‘MST3K’ creators bring show to Mondavi

By From page A11 | October 27, 2011

Five cast members from the beloved television show “Mystery Science Theater 3000” will bring their movie mocking to the Mondavi Center at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 4.

Creator Joel Hodgson and cast members Trace Beaulieu, J. Elvis Weinsten, Frank Conniff and Mary Jo Pehl have reunited to riff on movies on DVD and in live shows under the name “Cinematic Titanic.”

At the Mondavi Center, they’ll sit beside a screen showing the 1972 science fiction nonclassic “Doomsday Machine,” happily savaging it for the audience.

From 1988 to 1999 on the channels now known as Comedy Central and Syfy, the Peabody Award-winning and Emmy-nominated “MST3K” featured a man and his robots forced to watch bad movies. In 2007, Time magazine named it one of its best 100 TV shows of all time.
