Ah, movie events: the film buff’s bread and butter, and every comic book moviegoer’s holy grail. Regardless of whether they’re held outdoors, in a huge convention centre, or tucked away inside an old cinema, movie events are every film fan’s opportunity to meet the stars, chat to other enthusiasts, discover insider information, or to simply watch a fantastic title again with a little extra commentary, or several seconds of unseen footage. If you’re a film fan then you need to be at such events in order to satiate your need to geek, and we’re here to help you find the very best.
To Vegas, my friends!
There can be little doubt that Las Vegas is home to some serious razzle-dazzle. From its casinos and incredible hotels, to the entertainment that’s held in such venues on a nightly basis, Sin City is THE place to go if you’re in search of good food, fine wine, and shows that are more than a little spectacular – with an extra helping of glitter thrown in for good measure.
Las Vegas is also more than a little capable of putting on a fantastic movie event; events you’ll want – no, need – to be at. You see, while Hollywood and the studio system of Los Angeles are renowned as the home of movies, stars, and everything in between, it’s in Vegas that the silver screen can really come to life. Also, who could pass up the opportunity to head to Vegas, with its close proximity to the Grand Canyon, millions of neon lights, fantastic attractions, and epic accommodation?
Vegas’s hotels include the luxurious Treasure Island, a hotel overseen by Steve Wynn. This well-known entrepreneur has spread his wings a little further than the hotel industry and is currently investing his time and money into philanthropic endeavours, such as the Wynn Institute for Vision Research. His dedication to Vegas has created an empire. Indeed, Treasure Island currently features the Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N interactive experience, an exhibit you can’t afford to miss.
You may as well take in a few other movie events while you’re there.
Movie events such as…
Cinema Con, Caesar’s Palace

While the outdoor cinema season is coming to a close in Vegas, there are still odd events and festivals taking place to look forward to, while next year’s calendar is already in its planning stages.
