Our first stretch goal has been unlocked!

Greetings, citizens of the Kingdom of Kickstartia!

Our first stretch goal has just been unlocked moments ago. You folks are awesome! Now, all of you fine backers at every backer level will get audio clips of Mike, Kevin and Bill doing their best takes of the Ice Cream Bunny and his fevered, maniacal laugh.

We're not wasting a single moment, however. These live shows are a ton of work, and we're already communicating with Fathom Events to get details in order, including nailing down our participating theaters and getting "creatives" such as posters designed. As loyal Kickstarter backers, you will be among the first to hear about everything relating to these events, and we'll keep you updated as much as possible.

More to come. Thanks again for all your support!

- Mike, Kevin, Bill, and the RiffTrax.com team

      Thank you for responding. I don't know if any of the three local cineplexes are part of the Fathom partnership...but if one is, and it's a matter of not opting in, just let me know whom to work on. It may be they just didn't know there'd be interest; I'd be glad to talk to them as a local. (Feel free to message me directly if need be.)

      @Mark Wasyk: Yes! We included this in our FAQ. Cineplex has interest in THE ROOM and MIAMI CONNECTION, but nothing more at this point just yet. As soon as we have confirmation we'll post it in a separate update.

      @Michael Hutchison: We will certainly look into it, but as with all of our shows it is up to each individual theater to opt in (and they need to be part of Fathom's partnership).

      @palenoue: Not at all! We're actively looking at a couple new serials that will hopefully work for us!

      I'm with Kevin Mayor. The Harry Potters are my favorites, and I miss their riffs on A-List movies. I mean, they've been going back to their roots lately, and are always spot-on funny, but part of what made Rifftrax so special was that they were riffing movies I already knew. Can't wait for TMNT!

      Any chance you're in discussions with Cineplex for Canada too? The Great White North is dying to see you guys again.

      I'm really hoping we get to the 200k mark and get the Harry Potter Deathly Hallows pt. 2 mp3 Rifftrax! I miss the good old days of getting mp3 Rifftrax for big budget movies all the time, and the epic journey of riffing all of Harry Potter MUST be completed!

      I don't know who I have to talk to...Fathom Events, my local theaters, or you guys...but I really wish you could find a theater to show these in Rochester, Minnesota. You're all Minnesotans, you know this is MN's second biggest metro area... can't you find some way for us to see these shows without driving 90 miles to the Twin Cities when we have work the next morning? (The only one we've caught so far was Starship Troopers, and we had to drive 60 miles to La Crosse for that. La Crosse! Hey, I grew up there, and I still think it's ridiculous that that dilapidated old beer town can get RiffTrax Live but Rochester can't!) Please see what you can do, and I promise to do my best to get the word out and pack that theater!

      So this means you'll be too busy to riff another movie serial like you did Batman? Bummer, I really enjoyed that.

      Kickstartia? Is that anywhere near Grammaria?

    9. RiffTrax: Mike, Bill & Kevin 5-time creator on February 25, 2015

      We will certainly try, Logan!

      Keep the pressure on Cineplex to not drag their heels this time and pick up all four shows (or at least some of the rebroadcasts even) for Canada!
