MEGA-BAD MOVIE NIGHT ON TOUR:
MEGA SHARK VS. GIANT OCTOPUS
(2009, 88 min, Dir. Jack Perez)
BUY TICKETS ($12 advance, $15 door)
Join the Academy of Natural Sciences after hours for a special off-site edition of Mega-Bad Movie Night. It’s the same live commentary you love about Mega-Bad Movie Night except held down the road at award-winning art/screening space PhilaMOCA!
That’s right, the Academy is on location with its famous Thursday-night event complete with quippy scientists, witty commentary, live animals, specimens, snacks, and, of course, a terrible “science” movie.
Enjoy refreshments and complimentary snacks, then take a seat to watch the film and take in the hilarious commentary on the movie’s many scientific absurdities, Mystery Science Theater 3000-style.
Strange things are afoot in the depths of the sea. First a passenger plane vanishes over the Pacific Ocean. Then an oil platform is obliterated. Marine biologist Emma MacNeil (Deborah Gibson) is dispatched to investigate the phenomena, and, with the help of Japanese scientist Seiji Shimada (Vic Chao), she makes a discovery that will rock the world: An enormous prehistoric shark and a giant octopus have been awakened from their icy slumbers — and they’re hungry.
Reception at 7 PM, Movie at 8 PM.
PLUS stick around after the event for a FREE “killer animal” themed installment of MOVIE MOVIE LIVE!, Philadelphia’s premiere, movie-themed, trivia-based, high-octane, interactive, comedy game show that is based on the podcast I Like to Movie Movie.
