Hey, MST3K fans — are you super excited about the upcoming reunion as part of RiffTrax Live? If you don’t remember, it’s coming to a livescreening event no doubt near you on June 28, with an encore screening on July 12. Want to go but can’t afford the tickets? The RiffTrax folks are giving away 10 free pairs of tickets to the June 28 screening.
Don’t know what I’m talking about? RiffTrax is by three of the alums of the cult classic Mystery Science Theater 3000: Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett, and Kevin Murphy. And basically the idea is the same, and the crew has done quite a few live screenings.
Earlier this year, a few months after MST3K creator Joel Hodgson announced a Kickstarter to bring back MST3K, the RiffTrax crew announced that they were reuniting the old cast (and some of the cast of the successfully funded revival) for a one night event. “Just to see all these people together riffing,” wrote new MST3K host Jonah Ray in a Tweet, “it’s a comedy nerd’s Woodstock.” You can buy tickets to a screening at Fathom Events.
But that’s not the only giveaway in RiffTrax’s pockets. They are also giving away a trip to the live event in Minneapolis. That’s right: you can win two $100 tickets to the sold out show and a $2,500 card to cover your flight and hotel to go to Minneapolis. Entry for that giveaway is here.
