The Mads are coming! The Mads are coming!

Calling all MSTies to the historic Hollywood Theater in Dormont for two nights of madcap cinematic entertainment you can’t find on any other local screen.

Fans of the cult television favorite “Mystery Science Theater 3000” won’t want to miss this two-night special, because each show features different content.

Join Frank Conniff and Trace Beaulieu — who both wrote for and acted in MST3K — as they screen some of the “worst movies ever made,” riffing on them live as they go. LOL until it hurts as the duo makes fun of the selected flicks in the same style as the Peabody Award-winning television series.

Be the first to see The Mads world premiere of the 1961 film, ”The Choppers” starring Arch Hall, Jr. Directed by Leigh Jason, the hot rod film follows a “gang of teenage greasers” as they wreak havoc on a small town.

Also featured in the lineup — and perfect for Halloween weekend — will be William Castle’s 1959 cult classic, “The Tingler,” starring horror icon, Vincent Price.

Meet-and-greet sessions with the show’s stars will be held before and after the movies.

Buy tickets now, because the last time The Mads were in town, both shows sold-out.
