MST3K-style movie mocking of Twilight

Cinema 21
616 NW 21st Ave
Portland, OR 97209, US (map)



"A glorious pairing of movies and comedy"--Entertainment Weekly "A truly awesome experience!"--Gawker "Hilarious comedians in front of your eyes, riffing on the movie way better than you and your friends ever could hope to."--Seattlest "The Twilight series is a particular specialty of Master Pancake Theater" -- Popwatch "An essential Austin experience" -- Austin Monthly

Smart, fast, and bust-a-gut funny, Master Pancake Theater's comedy (think MST3K mixed with Beavis and Butthead) has lead to years of sold out shows at the legendary Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas. The members of Master Pancake provide live comedy along with the movie, as well as hilarious skits and competitions. Now they're coming to Seattle's SIFF Cinema at the Uptown for a live skewering of the Pacific Northwest's greatest contribution to cinema, TWILIGHT!

This Lost Boys rehash about a teenager who moves to a small town in the Pacific Northwest and falls in with the vampire crowd features Kristen Stewart as the new kid in town, and Robert Pattinson as the centuries-old kid in town. Kidding aside, the acting is surprisingly good: Stewart is masterful at her one facial expression, and Pattinson has perfected the pale dead-guy mystique that he honed as Cedric Diggory in the Harry Potter series. And if you thought you'd seen every vampires-playing-baseball cliché in the book, just wait 'til you see how director Catherine Hardwicke breathes new life into that tired set piece.

Come out to Cinema 21 and let the bloodletting begin as Master Pancake sucks the life out of this preposterously ghastly modern teen "classic"!
