CA – Mystery Science Theater 3000 Signing

Press Release:

Amoeba Hollywood is excited to welcome Mystery Science Theater 3000 cast members JONAH RAY, FELICIA DAY, and HAMPTON YOUNT for an in-store signing of the new soundtrack Thursday, November 30th at 6pm!

To attend: purchase “MST3K: The Return – Music From The Netflix Original Series” (Shout Factory!) CD in-store only at Amoeba Hollywood on 11/30 to get the album signed and meet the cast.

Stranded in space, a man and his robot sidekicks are forced to watch cheesy movies and cope through laughter—and song! Music has always played a key role in Mystery Science Theater 3000’s irreverent brand of humor, and never is that more evident than in this collection of songs, incidental music and instrumental bumpers from the show’s triumphant return season. Regular cast members Jonah Ray, Felicia Day, Hampton Yount, Baron Vaughn and Rebecca Hanson are joined by special guest stars Neil Patrick Harris and Mark Hamill in transcendent musical moments, all capped by Har Mar Superstar’s dynamic update of the main theme. This is essential listening for MSTies everywhere.

MYSTERY SCIENCE THEATER 3000 Home Entertainment Series

The Mystery Science Theater 3000 series was created by Joel Hodgson and produced by Best Brains, Inc. After a year on KTMA TV in Minneapolis, its national broadcast life began in 1989 on the Comedy Channel (later to become Comedy Central), where it ran for seven seasons. The show’s final three seasons aired on the Sci-Fi Channel.  The premise of the series features a hapless man who is trapped by mad scientists on a satellite in space and forced to watch old B-movies of questionable worth. To keep sane, he’s built two robot sidekicks, and together they do a running commentary on the films, affectionately mocking their flaws with inspired wisecracks and acting as a demented movie theater peanut gallery. Series creator Hodgson originally played the stranded man, Joel Robinson.  When he left in 1993, series head writer Mike Nelson replaced him as the new B-movie victim Mike Nelson, and continued in the role for the rest of the show’s run.  The format proved to be popular. During its eleven years and 198 episodes (including one feature film), MST3K attained a loyal fan base and critical acclaim. The series won a Peabody Award in 1993, and was nominated for writing Emmys® in 1994 and 1995. (Select home entertainment releases available to own at NYCC)
