Rifftrax Starship Troopers (Combined Meetup with the Geek Girls)

Join us watching the minds of MST3K take apart Starship Troopers. 

Movie starts at 8 , we'll meet in the lobby at 7:30. This theater has a fairly decent food selection and a full bar!

The stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000® are back in select cinemas nationwide on Thursday, August 15th for only one night in a hilarious never-before-seen take on the king of modern campy sci-fi epics: Starship Troopers. Join Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett of RiffTrax.com on Thursday, August 15th LIVE at 8:00pm ET / 7:00pm CT and taped-delayed to 7:00pm MT/ 8:00pm PT for a hilarious riff on this masterpiece of alien slaughter propaganda! This one-night event will be your only chance to see the guys fire their wisecracking commentary at Starship Troopers on the big screen. Visit FathomEvents.com for a list of participating theater and to purchase tickets

    No name tags or Meetup sign, so never found the group. Did "we" go out to eat after? If so, missed that, too. Whoever "coordinated" this apparently recognized all his/her friends and ignored everyone else who hadn't been to a group event before. Bad move.

      Name tags would have been helpful. For future events, coordinating enough time for people to meet each other before going into the theater would also be helpful. I'm sure several people were still in queue to get their tickets when the group went into the theater (sans name tags).

      Thanks everyone for the feedback. I should have asked someone to stay behind to wait a bit longer. I also like the idea of name tags or a way to easily identify group members. I appreciate everyone who did show up and sincerely apologize to those who missed sitting with the group.

    Movie: 4 stars
    Meetup: 1 star (for making me aware of the film; there was, functionally, no Meetup)

    I only saw Drew and we were in the lobby around 7:35. We waited about 5 minutes and never saw anyone, so we just went in and got concessions. By the time we got into the theater, we were lucky to have gotten a couple of decent seats (in separate spots). I had no idea this would be such a high demand event. I suppose it goes to show how many die had MST3K fans are still out there (I used to watch it much more often in the 90s but only watch sporadically now). In all honesty, it wasn't the best I've seen from the MST3K team, but take that with a grain of salt as I'm not a die hard fan. The gorilla suit "replacement scenes" for the gratuitous nudity were a bit lame, but cutting away for that may very well have been a condition of them getting usage of the film, so in that light it was a somewhat novel approach. Overall, it wasn't bad, but wasn't the greatest either.

    Sorry I missed some of you guys - theater filled up much quicker than I expected. I'll plan better next time!

    The movie was hilarious, but I couldn't find anyone in the theater. :( look forward to seeing all of you at a later meetup.

    Had a great time watching the movie, unfortunately I didn't find the group. Need a better muster point.

    With a cast featuring such luminaries as Casper Von Dien, Denise Richards, and Golden Girl Rue McClanahan how can humanity fail to beat the bugs?
    I can't wait to see what the MST3000 folks do with this movie.....
