Mad Max with Mel Gibson

Wasteland Weekend started 2012 with a bang by partnering with LA’s historic Egyptian Theatre for a once-in-a-lifetime screening of the films that inspired the event. Mel Gibson was on hand in between the first two films and shared his thoughts on his film career over the course of about 40 minutes. Wasteland Weekend contributed costumed characters, displays, and LA’s only replica Mad Max Interceptor to the sold-out screening. An information table was set up in the lobby for curious movie-goers.
