My sense of snarky sarcasm developed in part from watching the creator of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" and his robot cronies rip B-movies to shreds. I would spend the afternoon watching the hilarious, oddball show at a friends' house, and then we would try out our new skills, much to the chagrin of other moviegoers, at the latest action movie to hit local theaters. They might have been blockbusters, but serial explosions and bad acting bored us, and we considered them fair game.
MST3K's creator, Joel Hodgson, will visit the Dryden Theatre this Saturday, May 4, at 8 p.m., to present his new one-man show, "Riffing Myself," a presentation of stories, photos, videos, and notebook pages, concluding with premiere screenings of newly riffed short films.
Tickets for this special event are $20 for the performance only, and $50 for the performance and a post-screenings meet & greet. Reserve your tickets by calling 271-4090, or visit the box office at the Dryden Theatre (George Eastman House, 900 East Ave.). For more information, visit dryden.eastmanhouse.org.
