Phil Capasso RIP

Unread post by Mike Gebert » Thu Sep 13, 2018 2:36 pm


Phil Capasso, who just died at 82 in Carmel, Indiana, isn't someone who ever posted here, but he was a familiar face to me and likely for many others who attended film conventions like Cinecon, Cinevent and Cinesation. He was the last person left who had been to all 50 Cinevents, as well as almost all Cinecons, and so I interviewed him in this episode of NitrateVille Radio:

He's at 13:10 (hard to pinpoint here, but he's after Morris Everett talking about auctions and before Samantha Glasser).

Phil was a real gentleman, and great to hang with at the film shows. I knew him since 1978; quite a loss.
