*If OCTAMAN is sold out, STAR RAIDERS is being performed live at the Belcourt the previous day (April 17th) before it broadcasts to theaters nationwide on June 6th.


Deep in the Mexican jungle, a legendary creature lurks in a radioactive swamp. Is it a man? Is it an octopus? No, it’s OCTAMAN! ...Okay it’s a man in an octopus suit, but he’s really angry and goes on a light killing spree.

A scientific expedition sets out to study this atomic mutant and stop it before it kills again. They’re not very good at it because Octoman kills quite a lot, probably because THE DUMB SCIENTISTS KEEP STEALING ITS BABIES!!  Seems there’s no stopping the monster until it develops a crush on the plucky lady scientist Susan Lowry (Pier Angeli) and does what all mutant sea creatures like to do - knocks her out and carries her away. Will the rest of the team be able to rescue Susan before Octaman picks them all off one by one? Looks pretty doubtful! That’s the thrill of Octaman!

Directed by the writer of Creature From the Black Lagoon and featuring costumes and effects by a very young Rick Baker, Octaman is a wonderfully awful rubber monster B-movie.

Join Bill, Mike and Kevin live and in person at the Belcourt Theatre, as they risk life and limb to deliver the laughs from the clutches of OCTAMAN!


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.
