If you are a fan of film, most likely you are fan of Joel Hodgson, and his cast from Mystery Science Theater 3000. The comedic value contained in a single episode of MST3k still astounds me. I know you’ve sat through a bad film, and cracked jokes with a friend. Well, these guys do it professionally! No offense to you and your friends, but they do it much better. Cinematic Titanic features the cast from MST3K in an all new fashion, in front of a live audience! Featured as a part of the St. Louis International Film Festival this year, it is sure to be a good time. Stay tuned for more updates about the show, and the review!
CINEMATIC TITANIC is the new feature-length movie riffing show from the creator and original cast of MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000. Like MST3K, the show was created by JOEL HODGSON and features the same team that first brought the Peabody award winning cult-classic series to life: TRACE BEAULIEU (Crow, Dr. Forrester), J. ELVIS WEINSTEIN (Tom Servo, Dr. Erhardt), FRANK CONNIFF (TV’s Frank), and MARY JO PEHL (Pearl Forrester), Cinematic Titanic continues the tradition of riffing on ‘the unfathomable’, ‘the horribly great’, and the just plain ‘cheesy’ movies from the past.
Founded in late 2007, Cinematic Titanic is an artist funded, owned, and operated venture. With a combination of new shows on DVD every 6-8 weeks (available in online at cinematictitanic.com) and an ever-growing schedule of LIVE SHOWS, the CT crew hopes to reconnect with “MSTies” around the world as well as bringing new fans to the comedy artform they first brought to TV 20 years ago.
Now you can see them riff on a movie LIVE at the Family Arena on Saturday, November 21.
