KPBS Film Critic Beth Accomando reports on the shadowcast performance of Repo! at Comic-Con along with some other events surrounding the Con.

Transcript

During Comic-Con, Elective Surgery and the L.A. shadow cast troupe performed with "Repo! The Genetic Opera." Now Elective Surgery has a performance at the Ken at Midnight tonight. You can listen to my radio feature from Comic-Con about what a shadow cast is and the amount of work that goes into one.

Landmark will only keep running "Repo" and the Elective Surgery shadow cast if the turnout is strong. But last month's fan showing was weak. So if you enjoy these shadow casts and the film "Repo," now's your chance to show your support or possibly say goodbye to these midnight shows.
