Join GAMBIT's Jason Begy and Generoso Fierro, the night before beloved movie-riffers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 bring their live version, Cinematic Titanic, to the Wilbur Theater in Boston. Trace Beaulieu and Mary Jo Pehl will discuss their work and how MST3K prepared them for Cinematic Titanic.
In December of 2007, Joel Hodgson and Trace Beaulieu, two of the creators of Mystery Science Theater 3000, assembled many of the original members of that cult TV phenomenon to form Cinematic Titanic, a live and DVD version based on their original formula of riffing on terrible movies. The actors essentially play themselves as they participate in an experiment for some unknown, possibly shadowy corporation or military force. The story currently provided to the cast is that there is a tear in the "electron scaffolding" that threatens all digital media in the world. Their experience doing MST3K is key to the organization's plans. Two of the cast will discuss their thoughts on producing Cinematic Titanic which is coming to Boston on October 29th at the Wilbur Theater.
The CMS Cinematic Titanic Colloquium will be on Thursday, October 28, 2010 at 5PM in Room 54-100 at MIT. The event is free and open to the public.
