Kori and I went for the final weekend.

>>Daniel Roebuck showed up at Buena Park's Movieland Wax Museum on Saturday with one major goal.

"I want their Frankenstein to live in my house," said the 43-year-old Los Angeles actor, writer and monster collector.

Roebuck was one of about 400 movie fans who came to bid in the daylong "Everything Must Go" auction at the museum, which closed last Halloween after a 43-year run. Owners attributed declining attendance to rising competition from nearby amusement parks.

The auction, which featured about 500 items, happened simultaneously over the Internet.

Items included movie characters with their sets, props and a collection of cinema memorabilia dating to 1963.<<
