If you didn't quite get your fill from this year's Phoenix Comic-Con or you're just a devoted fan to the Marvel brand, Arizona Popular Culture Experience is celebrating the release of "The Avengers" this Saturday, September 22 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Visitors will be given free tours of the pop culture museum, have their chance to meet superheroes and win prizes including a copy of "The Avengers" on Blu-ray.
Local artist Ellison Keomak will be demonstrating live performance art inspired by the film at the event as well. It's all happening at the District Stage and the museum and Desert Ridge Marketplace at 21001 N. Tatum Blvd. in Phoenix.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
