RiffTrax: Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza!
12/16/2009 - 12/17/2009

EVENT OVERVIEW
The stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 are back on the big screen this holiday season with special guest "Weird Al" Yankovic!

Grab your friends for this one-of-a-kind hilarious holiday event! RiffTrax: Christmas Shorts-Stravaganza will broadcast LIVE to movie theatres nationwide on Wednesday, December 16th with an ENCORE on Thursday, December 17th. Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy (Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (Crow T. Robot), now of RiffTrax.com, will zing their wisecracking commentary at a wonderfully warped collection of Christmas shorts for some much needed comic relief.

The evening will feature a collection of brand new and old favorite shorts including the bizarre animated “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” classic commercials and a musical short extolling the virtues of pork.

Thanks for the heads up. I saw the Plan 9 from Outer Space one and it was a blast.

Yep, the last one was a really good time. I'm really looking forward to this one, even if I'm pretty exhausted today. Already got my ticket!

Just got back. Hilarious riffs. Now I gotta amend my Christmas list to include a Gaylord, a Jimmy Jet, and a Ding-a-Ling.

Great show. Some minor audio problems in the first short or two (it seemed like the shorts were overpowering the riffers' audio levels) but it got fixed. If you didn't see it last night and you enjoy MST3k/Rifftrax, you should go out and catch the encore tonight.

The show was great, and thankfully the audience didn't try to shout their own riffs (which I was worried someone in my party might be tempted to do). I think my favorite short was Christmas Dream.
