Geek Bar Chigaco will be holding a FREE screening of Night of the Comet on Saturday 22 August 2015 as part of their Odd Obsession Movie Night. The evening starts at 8pm with Night of the Comet starting at 11.59pm.
The Geek Bar website describes themselves as:
"A geek-culture bar fosters and celebrates geekdom in all its forms. It goes beyond the simple trappings of geek culture like having classic board games or arcade games available to play and embraces the geek culture through events, having geek media on the TVs where other bars might have sports entertainment, guest speakers from within the geek community, having uniforms that reference geek culture, and having staff that is knowledgeable and welcoming to geek culture. As geek culture becomes ever more ascendant in society as a whole as evidenced by top television like Community, Big Bang Theory, and Game of Thrones while movies such as Star Trek, Star Wars, The Avengers, and The Hobbit are topping the movie charts, that geek culture needs a home away from home where they can indulge in being a part of that community while drinking great drinks and fantastic food. At Geek Bar Chicago you can gather with your fellow geeks and share in a unique atmosphere of excitement, curiosity, and community. Geek Bar: Come In, Geek Out!"

Billy Synder was responsible for the cast's make-up on Night of the Comet, he recently uncovered a selection of Polaroids taken on the set and you can see them in the Production Photos section of this site.
Because most movies are filmed out of sequence, it is common for photos to be taken on set to aid with continuity of costumes and make-up. There would have been many more Polaroids taken, and most of them would have been lost or disposed of, but we are thankful that Bill held on to these ones and was kind enough to share them with fans.
Actress Kelli Maroney (Samantha) recently recalled on Facebook that Billy liked to play AC/DC's Highway to Hell while working on set. Kelli also commented that is was common for actresses to be asked to look down for the photos so that the eye make-up could be recorded.

Ever wondered what a Night of the Comet toy line might look like? Night of the Comet fan Jada Crockrell has made her very own Reggie and Sam Barbie-style dolls.
With the recent increase in retro action figures, maybe we can presuade some of the toy companies (MacFarlane Toys?) to do a set of Night of the Comet action figures too.

Night of the Comet fans are in for a real treat this month; not only has the film just been released on Blu-ray by Arrow Films, but following discussions on Facebook with the film's Music Producer, Don Perry (see News item on 17 May 2014), cassette tapes were uncovered containing some of the tracks from the film that were not included in the original Official Soundtrack release.
The newly uncovered tracks include:
Don has graciously supplied the tracks and with the help of fan René Neferuaten they are now available for your aural pleasure on René's YouTube page.
Thanks go to Don Perry and Bob Summers [Bob, as well as writing several of the tracks, produced the songs along with Don] for letting the fans hear these tracks. Please respect their wishes that these tracks are for the fans and not to be used for commercial gain.
