SaikouCon 2020, the convention's eighth year! Kick off a new decade with your friends at SaikouCon, the roaring 20s of the new millenium are here, let the party begin! SaikouCon 2020 will take place at The Mountain Laurel Resort located at 81 Treetops Drive, White Haven PA 18661 on August 7, 8, and 9 of 2020. As the new decade begins, we edge closer to the tenth anniversary of the convention... and what a ride those previous years have been! Now that SaikouCon has found a consistent home in Mountain Laurel Resort & Spa, we can finally give our all to the show itself rather than hunting for new digs for half the year's build up time, and we are ready to rock 2020 harder than any year of SaikouCon that has come before. 

Are you ready to put the ROAR into the new Roarin' 20s with us?!?
Let's ROCK It!!!!

Saikou Movie Meet Up - Godzilla vs. Kong

Saikou Movie Meet Up - Godzilla vs Kong
Saikou Movie Meet Up - Godzilla vs Kong
+

Just like Godzilla: King of The Monsters, we know this isn't anime, but dang it the SaikouSquad loves them some Kaiju, especially Godzilla! Join us for the giant monster throwdown of the century as Godzilla goes up against Kong with the fate of humanity at stake! Who is your money on for the win?


UPDATE: Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures has decided to postpone the theatrical release of Godzilla vs. Kong from November of 2020 to May of 2021 due to Covid-19 Pandemic. And so, our Saikou Movie Meet Up for the film will also be delayed until the film is released, keep an eye here for new details as we get closer to the release date of the film.



As with previous Saikou Movie Meet Ups, attendees will be responsible for purchasing their own tickets; until we can guarantee a group of 50 or more we cannot obtain a group rate for movie tickets from any theater, unfortunately. Once advance ticket sales are open, we will post the link to purchase your advance tickets here, here is the link to our Facebook event for this Saikou Movie Meet Up, https://www.facebook.com/events/455167812052798/; we ask that you RSVP there so we can estimate a headcount so we can attempt to sit in proximity to each other. Even though this can be rough now that most theaters in the local area have adopted an assigned seating format for advance and at door tickets following the record shattering release of Avengers: Endgame in 2019.



Godzilla vs. Kong Synopsis:

In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity's fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans' origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.
