Welcome to B-Fest 2009!

B-Fest is a 24-hour marathon of b-movies held by A&O Productions each year in January at Northwestern University's Norris University Center McCormick Auditorium in Evanston, Illinois.

B-Fest has been likened to an audience-participation version of an episode of Mystery Science Theater 3000; viewers are encouraged to voice their opinions of onscreen events, especially if such comments provide entertainment for the other festival attendees. Additional staples of B-Fest gatherings are the midnight screening of Ed Wood's Plan 9 From Outer Space, door prizes from our sponsors, the Northwestern B-Fest Players (who occasionally mount the stage to bring their own theatrical spin to the proceedings), and of course, the sing-along version of The Wizard of Speed and Time.

This year's event starts at 6pm on January 30th and ends at 6pm on January 31st. Tickets are $20 for students (with a wildcard) and $35 for everyone else.
