Denver Comic Con’s “Opening Ceremonies” are June 17, 2016, 7pm, in the Bellco Theater Main Events hall. The event opens with guest speakers and special videos. According to the opening ceremonies description:

Then, courtesy of the Alamo Drafthouse, the humorists from Mile High Sci Fi will provide commentary on the 1984 film, The Karate Kid, MST3K-style. If you’ve never seen it, you’ll want to check out why this cult classic made Denver Comic Con guest Ralph Macchio a teen heartthrob and embedded him into the American lexicon with such unforgettable phrases like, “Wax on, wax off” and “Sweep the Leg!” If you do remember it from way back when, you’ll see it in a whole new light as MHSF provides well-timed gags and commentary during the film.

The event will be appropriate for all-ages and is free to anyone with a 3-day or Friday badge.

Don’t miss this year’s Opening Ceremonies with Karate Kid or, as DCC Guests Martin Kove and William Zabka would say, we’ll show you “No Mercy!”

While some tickets are sold out, and autograph session pre-sales are no longer available, some autographs or photo ops may still be purchased during the event. On-site purchases are cash-only.

The Colorado Convention Center, and the Bellco Theater, are located at700 14th Street, in Denver, CO.
