Joel Hodgson LIVE: "Riffing Myself" + MST3K: "Santa Claus Conquers The Martians"! (12/8)

Co-presented by Everything Is Festival

We’re unspeakably excited to have Joel Hodgson — the hilarious and awesome creator of both Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Cinematic Titanic — return to the Cinefamily for what basically amounts to our dream version of a TED talk. It’s going to be an incredible evening of stories and surprises: Joel will wax poetic about his forays into the depths of B-movie insanity, his search for the ultimate ventriloquist dummy (and how that dummy became the inspiration for both “Tom Servo” and “Crow”), the origin story of MST3K and the crazy array of TV pilots he’s been involved in over the years. Plus, he’s capping it all off with a screening of the MST3K version of Santa Claus Conquers The Martians! It’s going to be a very weird, very special night.
