Small plug for live-movie riffing in Kansas City, MO.

The Screenland Theatre at the Crossroads (www.screenland.com/events.html) (1656 Washington, Kansas City, Mo. 64108, 816.421.9700) will be instituting their inaugural Movie Roast with the riff-worthy film, "Hackers" on Friday, April 11th at 9:00 PM and Saturday, April 12th at 9:00 PM. The comedians that will be doing the riffing are Bess Wallerstein, Tommy Todd, and Erik Johnson from the local comedy troupe Counter Clockwise Comedy (http://counterclockwisecomedy.com/). Tickets are $8.

The Kansas City Star did a nice article (http://www.kansascity.com/entertainment/columnists/robert_w_butler/story/568216.html) on it.

I have no investment in the success of this venture - I don't know anyone at The Screenland or anyone in Counter Clockwise. I just think it's really neat that this particular art form is appearing again.

They should riff a Centron short. Centron was based in Lawrence KS (home of the KU Chickenhawks).

My uncle in Lawrence actually worked on a bunch of those shorts.

I wonder what distribution company handles Hackers, so I could contact them about doing an Englert show.
