In case you missed Fathom Events’ nationwide presentation of RIFFTRAX: PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE last month (mentioned here), there will be an encore presentation in 285 theatres around the country on Thursday, October 8 at 7:30pm local time. The original live broadcast originated on August 20 from the Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, Tennesse, with former MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 stars Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy, and Bill Corbett offering caustic commentary on Edward D. Wood’s infamously bad sci-fi stinker.
According to Fathom Events (a company that beams concerts, movies, and other events into movie theatres, rather like a big-screen version of pay television), the re-run of the Rifftrax PLAN 9 event was the result of “high demand from fans.”
A URL and code will be revealed following the event to encore audiences to download free exclusive digital extras including the “Flying Stewardess” downloadable short; an autographed digital photo of Nelson, Murphy and Corbett; three songs by the RiffTones; and an animated short of the failed “Plans” 1 through 8.
The Rifftrax website (RiffTrax.com) offers podcasts of commentaries by Nelson, Corbet, and Murphy, which you can download onto your computer and synch up with DVDs or VOD. In June, they released their first batch of DVDs, including PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE.
