RiffTrax Live – Time Chasers
Location: See Description for Theaters
Date: 2016-05-05
Start Time: 19:00
End Time: 21:00
Description: A LIVE never-before-seen riffing on the sci-fi cult “classic” Time Chasers, from the Tennessee Performing Arts Center James K. Polk Theater in Nashville, TN.

Fathom Events and RiffTrax.com® are excited to bring Time Chasers to the big screen for a LIVE riff on Thursday, May 5 at 8:00 p.m. CT/ 7:00 p.m., followed by a special re-broadcast on Tuesday, May 17 at 7:30 p.m. (local time).

The guys who make movies funny, Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett, revisit one of the most beloved and oft-quoted films of the MST3K era, Time Chasers, the story of a man named Nick who turns his airplane into a time machine with the aid of his beloved Commodore 64. With it he woos the woman of his dreams, despite the fact that he doesn’t own a car and his wardrobe consists only of a pair of jeans and a threadbare t-shirt from Castleton State College. The two run afoul of GenCorp, an evil mega-corporation run out of the mezzanine lobby of a small local library in Rutland, Vermont. Its ruthless CEO, J.K. (you can tell he’s evil because his hair is gelled back) will stop at nothing to steal Nick’s priceless secret.

Join the guys for a raucous evening with a true classic — plus a hilarious new short, a RiffTrax fan-favorite tradition.
