The Twilight Zone 'Comes Home' for Binghamton event

BINGHAMTON, N.Y. - Binghamton is hosting another dimension, of sight, sound and mind, this weekend as it celebrates its most famous son.

The Rod Serling Memorial Foundation is putting on a fan festival called "The Twilight Zone Comes Home" at the Forum Theater on Saturday.

The program includes large screen showings of three classic episodes, appearances by Serling's daughters Anne and Jodi, and a performance of the play "Everything I Need To Know I Learned in the Twilight Zone."

There will also be the local premiere of the short documentary "Carousel" which looks at how Rec Park and other prominent locations in Binghamton inspired the episode called "Walking Distance."

Foundation President Andrew Polak says Serling fans from across the country will be coming.

"A lot of the fans, especially the Facebook fans, this is a chance for them to get together and meet each other. They know each other online but they've never actually met each other in person. So, that will be exciting. I think that's part of the whole draw to the event," said Polak.

Polak says the foundation hopes to make the festival an annual event.

Doors open at 3 p.m. on Saturday for author book signings then the program runs from 4 p.m. to 10 p.m., with an hour-long break at 6 p.m. for dinner.

Tickets are $15 and can be purchased at RodSerling.com or at the door.
