Screenland Crossroads starts movie roasts with 'Cheap Shots'

Following on the heels of a whirlwind of changes at the Screenland Crossroads (under new ownership), a new regular show has been launched at the theater. A show that promises to mock the movies you love. Starting with its first announced riff, “The Craft”.

“Cheap Shots” is a group of Kansas City comedians, writers, actors and improvers that have banded together to riff on the movies; both beloved and reviled. “Cheap Shots” has pulled together some of the very best local talent to pull off the huge task of targeting a different movie every month. In the spirit of Mystery Science Theater 3000, the references and jokes will come fast and furious and audiences should be prepared to keep up.

“Cheap Shots” will be performing monthly at the Screenland Crossroads. Under new ownership, the theater has a full service bar and lobby area, 150 seat theater, and a retro arcade filled with vintage cabinets you won’t find anywhere else.
