From Rifftrax's Facebook page:
RiffTrax Live: "Manos" The Hands of Fate will be broadcast live from The Belcourt Theatre in Nashville, TN on August 16th. Tickets to The Belcourt go on sale next Friday April 20th. Don't miss your chance to see the guys in person!
Can't make it to Nashville? No worries. The show will also be simulcast to select movie theatres nationwide. Tickets go on sale at a future date. Stay tuned for more info!
When Cinematic Titanic did Santa Claus Conquers the Martians that as a let and when Rifftrax did Plan 9 From Outer Space that was a bit of a let down too. I'll have to see how up to it any of my friends are.
Too bad they won't be utilizing the HD restoration

MT@briansebby Yay! Will you be riffing on Manos with the @Manos_in_HD version?
@michaeljnelson No, not Ben Solovey's restoration, just a very nice print.
@michaeljnelson To clarify, our upcoming Fathom show is unrelated to Ben Solovey's "Manos" restoration: check out his progress here. http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...he-restoration
@michaeljnelson Rest assured, regarding our upcoming Manos Fathom show, we have secured a very good theatrical print, not the crappy VHS copy.
Especially since Legend Films will be putting this out on Blu-ray anyways it seems almost a waste to put out competing editions.
