Cinematic Titanic: The Farewell Tour

Joel Hodgson, Trace Beaulieu, Frank Conniff, Mary Jo Pehl and J. Elvis Weinstein from Mystery Science Theater 3000
and special guest Dave "Gruber" Allen
live riffing
The Doll Squad (7:00pm) and The Astral Factor (9:30pm)

Cinematic Titanic, the feature-length movie riffing show from the creator and original cast of Mystery Science Theater 3000, returns to the Castro Theatre one last time before retiring from touring to roast two absolutely terrible cinematic duds!

First up is 1973's The Doll Squad, a super low budget Z-movie forced upon the public by director/editor/writer/producer Ted V. Mikels. Anthony "Hawaiian Eye" Eisley "stars" as CIA operative Connolly, who assigns uber-sexy operative Sabrina Kincaid (Francine York, far away from the Jerry Lewis films she often appeared in) to corral a bevy of shapely female assassins to try and stop a madman from destroying the world with a rat-transmitted plague virus. Before there was Charlie's Angels...there was The Doll Squad! And before that, Citizen Kane. But enjoy the cleavage-filled jumpsuits!

Top off the evening with 1976's The Astral Factor, aka The Invisible Strangler, which follows a convicted strangler who learns to turn himself invisible in jail (why not?) and, after escaping, stalks and tries to kill the five women who testified against him at his trial. Hot on his invisible trail is a police lieutenant (Robert Foxworth, gleefully cashing a pay check) who hopes to stop the paranormal sicko before he can complete his mission. Also starring Hart to Hart's Stephanie Powers, who should have had a heart to heart with her agent before signing on to this mess.

    Just got home from both shows (my honey got to go after all!) We agreed that the 2nd show was better because we could hear 99% of the riffing instead of about 50% of the first show. The music background in the movie was too loud and you couldn't hear the guys.

    Did someone seriously bring a baby? I can hear one screech behind me. Either that, or it's a pteredactyl.

    I will be there for the second show for sure. How will I find you?

    October 16, 2013

  • Rebecca

    I'm going to both! But my honey-bunny can't make it so I gotta figure out what to do with the extra tix I got. I bought two tickets for each of the two showings.

      Anabela: That's great! As you can see, the double feature is $60 (instead of $35 for each). I've got my name at Will Call to get the tickets. We can figure something out where I'll be wearing something noticible (sp?) so that you can find me in what will probably be a terribly long line for the show.

      OK! What time do you think you'll be there?

    Who is going to watch both films?

    October 13, 2013

    • Pat

      I will be there for both shows!

      October 14, 2013

  • Brandon

    Both for me! Is there any kind of get-together happening before or after?
