What's that up in the sky? It's not a bird. Nor a plane. It's the Syfy channel's unexpected hit "Sharknado" and it's coming to Buffalo.
"Sharknado" will be shown at midnight on Aug. 2 in the Elmwood Regal and Transit Regal theaters. Tickets are $12.50 and can be purchased at the theater box office or through www.FathomEvents.com.
Ian Ziering and Tara Reid star in "Sharknado," a Syfy original movie about a freak hurricane that dumps thousands of killer sharks literally on to the inhabitants of Los Angeles. The film became a social media hit, registering about 5,000 tweets per minute during its July debut on Syfy. A sequel, "Sharknado 2" is planned for a 2014 premiere.
