A New York magazine article begins with the director of the Columbus Ohio 24 Hour Science Fiction Marathon reporting problems trying to get films. This is not good news.

Yes, it is an issue, not just for Marathons, but, for all revival screenings that want to show Disney or Fox films.

It’s now even harder to get some of our favorite films if they were distributed by Fox or Disney. I truly dislike their model when it comes to their catalog of older movies and I suspect their decisions would be arbitrary.

It's November and there's been no hints and few mentions of the marathon.
We are being forgotten.
 

I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

Oh I'm sure it is.
But tell me, did something seem REALLY off to you at the last 'thon? Like they were winging it with nothing really planned out except the films?
