Sat, Apr 26: THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW
With The Bawdy Caste performing live
The longest-running midnight movie of all time stars Tim Curry as the kinky yet endearing 'transsexual from Transylvania' Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as his hapless guests Brad and Janet, Meat Loaf as motorcycle-riding rough trade, and author Richard O’Brien as the hunchbacked butler Riff Raff. It’s harmless musical fun—a delightful spoof of Hollywood horror movies and Old Dark House melodramas. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW was the first—and is still the best—interactive movie experience!

The Room is an electrifying American black comedy about love, passion, betrayal and lies, starring writer/director Tommy Wiseau as a successful banker with a great respect for—and dedication to—the people in his life, especially his future wife Lisa (Juliette Danielle). As the film depicts friendships and relationships in the lives of its five major characters, it raises life's real and most-asked question: 'Can you really trust anyone?' A midnight cult sensation, this quirky black comedy has been running for over 10 years in Los Angeles and has now taken the rest of the country by storm.

Apprehending the killer at all costs becomes a menacing task for Callahan, as it unravels into a cat-and-mouse game between the two men: One killer with a sinister, distasteful laughter; the other, a killer with just a plain dirty attitude behind his badge. Directed by Don Siegel and starring Clint Eastwood, Andrew Robinson, Harry Guardino.
