RiffTrax Live: Space Mutiny 

When: Thu., June 14, 7 p.m. 2018
Price: $12.50
Space Mutiny belongs to the galaxy of sci-fi films that were produced in the wake of Star Wars. It has a square-jawed space pilot (Reb Brown), a scheming villain (John Phillip Law) and love interest (Cisse Cameron, who married Reb Brown in real life), and special effects. Not great ones, though. All the shots of the ships in space were licensed from the original Battlestar Galactica series, which are OK, but the interior of the giant spaceship where all the other action takes place has three rooms, the stars travel by barely modified floor buffers and there's a lot of AstroTurf. Mystery Science Theatre 3000 famously skewered the film, but most of the fame accorded comes from the ridiculous names made up for Brown's hero — Bolt Van der Huge and Thick McRunfast not the least of them. Tonight at 7 p.m., the RiffTrax crew (Mike Nelson, Bill Corbett and Kevin Murphy are all veterans of that episode of MST3K) take a second crack at their Citizen Kane with RiffTrax Live: Space Mutiny. You can see the special live broadcast at the Marcus Wehrenberg Ronnies Cine (5320 South Lindbergh Boulevard; Tickets are $12.50.
