RiffTrax to return to theaters with "RiffTrax Live: Jack the Giant Killer" on Aug. 17
Former MST3K riffers Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett will return to theaters later this month when NCM Fathom and RiffTrax present “RiffTrax Live: Jack the Giant Killer” in theaters for one night at 7 p.m. Central Wednesday, August 17.
The comedians from the cult classic TV series (and BAM’s Blog favorite) “Mystery Science Theater 3000″ will take the stage in Nashville, Tenn., to provide their signature wisecracking commentary on the cheesy 1962 fantasy epic “Jack the Giant Killer.” The event will be broadcast live from Nashville to participating Fathom movie theaters across the country. In addition to the not-so-classic movie bursting with Vikings, giant rubber monsters and an evil sorcerer, fans will be treated to free digital goodies as well as a new short from the guys and two original animated shorts from Rich “Lowtax” Kyanka of Something Awful.
The event will be broadcast to 500 select movie theaters across the country through NCM’s exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. In the Oklahoma City metro area, the event will be shown at Quail Springs 24 IMAX, 2501 W Memorial; Tinseltown USA, 6001 N Martin Luther King Ave.; and Spotlight 14, 1100 N Interstate Drive in Norman.
Tickets for “RiffTrax Live: Jack and the Giant Killer” are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com.
“Being able to riff Jack the Giant Killer live is a dream come true for us,” said Michael J. Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning “Mystery Science Theater 3000,” in a news release. “Yes, it’s got a lot of eye candy: stop-motion giants, an evil sorcerer with an awesome beard, and as a main character, a dog that’s actually a Viking. Mostly, though, we’re excited to introduce the concept of the ‘leprechaun in a jar’ to the wider viewing public.”
