RiffTrax Live: Starship Troopers at the Metropolitan 14!

RiffTrax (AKA those guys from MST3K) are doing a live riff of the sci-fi classic Starship Troopers that'll be broadcast to select cinemas across the US, including the Metropolitan 14 here in ATX. Let me tell you, I've seen "RiffTrax Live!" before. It's awesome and flipping hilarious.

I'm the organizer for a new Austin-based meetup for fans of so-bad-it's-good movies called "Cinema Terriblé: Austin". I'd love to collab with your group and do a joint meetup.

The Plan:

We're going to meet at Buffalo Wild Wings, which is right across the parking lot from the movie theater, at 6:00PM. We will mingle, wait for everyone to arrive, and order a little food and drink. At 6:30PM, we will walk up to the theater. The show begins at 7PM, but 20-30 minutes before the show RiffTrax does hilarious fake pre-show "trivia". After the show ends at around 9:30PM, we can walk down to Buffalo Wild Wings or Trudy's Four Star for dinner and drinks.

    Me and my whole family were at this screening. That was pretty crazy when the signal dropped out.

      Yeah, that was really wild... But hopefully it was just the bad weather.

    A great success. 11 of us met at Buffalo Wild Wings pre-show, watched the movie, then 8 of us went to Trudy's for dinner. I organized this one like a boss. See you guys on October 24th!

    Here's the plan -- There's a Buffalo Wild Wings right across from the theater -- it's only a 2-minute brisk walk straight through the parking lot. We're going to meet at Buffalo Wild Wings at 5:45PM -- order wings, drinks and sharables, and just hang out and talk. I'll be an Indian guy with a meetup shirt. As we approach 6:30PM, we'll head up to the theater and pick up our tickets. There's no hurry, though -- our theater has 170 seats and only 40-something are filled, of which our group makes up a good number. The show starts at 7PM, but RiffTrax does movie trivia 20-30 minutes before the show, which I think we'll enjoy. The show should end at 9:30PM. After that, for anyone who's interested in further hanging out, we can walk back down to Buffalo Wild Wings, buy some drinks, and talk more.

      I made it 6PM instead of 5:45PM, to give people of North Austin a little more time to drive.

      The people of north Austin thank you :)

    Maybe bring an umbrella with you -- There's a chance of thunderstorms tonight. I'd hate to lead everyone into walking outside in the rain if it's more than a light drizzle. If the rain is really bad, then I may have to update the plans.

    Apparently if we arrive 30 minutes before the show, there will be pre-show trivia. I'm thinking we meet a good 30 to 40 minutes before that.

    Check out this article Chris-Rachael wrote. This film looks like it is dripping with geekness. Reminds me of Dorkness Rising. http://www.austinpost.org/live-geek-capital/austin-indie-flick-%E2%80%9Czero-charisma%E2%80%9D-lands-nerdisttribeca-distribution-deal-comiccon

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
