SDCC 20: Shout! Factory to take part in virtual con

Adding to the at-home fun (just go with it) is Shout! Factory. The video publisher will be offering a full slate of activities for those looking for a little con away from the con.

Shout! at home!

Look, there’s no denying it; an at-home version of SDCC isn’t anywhere as fun as the real thing. This year though, it’s a must as the con couldn’t even remotely have hoped to have been up and running this month. Not while the coronavirus is still busy making everyone’s life miserable.

So to that end, there’s [email protected] A number of the usual attendees are taking part in this special remote version of the SDCC, and that includes Shout! Factory.

Purveyor of all things home video and niche, Shout! Factory will be putting on quite a show too. It all begins with a Mystery Science Theater 3000 panel presentation.

MSTies worldwide can tune into the [email protected] channel on Thursday, July 23 at 6 pm PT, for Mystery Science Theater 3000 – A Panel Panorama. Join Erik Adams (The AV Club) as he leads a discussion with MST3K creator Joel Hodgson and former cast members Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot # 2) and J. Elvis Weinstein (Tom Servo # 1) as they engage in some good old-fashioned Q & A. To watch the panel, visit [email protected]’s official YouTube channel.
