The stars of RiffTrax - best known for their groundbreaking hit show "Mystery Science Theater 3000" - are set to kick off 2013 with encores of two of the most uproarious episodes of the "RiffTrax Live" cinema series.

"The Best of RiffTrax Live: 'Manos' The Hands of Fate" will hit select movie theaters nationwide on Thursday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. local time, followed one week later by "The Best of RiffTrax Live: Plan 9 from Outer Space" on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m. local time. Join comedians Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett as they fire their patented wisecracking commentary on these gold standards of bad movies.

Tickets for "The Best of RiffTrax Live: 'Manos' The Hands of Fate" and "Plan 9 from Outer Space" are available at participating theater box offices and online at www.FathomEvents.com. The events will be broadcast to nearly 300 select movie theaters across the country through NCM's exclusive Digital Broadcast Network. For a complete list of theater locations and prices visit the NCM Fathom Events website (theaters and participants are subject to change).

"I'm really excited because it's not every day you get a chance to see the worst movie ever made, and then a week later see a movie even worse than that. Truly, you owe it to yourself to see these classics of the genre," said Nelson, RiffTrax creator and former host of the Emmy-nominated, Peabody Award-winning "Mystery Science Theater 3000."

Originally broadcast to theaters in August 2012, "RiffTrax Live: 'Manos' The Hands of Fate" brings Torgo and other crazy characters back by popular demand. Riffing on one of the worst films of all time, this one-night encore gives fans another chance to see the comedians of RiffTrax roasting the film on the big screen. The event also features two shorts, including the introduction of that lovable loser Norman.

The first Rifftrax Fathom Event broadcast to theaters in 2009, the "worst movie ever made" is back on the big screen as the stars of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" riff on the classic flick. Their hilarious jokes tackle the gold standard of bad movies in this rebroadcast. Directed by Ed Wood, "Plan 9 from Outer Space" features cheap sets, inept aliens and side-splitting dialogue. This one-night event also features a short, as well as a musical performance by Jonathan Coulton.

"Some movies are so bad that one night of riffing is just not enough," said Shelly Maxwell, executive vice president of NCM Fathom Events. "Audiences can experience a RiffTrax event for the first time - or relive the laughter - with these two hilarious events in select U.S. theaters."
