    From Niagara This Week:

    Completion of Niagara Falls Entertainment Centre has been delayed again.

    But Mayor Jim Diodati, who toured the 5,000-seat facility Wednesday, said he’s confident the public will be “thrilled” with the venue once it opens.

    Work on the $130-million theatre at Stanley Avenue and Murray Street began in fall 2017.

    At the time, officials said the 18,000-square-metre building, which will be connected to Niagara Fallsview Casino Resort by an enclosed pedestrian walkway, was expected to open in June 2019.

    From Niagara This Week:

    Appearing at Niagara Falls Comic Con was like coming home for Lance Henriksen.

    The American actor, best known as the android Bishop in two films in the Alien franchise and the cult classics Pumpkinhead and Near Dark, recently spent several months in Toronto filming a movie and was eager to return north of the border.

    He was also pleased the comic con was held in June as opposed to the dead of winter.

    The ’80s icons will perform at Scotiabank Convention Centre April 9 with Welland rockers Revive the Rose opening.

    “It’s a big treat for us to welcome home a band that got its start here more than 35 years ago,” said convention centre president Noel Buckley.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Horror fans loved having a Niagara Falls convention this weekend dedicated to all the things they love.

    “I like it because it’s a lot more intimate, it’s more segregated to the horror genre,” said Aaron Kellar, who Saturday dressed up as Freddy Krueger from A Nightmare on Elm Street during the first-ever Frightmare in the Falls at Scotiabank Convention Centre.

    Niagara’s newest horror festival is 5 weeks (now 2 weeks) away!
