‘Plan’ on it

RiffTrax offers a second chance to see them eviscerate a shlock sci-fi classic.

Plan one: Any self-respecting fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should go see the RiffTrax gang do its thing tomorrow night to Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space. Not for nothing has the 1959 sci-fi turkey starring Bela Lugosi and Bela Lugosi’s chiropractor been dubbed the “worst movie ever made.”

The 7:30 p.m. Thursday showing isn’t live, but it was four years ago, and if you didn’t see it then, trust me: It was hilarious.

Or don’t trust me and see it yourself. That’s what I’m urging you to do, anyway, and you may do so at either AMC Quail Springs Mall 24, 2501 W. Memorial, or Tinseltown USA, 6001 N. Martin Luther King.

COVER STORY: Ferris doesn’t take this day off

Questionable choices can lead to great memories, especially on St. Patrick’s Day.


Devon Green
When one is a local celebrity, he or she will often be tapped to do a lot of silly stuff. When the local celebrity is named Ferris O’Brien, St. Patrick’s Day plans are pretty much guaranteed for life.
