Like MST3K? Watch me watch Atlas Shrugged!

Sat October 5 at 10:00 PM, The Tank
151 West 46th Street, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
In the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and RiffTrax, comedian Matt Filipowicz and I will spend one memorable evening performing Atlas Riffed, a live, second-by-second running commentary on the notoriously awful film adaptation of Ayn Rand's libertarian screed: Atlas Shrugged: Part One. We're going to make one of the worst films ever made actually fun to watch and slowly but surely advance our covert crypto-communist agenda on an unsuspecting public - and I want you to be there.
We'll be performing at beloved alt-theater space The Tank - and here's the deets:

The Tank
151 w. 46th St. (b/t 6th and 7th Ave)
8th Floor
New York, NY 10036
By subway: NRQ to 49th Street or BDFM to Rockefeller Center.

I'd love to get drinks with folks after, or even grab a bite before - let me know what you think!

That sounds like great fun! I'm also up for meeting up before/after.

Utterly terrifying. Being drunk sounds like a prerogative.

YES. Oh man, this sounds so tremendously up my alley. Do tickets cost anything?

I'm also up for meeting before or after.

Dear god, I tried to do this with a friend of mine last weekend. Trust me when I say that pre-gaming is in order. Not going to be able to make it, which honestly feels like dodging a bullet.

Pssssh. Atlas Shrugged: Part Two is by far the worse movie.

(Why yes, I did see both films on opening night. Why d'you ask?)

Hey y'all,
Would love to get drinks and/or a bite beforehand - anytime 6-9 pm would be great. Any particular favorites not *too* far away?

I'm a big fan of the Hell's Kitchen dive-bar Rudy's, which is next to Two Boots and a whole mess of Hell's Kitchen thai restaurants - but I'm really open to whatever folks wanna do. :)

I'll need to head to the theater around 8:40 to prep for the show, but I'll be at Two Boots (625 9th Ave) at 8:00, and from there whoever shows up can head over to Rudy's next door for a few drinks. (Would just start at Rudy's, but if you've ever been there you know it can be a surprisingly tough place to find someone in.)

Looking forward to it!

And I will be with (The Rt Hon.) MP. Looking forward to seeing y'all!

Sorry to change plans so late in the game. I did so want to attend, but a friend's mother died so I'm heading over to be with him. Have fun everybody.

So sorry to hear that.

We are at Two Boots. I'm in zebra print and Josh is in a Toxic Avenger tshirt.

We unexpectedly have to head to the theater earlier than anticipated. We'll see you there!
