The “Rifftrax Live!” event that was recently broadcast into theaters across the country, including several here in Oklahoma, is returning to theaters next month. If you missed it the first time, I highly recommend attending this extremely amusing evening of comedy. I know my friends and I had a great time.
If you’re not familiar with Rifftrax, it is the latest bad-movie-bashing project of three cast members from the late, great cult series “Mystery Science Theater 3000.” To see what they’re all about, go to www.rifftrax.com.
Here’s the press release for more information:
Back by popular demand, the stars of “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ and Fathom Events present “RiffTrax: Plan 9 from Outer Space ENCORE” on Thursday, Oct. 8 at 7:30 p.m. (local time). Sign up here for an email reminder when tickets go on sale.
Who knew that the worst movie ever made would be so popular! The original evening of live riffing captured on Aug. 20 will be rebroadcast to movie theaters nationwide for one night only. Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot), now of RiffTrax.com, are even better on the big screen!
This encore event will feature the new short, “Flying Stewardess,” and non-stop hilarious riffing on a color version of “Plan 9 from Outer Space”- a 1959 science fiction/horror film written, produced and directed by Edward D. Wood Jr. Don’t miss your last chance for an exciting evening of riffing, zombies, aliens, cheesy performances, wisecracks, laughable special effects and more!
This event is hosted by Veronica Belmont, the Host of Tekzilla on Revision3 and Qore on the PlayStation Network, with Musical Guest Jonathan Coulton—singer-songwriter and internet superstar—and a special segment by Rich “Lowtax” Kyanka of Something Awful.
Everyone Loves (More) Free Stuff…
All event attendees will receive free exclusive digital goodies including the “Flying Stewardess” downloadable short, an autographed digital photo of the guys, three songs by the RiffTones and an animated short of the failed Plans 1-8! A URL and code will be revealed on-screen at the end of the encore event.
Tickets go on sale Sept. 15 and are $10 each. Until then, I’m not sure which theaters here in Oklahoma will carry the event. I will try to post something about it when I know more.
