RiffTrax LIVE: Reefer Madness
08/19/2010 The stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 take on the legendary cult classic Reefer Madness for an evening of hilarious riffing! Let RiffTrax own Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett bring you to a higher state of consciousness with their signature brand of rapid fire comedy. This event will be broadcast live to movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, August 19 at 8:00pmET / 7:00pmCT / 6:00pmMT and 8:00pmPT (tape delay). Audiences will also be treated to the world premier of three new shorts from the guys, as well as two original video shorts from Rich “Lowtax” Kyanka of Something Awful.
Movie theater audiences will receive FREE digital goodies after the event including a downloadable short, avatars and a digital photo of the guys. A URL will be revealed on-screen at which you can receive your free digital goodies after the live event.
Encore! There will be a prerecorded rebroadcast of the August 19th show on Tuesday, August 24th.
This 1936 cautionary tale tells the tragic story of innocent teens Jimmy, Bill and Mary whose lives are turned upside down by the demon weed. One puff, the madness overtakes them and soon they are dancing like lunatics, laughing like jackals and occasionally committing acts of manslaughter. Made as a deadly serious attempt to warn parents of the dangers of marijuana, this film has become a popular classic among cannabis, ahem, enthusiasts as well as anyone who enjoys a good laugh at the expense of well meaning people from decades past.
Looking Ahead: Mark your calendars for RiffTrax LIVE: House on Haunted Hill on October 28th with an encore on November 2nd! Sign up here for a reminder when tickets go on sale.
