MST3K in the CHI

Technically it’s not Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K for the uninitiated), but, rather, Cinematic Titanic which is just as awesome.

Cinematic Titanic comes from the creator and star of MST3K, Joel Hodgson, and has MST3Ks cast and crew of Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinstein, Frank Conniff, and Mary Jo Pehl. They continue their amazing talent (and it is a talent) of hilariously talking over really bad movies. So far they have done three films as Cinematic Titanic, BUT they will not be doing those three movies. These guys will be riffing over three completely NEW unreleased movies when they come to Chicago in December!

You probably need to know the where and when. This will all be happening at The Lakeshore Theater on December 18th – 20th. Five shows, three movies, and lifetime of regret for any MST3K fan that does not attend at least one of these. I’m saving up my $35 per show so I can see all three. In the meantime, I’ll have to just watch this Cinematic Titanic preview over and over again:

    I just wanted to say "THANKS" for putting this up! My sister is/was a huge fan of MST3K and was just talking about how much she misses it. Then, I saw this last week and let her know. The news definitely made her week (which, in turn, made mine). She’s getting us tickets ASAP. I guess for an extra $5 you can get VIP tix that guarantee seating. OOPS. I don’t know if she wanted me to advertise that perk.

    As an aside, I’ve been checking out Chicago Metblogs since the beginning of the year and have really enjoyed the info you and the other contributors provide. I hope your following grows and that you all continue to provide cool resources and info regarding this great city.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you, Mandy! I really appreciate that nice comment. I, too, am really excited about MST3K coming here in December. Hope to see you there!
