The famously bad indie film Birdemic gets a wide release tonight, but not as the filmmaker intended. The folks at Rifftrax (MST3K veterans) are doing a live simulcast mocking the movie.

Regal City North 14, 2600 N. Western Ave., Regal Webster Place 11, 1471 W. Webster Ave.; Showplace ICON, 150 W. Roosevelt Rd.; and Century 12/CinéArts, 1715 Maple Ave. in Evanston are hosting screenings. Prices vary; the screening is at 7pm at all locations.
