Bad Movie Night
Every Sunday 8PM $6.99
In the tradition of Mystery Science Theater 3000, except you can't tell which ones are the robots. - David Manning
Cinema is our culture's dominant art form.
It holds up a mirror to who we are.
It reflects our society, our dreams, our hopes, our fears.
Our films are how future generations are going to judge us.
Unfortunately, most of them suck.
Seriously, though - ever notice how you can't walk down the street or open a magazine or stand in line at a store or simply exist without ads for some dumbass multi-zillion dollar movie about a talking kangaroo
being shoved down your throat?
And then they expect you to pay fifteen dollars to see it in some googolplex, and after sitting through a half hour of commercials? Or watch it on DVD and have to sit through even more commercials and anti-piracy ads that you can't skip past? Doesn't it all just piss you off?
If so - or if you just like to have a good time - then Bad Movie Night is for you.
Laugh with the hosts riffing on the movie. Yell your own comments. Try to figure out what the hell "Skull Films!" means. Help yourself to the free popcorn. Enjoy the non-alcoholic beverage of your choice purchased from the store across the street. Don't worry if the guy behind the counter glares at you. He does that to everyone.
Best of all, only pay six measly bucks (and ninety-nine measly cents).
Admit it: that's exactly what you were all thinking while The Dark Room was closed for those mysterious "renovations and repairs," right?
Some of you? Maybe? Hello?
Well, we didn't blow nothin' up, though you have every right to god damn us all to hell because we're returning with quite possibly the only movie include the words "planet," "of," the," and "apes" that everyone agrees is a good movie.
And yet we're gonna riff on it anyway, and its four sequels, which nobody really thinks are all that great.
But feel free to god damn us all to hell for it, anyway. You've earned it.
Your hosts Sherilyn Connelly, Mike Spiegelman, and Tristan Buckner
wonder if Man still makes war against his brother, and lets his neighbor's children starve. (Hey, we've been out of it for a while.)
