Mile High Sci-Fi: Superman II
120 Minute Running Time
Every month at the Starz FilmCenter experience the ultimate in LIVE comedic restoration. Three local comics (Matt Vogl, Harrison Raines and Chris Atencio), armed only with their wits and three gleaming microphones, take on some of Hollywood's most questionable films. A unique film experience is yours for the taking when you believe in the magic of Mile High Sci-Fi! MHSF is decidedly ADULT humor. If you decide to bring the kids, get ready to cover their ears.

1980: A simpler time.
Before Margot Kidder went completely cuckoo, before Christopher Reeve’s “horse incident” and before Gene Hackman whored himself for Lowes, they cranked out the seen-one-seen-em-all Superman series.
In the second installment Superman faces a trio of misfit outlaws from his home planet that, to be perfectly honest, look a lot more like a bad 80’s German techno band than bad guys trying to take over the planet. Watch out Kraftwerk, there’s a new sheriff in town. Unfortunately for earth, Superman traded his super powers for a romp with Lois Lane. Hey, he’s a guy, okay? In the end he must choose between the woman he loves and the planet that needs him. Ohhh, the suspense!!!
Oh, and NO, sci-fi super geeks, this is NOT the Richard Donner cut. Stop whining.
