The Gentlemen Hecklers Present: Krull (1983)

Come celebrate five glorious years of The Gentlemen Hecklers (aka your friendly local comedy trio who recently contributed some killer jokes for the latest season of Mystery Science Theater 3000) at the Rio Theatre with a very special anniversary screening of KRULL, a perfectly cheesy slice of 80’s sci-fi fantasy. Also: Liam Neeson!
“On the planet of Krull, an evil creature called the Beast decimates the world’s army and kidnaps the lovely Princess Lyssa (Lysette Anthony), who is destined to become queen. Her brave beau, Prince Colwyn (Ken Marshall), leads a motley band of warriors, including Ergo (David Battley) and Kegan (Liam Neeson), to rescue his beloved. However, before he can face the Beast, Colwyn must locate a mystical weapon known as the Glaive, which he can use to slay the hideous villain.”

Let The Gentlemen Hecklers provide you with their unique brand of live, hilarious commentary – for the best cheesy movies! Eric Fell, Patrick Maliha, and Shaun Stewart are Vancouver’s masters of movie riffing, making so-bad-they’re-good movies even better – by talking you through them.

David Lynch’s Dune

“He who controls the Spice, controls the universe!” The Rio Theatre‘s series of summer classics continues with a notoriously polarizing title from the brilliant auteur David Lynch: DUNE. Based on Frank Herbert‘s epic novel, the story was famously deemed “unadaptable” for years before Lynch’s infamous release in 1984. Mocked by some and revered by others, DUNE… Continue Reading
