Bring a mask! They’re required when distancing cannot be maintained.

The sweetest transvestite of them all is coming to the Colonial Theater! Don’t miss The Rocky Horror Picture Show, screening for one night only on Thursday, October 21, 2021 at 7:30PM.

Fellas, it’s time to don the fishnet and lipstick; we’re doing the Time Warp (again) with Tim Curry and crew!

If you’ve come to past show Rocky Horror shows, you know what’s coming…and you won’t want to miss out!

If you’re new to RHPS, there’s no better way to see it for the first time! Even if the movie isn’t your cup of tea, the people watching can’t be beat.

Ok, let’s lay a few ground rules. Throwing stuff is ok, but we’ve got to keep it limited to dry items.  So bring the toilet paper, the toast, the newspapers, the rubber gloves, the rice, the confetti (NOT glitter!), etc. But leave wet items at home, including hot dogs, prunes, and water guns. And also no candles (it is a crowded theater, after all. Just use your cell phone light).

Fair warning! This isn’t your normal movie screening where folks sit quietly and watch a show. There will be a LOT of call and response, throwing things, and dancing around. Don’t say no one warned you!

Never seen RHPS? Hmmm…how to explain it to a virgin. This may get you started:

After Janet accepts Brad’s marriage proposal, the happy couple drive away from Denton, Ohio, only to get lost in the rain. They stumble upon the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite who is holding the annual convention of visitors from the planet Transsexual. Frank-N-Furter unveils his creation, a young man named Rocky Horror, who fears the doctor and rejects his sexual advances. When Frank-N-Furter announces that he is returning to the galaxy Transylvania, Riff Raff the butler and Magenta the maid declare that they have plans of their own. (An audience participation film). –From IMDB
