The Titans are shown standing or seated on scaffolding and filmed in silhouette in the studio-recorded {{DVD}}s; on the live [=DVDs=] and shows they sit at music stands with their scripts (or more recently, an iPad) in front of them. They riff bad movies, in the manner of ''[=MST3K=]''. The actors essentially play themselves as they participate in an experiment for some unknown, possibly shadowy corporation or military force. The story currently provided to the cast is that there is a tear in the "electron scaffolding" that threatens all digital media in the world. Their experience doing ''[=MST3K=]'' is key to the organization's plans. The riffing for each film is recorded to a "nanotated disc" and inserted into a "Time Tube" by Hodgson that :descends into the frame at the end of every episode. The unknown organization is very firm on keeping the cast focused on their duties, providing no time frame for completion and requiring them to stay within the facilities at all times. They apparently have massive resources and an autonomous military force, which they use to keep the cast in line. As of now, the cast is inquisitive of the true purpose of the experiments but have no major problems as, aside from having to watch bad movies, they are well-treated. There are often host segments on the studio [=DVDs=], but unlike the ''[=MST3K=]'' ones, the players remain in silhouette in the theater.

** Frank in general is most prone to this by bursting out laughing at other riffer's lines or just barely making it through some of his own.

* TakeThat: During the open of ''Film/SantaClausConquersTheMartians'', Joel mentions that they originally thought it was hilarious that Creator/PiaZadora was in this movie, but he can't remember why now. (Either a TakeThat at Zadora or a TakeThatMe for making such a big deal out of it in the first place.)

** Trace pulls one when he learns that they'll be riffing on ''Film/SantaClausConquersTheMartians'' and attempts to run away, only to be dragged kicking and screaming back into the theater.

* AntiHumour: A preshow sequence had Frank Conniff use about half a dozen fat jokes on embattled New Jersey governor Chris Cristie ("I don't want to say Chris Christie eats large portions of food, but all of his silverware was designed by Claes Oldenburg"), followed by this gem:
-->No, but seriously folks, when Chris Chistie sits around the house, he really passes laws that hurt working Americans.

Compare and contrast ''Podcast/RiffTrax'', which features a different set of ''[=MST3K=]'' alumni. The main difference between the two is that ''[=RiffTrax=]'' targets recently released movies while Cinematic Titanic riffs on obscure B-movies similar to what you'd find on the original ''[=MST3K=]''. Also, Cinematic Titanic has a continuous storyline while [=RiffTrax=] does not. (That storyline is not referenced in the live shows or the [=DVDs=] recorded from them.)

Cinematic Titanic is a comedy project launched in 2007 by ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' creator Joel Hodgson and featuring many of that beloved show's alumni. The Cinematic Titans are Joel Hodgson (Joel Robinson on ''[=MST3K=]'') Trace Beaulieu (Dr. Forrester, Crow T. Robot), Josh Elvis Weinstein (Dr. Erhardt, Tom Servo) Frank Conniff (TV's Frank) and Mary Jo Pehl (Pearl Forrester). On April 21, 2012 Dave "Gruber" Allen (formerly of the comedy trio The Higgins Boys and Gruber), who'd done the audience warm-up for the group during their live performances, filled in for Weinstein for a show in Princeton, NJ.

The Titans are standing or seated on scaffolding and filmed in silhouette in the studio recorded {{DVD}}s; on the live [=DVDs=] and shows they sit at music stands with their scripts (or more recently, an iPad). They riff bad movies, as ''[=MST3K=]''. The actors essentially play themselves as they participate in an experiment for some unknown, possibly shadowy corporation or military force. The story currently provided to the cast is that there is a tear in the "electron scaffolding" that threatens all digital media in the world. Their experience doing ''[=MST3K=]'' is key to the organization's plans. The riffing for each film is recorded to a "nanotated disc" and inserted into a "Time Tube" by Hodgson that :descends into the frame at the end of every episode. The unknown organization is very firm on keeping the cast focused on their duties, providing no time frame for completion and requiring them to stay within the facilities at all times. They apparently have massive resources and an autonomous military force, which they use to keep the cast in line. As of now, the cast is inquisitive of the true purpose of the experiments but have no major problems as, aside from having to watch bad movies, they are well-treated. There are often host segments on the studio [=DVDs=], but unlike the ''[=MST3K=]'' ones, the players remain in silhouette in the theater.
