The Ordinary Epic - A comedic audio drama about five friends and the challenges they face together—both in their "real" lives and in a shared imaginary world.
PAX East - Video games, tabletop games, both mainstream and indie games- this is the place to find them all, right here in Boston. You can usually find our booth on the south side of the convention hall, near the Magic play area.
PAX Unplugged - One of the biggest events in tabletop gaming, PAX Unplugged is held in Philadelphia in late autumn. A celebration of all sorts of old-fashioned gaming, it spawned from one of the most popular sections of PAX and bloomed into its own convention, at which Pandemonium fits right in!
Arisia - Each January for over 30 years, the Arisia convention has brought together fans from around the world to celebrate brightest stars in the science fiction and fantasy genres. Held in Boston, the four-day volunteer-run con won the title of Best Fan Gathering in the "Best in Boston" awards for 2016!

The New England Science Fiction Association is a social and literary club that has worked to connect the community since 1967. They host awards, games, simple get-togethers and other events on a weekly basis.
LARP (Live Action Roleplaying) is much like tabletop gaming—in fact, it often uses systems from popular games like Dungeons & Dragons or Vampire: The Masquerade—but enacted in real life, with costumes and rules for in-person combat. It brings a whole new dimension to roleplaying!
The Brattle - Theater in Harvard Square showing the best in classic, cutting-edge, foreign, and art-house films. Their specialty is a repertory programming format consisting of films from a particular director, genre, or subject shown over the course of a week, or on the same weekday throughout the month.
Coolidge Corner Theater - Currently offering virtual screenings. New England's most successful independent, nonprofit cinema. Built as a church in 1906, it was redesigned as an Art Deco movie palace in 1933 and has never closed its doors to the public since then. Located in Brookline, Massachusetts, it was the community's first movie theater and now, a non-profit foundation since 1989, it presents the finest international, documentary, animated, and independent film selections and series.
Due to Covid-19 most events have been postponed. Check here for news once Massachusetts reopens more fully.
