“NCM® Fathom Events, RiffTrax and IGN are kicking off 2013 with the gift of laughter with encore presentations of two of the most hilarious episodes of the now legendary “RiffTrax Live” cinema series. “The Best of RiffTrax Live: ‘Manos’ The Hands of Fate” will hit select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, Jan. 24 at 7:30 p.m. local time, and “The Best of RiffTrax Live: Plan 9 from Outer Space” will follow one week later on Thursday, Jan. 31 at 7:30 p.m. local time. Fans will enjoy some hearty laughs courtesy of the stars of RiffTrax – Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett (best known for the groundbreaking “Mystery Science Theater 3000”) – as they fire their wisecracking commentary at two of the greatest B-movies of all time.
“The Best of RiffTrax Live: ‘Manos’ The Hands of Fate” – Jan. 24
Originally broadcast to theaters in August 2012, “RiffTrax Live: ‘Manos’ The Hands of Fate” brings Torgo and other crazy characters back by popular demand. Riffing on one of the worst films of all time, this one-night encore gives fans another chance to see the comedians of RiffTrax roasting the film on the big screen. The event also features two shorts, including the introduction of that lovable loser Norman.
“The Best of RiffTrax Live: Plan 9 from Outer Space” – Jan. 31
The first Rifftrax Fathom Event broadcast to theaters in 2009, the “worst movie ever made” is back on the big screen as the stars of “Mystery Science Theater 3000” riff on the classic flick. Their hilarious jokes tackle the gold standard of bad movies in this rebroadcast. Directed by Ed Wood, “Plan 9 from Outer Space” features cheap sets, inept aliens and side-splitting dialogue. This one-night event also features a short, as well as a musical performance by Jonathan Coulton.
“Some movies are so bad that one night of riffing is just not enough,” said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. “Audiences can experience a RiffTrax event for the first time –or relive the laughter – with these two hilarious events in select U.S. theaters.” “
