Tanner Zipchen

Tanner is a Canadian media personality, actor, and entertainment host best known for his work on the Cineplex Pre-Show.

He began his career in radio, attracted to the entertainment industry by his love for music and pop culture. During his time on air, he interviewed hundreds of musicians, actors, and entertainment icons, often connecting Canadians with their favourite nostalgia-infused personalities. Eventually, he took his show on the road, traveling across Canada to interview guests at some of the country’s largest Comic Cons and Entertainment Expos, and before long, he was joining them on stage as a host and panel moderator. In 2015, Tanner saw an opportunity to take his passion to the national level by auditioning for the Cineplex Casting Call, where he was voted by Canadians as the new Pre-Show Host. Today, in addition to hosting panels and weekly radio segments, he now appears on movie screens across Canada. As a producer and host of the Pre-Show, he travels internationally to bring fans the latest in Hollywood news and behind-the-scenes experiences. On any given day, he can be found on the sets of blockbuster films, interviewing actors and directors, or working with experts to bring audiences inside the industry. And, of course, he is there before every movie to host Canada’s favourite game, TimePlay!

Tanner is excited to bring his experience and passion for entertainment to Hal-Con and share the stage with a few of the friends he has made along the way!
