Sci Fi Screening Room is a monthly showcase of off-beat sci-fi videos, featuring a variety of cult classics, bootleg favorites and TV rarities. Previous events including Batman Night! and Kiss Night! have been named as a Voice Choice, Time Out NY Best Bet, Gothamist pick and highlighted in the New York Times’ Urban Eye.
December’s show is a collection of songs and clips from sci-fi musicals, from Phantom of the Paradise to Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. The evening will celebrate the most mind-boggling numbers from campy favorites such as Forbidden Zone (1980) and Xanadu (1980), to lesser-know films like the Alan Arkin superhero parody The Return of Captain Invincible (1983) and Grease-meets-Swamp Thing oddity Voyage of the Rock Aliens (1987).
The two-hour video variety show will also include trivia, sing-alongs and TV clips from the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special and the obscure Star Wars-themed episode of The Donnie and Marie Show.
Kevin Maher (American Movie Classics’ The Sci Fi Department) and Raven Snook (Time Out New York) co-host the evening that promises to please geeks, gays and glitter hounds in equal measure.
