 9/8c on BBC AMERICA’s Supernatural Saturday. In this episode, the Doctor receives a distress call from the scariest place in the Universe. A child’s bedroom. Terrified of the monsters in his cupboard, George’s pleas for help break through the barriers of all time and space. But allaying his fears won’t be easy, even for the Doctor, because George’s monsters are real. This fall, all Doctor Who episodes will premiere on BBC AMERICA the same day as they air in the UK. Looking for updates on Doctor Who, you can find them here: follow @BBCAmerica on Twitter and BBC AMERICA on Facebook plus Doctor Who has its own Tumblr: DoctorWho.Tumblr.com and official U.S. site DoctorWho.BBCAmerica.com.

FUZE at the Masquerade

The Dragon*Con Masquerade Costume Contest dates back nearly five decades in Sci-Fi fandom and is the largest costume contest in the Southeast and one of the largest in the world!

This year FUZE is sponsoring a new aspect of the contest. If your costume is a “fusion” of two or more cultures then you qualify for the FUZE portion of the contest. An example of a qualifying costume would be a stormtrooper decked out as Elvis, a Klingon posing as Superman, Harry Potter morphed into a Zombie, etc.

The winner of the FUZE aspect of the contest will win an iPad 2!

So come to the Masquerade decked out in your best FUZED costume!
