[B-MOVIE] [CAMPY] [DRESS UP!]
This campy cult classic is the most popular midnight movie of all time. A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite. The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.
You are not allowed to bring your own props. Prop kits are available at the show. Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your “scotts” tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner…toss it), will be available at the show for $4. YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.
Doors open at 10:30pm. Virgin sacrifice before the show. The movie begins at Midnight.
