‘MST3K Live’ date postponed to Feb. 6

Dan Webster

The news is coming late, but here it is: the "Mystery Science Theater Live" event scheduled for tonight at the First Interstate Center for the Arts has been postponed.

The new date: 7:30 p.m. Feb. 6.

The postponement is said to be because of weather. Anyone who has purchased tickets should hold onto them. They will be honored at the new time and date.

As most fans know, MST3K — as the series has come to be known — was created in 1988 by Joel Hodgson. The conceit involves a janitor who has been kidnapped and forced to watch cheesy Sci-Fi B movies aboard the spaceship Satellite of Love.

As the series website explains, "To stave off the boredom of this existence, he creates himself a plethora of robot pals to watch along with him and create new plotlines and scripts as the movie plays."

Writers on the new series include Elliot Kalan, Joel Mchale and Dana Gould.

So the bad news is that the event has been postponed. The good news is MST3K Live contains same snarky and clever, if adolescent, humor.
