RiffTrax Live roars back into theaters nationwide this summer with one of our most requested films, Rick Sloane’s 1988 rubber creature classic HOBGOBLINS.

At an abandoned old movie studio, security guards keep getting mysteriously murdered. The mystery: Why are there so many security guards for an abandoned old movie studio?! But forget that; the real secret is Hobgoblins! Cheap rubber puppets from outer space! Who vaguely resemble Gremlins! But not enough to bring on a lawsuit! Their power: they’ll make your wildest fantasies come true, and then you die, laughingly and embarrassingly.

The studio’s new security guard, Kevin (no relation) quickly learns the secret of the Hobgoblins, and even more quickly lets them escape. Now it’s up to the inept Kevin and a group of sexually-obsessed pals to thwart the Hobgoblins before they take over the world, or at least various neighborhoods in the Greater Los Angeles Area!

Back in the era of Mystery Science Theater 3000, Hobgoblins nearly destroyed Mike and the Bots. But the combined powers of Bill, Mike and Kevin will turn this wretched chunk of cheese into comedy gold! LIVE in person at The Belcourt Theatre!


RiffTrax Live Line Instructions: RiffTrax will use a line hold system to let everyone check in and reserve a spot in line, then leave and come back later to your held spot.

Starting at 12 noon, people can check into the Belcourt's box office and present their ticket. You will then be issued a card with your line spot number. The number on your card dictates your spot in line.

Go out and relax or go grab something to eat knowing your spot in line is reserved.

Return to the Belcourt with your ticket and your line spot card no later than 6:00 pm and get in line based on your number. Doors open at 6:20. Someone from the Belcourt will be on site to assist you if need be, but you should be able to find your spot by talking with other people in line. It’s just like Southwest Airlines but with actual comedy!

Note: If you lose your line spot card you will lose your spot in line and have to go to the end of the line. If there are more than one of you, please bring ALL the tickets to get multiple cards, one card will be issued per ticket. The line spot card does not replace your ticket so please hold onto your ticket and bring it with you when you come back to the Belcourt.
