Oct. 23--Most theaters don't want you talking or texting during the movie. Just ask Madonna, who recently earned a lifetime ban from Alamo Drafthouse for texting during a flick in New York.
The no-talking rule gets thrown out at 8:30 p.m. Friday when "Halloween III: Season of the Witch" is shown at Screenland Crown Center, third floor of the shopping center, 2450 Grand Blvd.
This one-night event is called a movie roast, which will remind you of that old show "Mystery Science Theater 3000."
As the movie plays, three or four local improv performers will add their own running, snarky, ad-libbed commentary. "Roasts are bitchy, kitschy and always unpredictable," promises Fire Roasted Films, the evening's sponsor.
The performers -- "improv performers, comedians, actors, the occasional drag queen" -- all love cheesy movies. None of them can keep their mouths shut during a movie, either.
Because things can get a little raunchy, no one under 17 is admitted.
Tickets are $8 online and $10 at the door. Call 816-545-8034.
If you'd like to join the lineup of performers, or suggest upcoming movies -- think best of the worst -- send email to email@example.com.
