What if you and yours attended the biggest Rocky Horror Picture Show in North America on Halloween?
A screening of the 1975 film takes place at the Dollar Cinema on October 31, where guests are encouraged to dress up, shout, sing, dance, and throw special props around the room.
The film follows two young lovers, Brad and Janet, who go to visit their former teacher. On the way, their car breaks down and they are forced to drive up the road to a spooky castle to find a phone. Instead of finding a phone, they find a mad scientist, aka a “sweet transvestite from Transylvania,” who has chosen to bring his own creation to life.
Customers are encouraged to join us in shouting about the film. Traditionally, every time Brad’s name is mentioned you are supposed to scream “asshole” and every time Janet’s name is mentioned you have to scream “bitch”.
Dress up and spend a night.
When: October 31
Or: Dollar cinema, Square Décarie: 203-6900 Boulevard Décarie
