What do you get when a gigantic killer moth and two tiny women are on a remote island together? A love story, of course!

The guys who make movies funny – Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett – are back in cinemas to riff Toho’s 1961 monster classic, Mothra, in a hilarious two-night event.

Mothra tells the beloved (and bizarre!) story of a group of explorers who travel to a remote island, kidnap two tiny women, thereby inciting the wrath of a giant larva, which then swims the ocean and cocoons itself in downtown Tokyo before emerging as the titular Mothra, destroying everything in her path.

Fly into the flame with the RiffTrax guys for an unforgettable evening of mam(moth) laughs and riffing!
