The SciFi.com message boards just brought this to our attention – a BSG event at The Jules Verne Festival next weekend in Los Angeles. The festival runs from Friday October 24 to Sunday October 26, and LA Downtown News has more details:
Friday's opening-night program honors Roy E. Disney and Mickey Mouse, both of whom will be in attendance. In the '50s, Disney produced a series of nature documentary shorts called True Life Adventures, and he will introduce his latest production, the documentary Morning Light, which will screen for free at the ImaginAsian. Kids can arrive at 5:30 p.m. to meet Mickey Mouse and watch some of his earliest films in celebration of his 80th anniversary.
Saturday brings sci-fi classics and guests from films such as The Day the Earth Stood Still and Forbidden Planet, with a tribute to "Battlestar Galactica," featuring Edward James Olmos and other cast members of the TV show and the presentation of the Jules Verne Achievement Award to series creator Ron Moore. Apollo astronauts will appear for the L.A. premiere of The Wonder of It All, a documentary about the moon landing.
Spider-Man and Superman films fill out the day at the ImaginAsian Center with guests including Al Gough, the writer and producer of "Smallville." Alain Robert, who has scaled some of the world's tallest buildings with his bare hands, will be in person for the U.S. premiere of a French documentary covering his feats.
On Sunday, the festival presents a 40th-anniversary screening of Planet of the Apes and Beneath the Planet of the Apes in hi-def at the ImaginAsian, and actress Linda Harrison, who appeared in both films, will accept the Jules Verne Legendaire Award.
After emailing the festival organizers, we were told that they are screening “the season finale” on Saturday night; I am assuming that means Season 4.0’s finale episode, “Revelations.”
The festival also confirmed that Edward James Olmos and Ron Moore are attending the awards ceremony on Saturday night at 7PM at The Edison. Tickets available via their web site.
One last note from the festival: there will apparently be “other surprise screenings and cast members...” Could be an interesting weekend. If any of you find any more details elsewhere, please comment here.
