RiffTrax Summer Shorts Beach Party

When: Thu., June 15, 7 p.m. and Tue., June 20, 7:30 p.m. 2017

The gentlemen of RiffTrax are throwing a Summer Shorts Beach Party, and everybody is going. Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, the stars of the second iteration of Mystery Science Theater 3000, are joined by original MST3K mad scientists Trace Beaulieu and Frank Conniff, and Trace's TV mom Mary Jo Pehl, to verbally de-pants a hand-picked selection of educational shorts. And at no added cost to you, the best-dressed man in entertainment, Paul F. Tompkins, will show up at some point to add his two cents. The RiffTrax Summer Shorts Beach Party is broadcast live to select movie theaters at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 15, and then repeats at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 20. You can see both showings at the Marcus Wehrenberg Ronnies 20 Cine (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; www.fathomevents.com). Tickets are $14.
