Fathom Entertainment announced two sci-fi events which will be shown in theaters across the country. I’ve become familiar with Fathom Entertainment’s showings as a result of their Star Trek: The Next Generation screenings which celebrated that series’ Blu-Ray releases. Seeing ‘The Best of Both Worlds’ on the big screen was a once in a lifetime experience – and was incredible. Today’s announcements were screenings of the 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special – ‘Day of the Doctor’ and ‘Rifftrax Live: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians’
The 50th Anniversary Doctor Who special features both Doctors #10 and #11 and is presented by BBC AMERICA and NCM Fathom Events in RealD™3D to over 300 select theaters on Monday, November 25 at 7:30pm (local time), and includes specially shot introductions and “The Day of The Doctor: Behind The Lens,” a 10 minute behind-the-scenes featurette directly following the special.

“RiffTrax Live: Santa Claus Conquers the Martians” will be shown at more than 570 select cinemas nationwide. For one night only, join Michael J. Nelson, Kevin Murphy and Bill Corbett (best known for the groundbreaking “Mystery Science Theater 3000”)— for their unique take on the family holiday ‘classic’ LIVE on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 8:00 p.m. ET / 7:00 p.m. CT and tape delayed at 7:00 p.m. MT and 8:00 p.m PT/HI/AK.

Personally, I cannot wait for ‘Day of the Doctor’ – if you want to catch it on the big screen, you should grab your tickets quick!
