Joint Screening With Chicago MST3K Group: DR WHO AND THE DALEKS

(Just a heads-up; RSVPs will end on Thursday, October 17th at 5:00 pm. Also, please note that there is a cost to cover the license to show this movie; as a result, people who no show to this event without changing their RSVP may be penalized).

So you couldn't make our Dr Who and the Daleks screening in July...or you did, and you thought, "I sure wish this movie had received an MST3K-style riffing".

Thanks to our pals at the Chicago MST3K Meetup group, we're going to be holding a joint meetup, where we will view the Rifftrax version of Dr Who and the Daleks. It's a chance for us to have a really cool night with another great group, share our love of a popular theatrical spin-off of our favorite show....and well, just have a great time on a Saturday night.

Yes, there is a cost - the $10 fee (payable the night of the event) covers facility rental, licensing of the video, and various other organizer costs. (Thanks to Mike at the Chicago MSTK Meetup for reaching out and asking us to join them!). We'll be gathering at a small pub on the first floor of the Irish-American Center where you can grab dinner and a drink, check in, and then we will head upstairs for the screening around 7:30-ish.

Also, just a few further items:

  • If you want to bring a small group of your friends, please feel free to include them in your RSVP
  • Doctor Who and MST3K cosplay is not only welcome, it's encouraged.
  • If you're part of the MST3K group, you should be able to RSVP via their meetup site as well....and why not check them out in the interim? They do some pretty cool, fun screenings, and they're a good bunch of people.

So think of this as a great addition to our 50th anniversary celebration of Who...or, at the very least, a kickoff to Halloween.

Hope to see you there!

    Really nice of the organizers Gordon and Mike to put together this show for us. Truly a lot of fun. I love Doctor Who, but this movie deserved riffing.

    Can you pay for the ticket ahead of time?

      We didn't set that up this time, Helene. Sorry if that's inconvenient, but I accept cash or check.

    Does the show start right away or will there be a meet and greet first? I have to work until 6pm at the Merch Mart. May still go if timing is ok...

      We usually meet for about 1 1/2 hours downstairs - I think we're up on the 4th floor. Will e-mail everyone tomorrow with details.

    Are we kid friendly?

      Just checked with Mike (MST3K Meetup Organizer) - most Rifftrax are family friendly, and the movie's meant for kids (it's from the 1960s). I don't know if kids under, say, 7 would appreciate the film, but I would say it's family friendly.

      Great! I got to meet Mike (the MST3K meetup organizer) and his pals, and they're a *really* cool group. Looking forward to this!

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.
