The Stars Of MST3K Bring ‘RiffTrax’ To The Amarillo Hollywood USA Theater For ‘Sharknado’ [VIDEO]
It was November 24, 1988 when KTMA television aired a unique little program where ‘a guy named Joel’ and his robot friends, Tom Servo and Crow, sat down in ‘The Satellite of Love’ to watch a B-Movie and make snide remarks and pop culture references.
If you’re not familiar with Mystery Science Theater 3000, here’s a quick recap from the show’s opening theme to bring you up to speed.
‘Invaders of the Deep’ was the first movie tackled by the trio, followed by ‘Revenge of the Mysterons of Mars.’
Mystery Science Theater 3000 lasted 11 years, beginning on Comedy Central before moving to the Sci-Fi Channel.
Joel finally escaped from the ‘S.O.L’ and was replaced by the upbeat Michael J. Nelson in 1993 and finished the run of the series.
Flash forward to 2006, when Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (Crow) begin an online website called ‘RiffTrax.’ On this site you can purchase the audio riffs from some of the biggest movies in Hollywood.
Now, Nelson, Murphy and Corbett are returning to movie theaters with ‘the mother of B-movies.’
‘Sharknado’ will be a nationwide LIVE riff EVENT on Thursday, July 10 followed by a special rebroadcast on Tuesday, July 15 at The Hollywood USA Theater on Canyon Drive in Amarillo.
Tickets are available now for both shows at RiffTraxx Live | Fathom Events.
