There will be a “bandit,” a bunch of Bradys, Griswolds and Sharknado survivors appearing this weekend at the pop-culture memorabilia show, Steel City Con.

The headliner for the Aug. 11 to 13 Monroeville show is Burt Reynolds, perhaps best known from the “Smokey and the Bandit” series, as well as “Deliverance,” “The Longest Yard” and his Oscar-nominated performance in “Boogie Nights.”

He has extended his hours at the show from 4 to 7 p.m. Aug. 11 and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 12.

Fans of “The Brady Bunch” will get a chance to meet half of the siblings: Barry Williams (Greg), Mike Lookinland (Bobby) and Susan Olsen (Cindy). For “National Lampoon's Vacation” fans, Griswold mother Beverly D'Angelo (Ellen) and daughter Dana Barron (Audrey) will be attending. “Sharknado” survivors Tara Reid (April Wexler) and Masiela Lusha (Gemini) will be available.

Some of the other celebrities attending are: Ralph Macchio (“The Karate Kid”), Lisa Marie (“Mars Attacks!”), Nancy Allen (“RoboCop”) and Chris Kirkpatrick (NSYNC). Amy Jo Johnson, the original Pink Power Ranger, will also be having a private screening and question/answer session of her film, “The Space Between.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
