Do you know what we've missed the most since the pandemic started? Going and just seeing a movie in the theater! We may have been to a few, but the full-blown movie experience is a thing hosts Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen are excited to get back to as the COVID pandemic starts to wane. Today they are joined by a guest who is lucky enough to have never really stopped that experience, Megaplex’s Jeff Whipple, our favorite PR person for our favorite theater chain, and sponsor of our show; Megaplex Theatres. In this first monthly special, Jeff discusses the magic of the movie theater, lessons they have learned during the pandemic, the love of their supportive audiences, and of course all the great movies, anniversary screenings, and more MegaExperiences that the Megaplex has in store for this May.

What MegaExperiences are we talking about? How about Free screenings of all eight of the "Fast and Furious" films leading up to the premiere of F9 for MyMegaRewards members, continued discounted popcorn and pop refills for your 2020 MegaTub and MegaMug through 2021, the Kids Summer Movie Pass 2021, multiple movies that are finally being released after major delays, and special anniversary screenings of classic films like Mission Impossible and Fried Green Tomatoes. Are you ready to go back to the movies? Because we are!

Beyond Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming and Tech, the brains behind Fan Effect are connoisseurs of categories surpassing the nerdy. Brilliant opinions and commentary on all things geek, but surprising knowledge and witty arguments over pop culture, Star Trek, MARVEL vs DC, and a wide range of movies, TV shows, and more. Formerly known as SLC Fanboys, the show is hosted by Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen, who are joined by guest-experts. Based in the beautiful beehive state, Fan Effect celebrates Utah’s unique fan-culture as it has been declared The Nerdiest State in America by TIME.
