DENVER COMIC CON OPENING CEREMONIES – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2016 – 7:00 PM, MAIN EVENTS/BELLCO THEATER
Denver Comic Con Opening Ceremonies is taking place Friday night after the main floor closes in the Bellco Theater Main Events hall. The event will open with guest speakers and special videos produced just for the occasion, featuring celebrity guests and special 2016 anniversary celebrations for Star Trek, Wonder Woman and Comic Superstars of the 70s, 80s & 90s!
Then, courtesy of the Alamo Drafthouse, the humorists from Mile High Sci Fi will provide commentary on the 1984 film, The Karate Kid, MST3K-style. If you’ve never seen it, you’ll want to check out why this cult classic made Denver Comic Con guest Ralph Macchio a teen heartthrob and embedded him into the American lexicon with such unforgettable phrases like, “Wax on, wax off” and “Sweep the Leg!” If you do remember it from way back when, you’ll see it in a whole new light as MHSF provides well-timed gags and commentary during the film. The event will be appropriate for all-ages and is free to anyone with a 3-day or Friday badge.
Plus, we’ll even have a few surprises. Guest Manu Intiraymi (Star Trek: Voyager) will announce his latest project, “The Circuit” and how you could be a part of the filming next year at DCC 2017!
Don’t miss this year’s Opening Ceremonies with Karate Kid or, as DCC Guests Martin Kove and William Zabka would say, we’ll show you “No Mercy!”
