The fall “offspring” of the famous Monsterpalooza convention will come to life at the Burbank Convention Center from September 13-15, 2019.
What is ”Son of Monsterpalooza”? The child of Monsterpalooza, silly! But for those who need a little bit more information before planning to head to the Burbank Convention Center this September – Monsterpalooza has become globally known as the top convention for both fans and professionals of film, makeup, special effects, art, and memorabilia of the “monster movie” genre. But monster lovers demanded more and thus the Son of Monsterpalooza was born!
Monsters As You’ve Never Seen Them Before. Since its “birth”, the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel has had the honor of hosting this event, which is set to return on September 13th and run through the 15th. Having been the former home of the “father” for seven years before it moved to Pasadena, we were the perfect choice to bring this two-of-a-kind convention to life. The entire Burbank Convention Center will be crawling with over 150 amazing artists, bringing monsters to life before your very eyes during demonstrations of award-winning makeup techniques and special exhibits full of sculptures and paintings from many beloved films and franchises! In addition, exhibitors will be on hand to sell their work such as unique masks, sculptures, costumes, props, makeup, prosthetics, and so much more monster merchandise!
Now Presenting! The heart of the convention is always the special presentations, panels, and celebrity appearances including some of the top stars and filmmakers in the business. Some of the highlights for 2019 will surely be panels for the 40th Anniversary of Phantasm and Terminator 2: Judgment Day including Robert Patrick himself. Other keynote guests include Billy Zane, Juliet Landau, and legendary writer/director/producer Dario Argento (be sure to consult the schedule for times and dates).
As the official host for Son of Monsterpalooza, Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Airport Hotel is your one true home-away-from-home for the convention. Be sure to book soon and take advantage of our special room rates for attendees of the event.
