Stacks Image 303
Be a part of Cinema Center Halloween history! Enter our very first Pumpkin Carving Contest at this year’s Braineaters’ Ball.

We’re looking for the most creative, unique, scary, fun, or film-related pumpkins out there. If you think you’ve got the best pumpkin in Fort Wayne, enter for your chance to win. 

The winner will receive a frighteningly fantastic prize, and photos of the top pumpkins will be displayed on screen throughout the month of November. 

Pumpkins will be judged by Jonah Chrismore (Executive Director), David Schaab (Theater Manager), and Kathy Bock (Events Committee Chair). 

How to enter:

Bring your finished, carved pumpkin to Cinema Center on Saturday, October 19, 2013 (same day as Braineaters’ Ball) between noon and 4 p.m. or call 260-426-3456 to make other arrangements. 

Judging will take place on Saturday, October 19 at Cinema Center between 7:30 and 8:30 p.m.


Pumpkin Submission Tips:
  • The top pumpkins will display high levels of creativity, pumpkin-carving skill, and/or film knowledge.
  • Your pumpkin should be lit using a battery operated light source (e.g. LED light or flashlight). If you don’t have one, we will provide one for you—but no candles, please.
  • Special consideration will be given to pumpkins that are related to film in some way.
  • Upon submission, you’ll be asked to fill out an information card. Please be prepared to include a description of your pumpkin (in case it’s not immediately clear). 
  • Pumpkins can be picked up that night after 8:45 p.m. or the next day. If you need your pumpkin held longer, please call 260-426-3456 to make arrangements. Pumpkins will not be held past Monday, October 21, unless special arrangements have been made.
