Transformers! More than meets the eye.
Beyond good, beyond evil, beyond your wildest imagination, in the year 2005, a war rages between the Autobots and Decepticons. The Autobots have successfully defended Earth from Megatron and his evil band of Decepticons, but they have lost the war at home on Cybertron. Heroes will rise, and evil will be reborn as a new threat in the form of the planet annihilator, Unicron, who sets his sights on Earth and the Autobot Matrix of Leadership.
Hold on tight because the most incredible rock ‘n’ roll adventure is here. It’s the ultimate battle between Autobots and Decepticons as the final confrontation between Optimus Prime and Megatron brings the battle between good and evil to a whole new level. This movie is pure robot-fighting destruction between Dinobots, Junkions, Sharkticons, and robots THE SIZE OF PLANETS. Featuring the voices of Orson Welles, Judd Nelson, Peter Cullen, Leonard Nimoy, and Eric Idle and set to a screaming aural backdrop of Stan Bush and ‘Weird Al’ Yancovic, this movie will obliterate your eyes and ears and leave you crying for more.

East Coast Comicon wrote:During a 20-year career in the comic book industry, mostly at Marvel Comics, Bob Budiansky worked as an editor, illustrator, and writer. Although he edited titles like Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four, was the regular penciler on Ghost Rider for more than a year, and even created and wrote his own series, Sleepwalker, Bob is perhaps best known for the work he did on The Transformers.
Bob was the editor on the very first Transfomers mini-series in 1984. He followed up that hugely successful four-issue intro by scripting most of the next 50-plus issues of the monthly Transformers comic book. He also named, created character profiles of, and wrote Hasbro packaging copy for approximately 250 Transformers during the first six years of the brand’s existence, and developed story treatments as Hasbro introduced new lines of Transformers. And occasionally he even penciled a Transformers comic book cover or two.
Bob is no longer active in the comic book industry, but still produces art commissions based on his comic book work.

Double Feature! Director & Crew Members In Person!
THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE / G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE
Presented by the American Cinematheque and Dammaged Goods
Discussion between films with TRANSFORMERS story consultant Flint Dille and G.I. JOE director Don Jurwich, story consultant Buzz Dixon and story board director Larry Houston.
THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE
1986, 84 min, USA, Dir: Nelson Shin
The hit animated television series (and action figure toy line) makes its first leap to the big screen! In the year 2005, Optimus Prime and his heroic Autobots struggle to defend their home planet Cybertron from the voracious Unicron (Orson Welles, in his final role) and defeat the evil Decepticons and their ruthless leader, Megatron. The all-star cast giving voice to these battling ’bots includes Judd Nelson, Leonard Nimoy, Robert Stack, Eric Idle, Scatman Crothers and Casey Kasem. Released between the series’ second and third seasons, THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE killed off several major characters and featured a heavy-metal soundtrack and anime style that gave it a slightly darker tone than the TV program - but it’s still intergalactic fun for kids of all ages.
G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE
1987, 93 min, Japan, USA, Dir: Don Jurwich
In this feature-length spinoff of the beloved 1980s TV show, the G.I. Joe soldiers join newest hero Flint (Don Johnson) to take on the evil forces of Cobra, whose ancient Lovecraftian history is revealed as a new enemy, Serpentor, enters the scene. Featuring many of the same cast members as THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE, with Wally Burr once again directing the voices of Frank Welker, Peter Cullen, Chris Latta, Michael Bell, Dan Gilvezan, Neil Ross, Corey Burton, Jack Angel and Gregg Berger. Also features Burgess Meredith and wrestler Sgt. Slaughter.
Screening format: 35mm (THE TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE) and Blu-ray (G.I. JOE: THE MOVIE)
