Creator Joel Hodgson and members of the original cast of the award-winning cult television show Mystery Science Theater 3000 return for more movie riffing, this time in front a live audience. The focus is on the 1966 Japanese sci-fi thriller War of the Insects, also known as Genocide, a rarely seen and poorly dubbed film in which a plane carrying an atomic bomb is attacked by a new, mad scientist-developed strain of killer bees. Should be explosively, stingingly uproarious. Friday, Oct. 15, at 8 p.m. Lisner Auditorium, The George Washington University, 730 21st St. NW. Tickets are $25 to $35. Call 202-994-6800 or visit lisner.org.
