Next Meetup

Turkey Day Marathon 2018! There is no formal meetup for this, but it's an event you'll want to attend! Due to the premiere of Season 12 on Netflix on Thanksgiving -- the 30th anniversary of MST3k -- their annual Turkey Day Marathon has been moved to an earlier date. Think of it as Season 12 Meal Prep. From Shout Factory: ----------------------------- It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without turkey—cinematic turkey, that is! With the new season of Mystery Science Theater 3000 premiering on Thanksgiving Day exclusively on Netflix, Shout! Factory TV is helping MSTies whet their appetite for cheesy movies with a brand-new Mystery Science Theater 3000 “Turkey Day” Marathon four days earlier than usual, on Sunday, November 18th. Join series creator Joel Hodgson and Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet host Jonah Ray starting at 12 pm ET / 9 am PT on Sunday, November 18th, as they celebrate thirty years of the iconic cult TV show. The pre-holiday “Turkey Day” marathon will showcase six MST3K episodes, as well as brand-new episode intros featuring Joel and Jonah. To help the cast celebrate this momentous milestone in MST3K history, be sure to share your favorite “MSTie Memories” from the past thirty years via social media by using the hashtag #MST3KTurkeyDay! Continue the Turkey Day festivities on Thursday, November 22nd, with the launch of Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Gauntlet on Netflix. Kinga Forrester has unveiled the latest innovation in movie riffing – THE GAUNTLET! Can Jonah Heston, Tom Servo, Crow T. Robot, Gypsy – and you! – survive sitting through six cheesy movies in a row?

What we're about

Remember that one show? The one where they watch the bad movies, and they had the silhouettes on the bottom of the screen? We watch that. And now it's coming back with a new season; new movies, new hosts, new villains, and new... well, not everything is new.

Come join your fellow MSTies and see why it's one of the most beloved cult classic cable TV shows of all time, as we screen old episodes, new episodes on Netflix, and also keep you up to date on news and events such as Rifftrax LIVE broadcast events, MST3k alumni performing in Chicago, and our very own Chicago-based movie riffing crew, Down In Front!
