Kevin Geeks Out is the comedy-variety show hosted by writer-comedian Kevin Maher—a confabulation of vintage film clips and videos, new finds, guest experts, games and curiosities. To geek out with Kevin you don’t need to be a geek, you just need to love cool stuff. 

This month, Kevin Geeks Out about RIP-OFF CINEMA, chronicling the “knockbusters” that attempt to capture the magic of E.T., KING KONG, War of the Worlds and other big-budget blockbusters. The two-hour cultural cavalcade includes trivia, snacks, prizes and guest speakers presenting rare film footage and TV clips you won’t find on YouTube or Netflix. Kevin is joined by some very special guests: 

  • Filmmaker Matthew Glasson explores the gritty legacy of Night of the Living Dead rip-offs.
  • Cult-film lover Tenebrous Kate shares oddly familiar clips from Turkish cinema.
  • Tom Blunt (host of the MEET THE LADY series) looks back on a lesser-known Rosemary's Baby clone, Sharon's Baby.
  • Webby-winning Comedian Rusty Ward looks back on James Cameron’s inspiration for The Terminator and the bitter lawsuit that followed. 
  • Writer M. Sweeney Lawless skewers Konga, the British KING KONG.
  • Comic Book Blogger Nick Nadel presents a montage of Super-hero knock-offs.
  • Plus host Kevin Maher celebrates Gamera, a kid-friendly Godzilla wanna-be.
  • Plus trivia games and prizes that will include knock-off products.

Part of the monthly series Kevin Geeks Out and this month's movie series Rip Off Cinema: Italian Edition.

Tickets: $10, Film Club Member: $6.
