Professor Kinema (Jim Knusch) attended the Dark Shadows Festival of 1984, with Jonathan Frid in attendance. The professor was a guest speaker, delivering a presentation on 'The Cinema of the Vampire." He was an 11th hour replacement for author Leonard Wolf. The convention and Jim are mentioned in the Dark Shadows chapter (#20) of True Tales of the Unknown, the Uninvited.
Here's the Festival's program booklet (pdf), and Jim's mementos from the event.
