Mystery Science Theater 3000 turns 30 with live tour headed to Royal Oak Music Theatre

Share on Nextdoor

It's hard to believe that we've been making fun of movies for 30 years alongside snarky, shiny, silhouetted robots/cult movie critics Tom Servo and Crow. Mystery Science Theater is celebrating the occasion with their second-ever tour, which includes a scheduled stop on Oct. 28 at the Royal Oak Music Theatre.

Jonah Ray, host of the Netflix reboot MST3K: The Return, will join show creator Joel Hodgson, and they will call upon their robo-friends to poke fun at two films never before screened by the MST3K crew. That includes Canadian science fiction horror (and horribly bad) film The Brain (1969) and the 1983 Argentine-American fantasy adventure film Deathstalker.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 8, and start at $39.50 per film. Tickets can be purchased here.
