Mega-Bad Movie Night

Say it Rah-shay By Jun 22, 2015 8 Comments

Our movie hosts for the evening. There was some really bad science in this movie and the hosts did a wonderful job breaking it down and poking fun at all of the holes in the theories.

Favorite line from the night, after something utterly ridiculous happened on screen, “Because Science!”

Podcaster, actor, writer (and more) Kennedy Allen, Christine Danowsky, coordinator of all things camp at the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University and Ellen Wildner is a senior at Drexel University studying biology.

This was the first time there was an all-female panel and they were hilarious. Think Mystery Science 3000 but with real time wise cracks and audience participation.


It was such fun night out! Open bar and snacks and totally NOT you average date night or girls night out! Add in that it’s adults only, which made it a bit more special and parking is free after 8 on the Parkway!

    The idea of bad movie night is so much fun! I don’t think I would have touched those maggots either. Yuck!

  3. Definitely an evening I would not expect either. Hey this is something new to add to your list of adventures.

    Looks like it was a fun night. I would’ve passed on the maggots too but the obstacle course looks like it was a good time.

  5. Joanne Greco says:

    That looks like such a fun way to spend an evening! I would have passed on touching maggots also!

    Wow, I’m wishing I was you in there, everything seem so exiting and fun. However, the maggots for medicine would have left a nasty taste in my mouth lol great post

  7. This looks like a really cool experience! The Fly was the first rated R movie that I snuck in to see. It was so gross and so good!
