The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Let’s do the Time Warp… Again!

Join us for one of the most notorious cult-movie experiences you can possibly have in a darkened theatre! For over four decades, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has been giving absolute pleasure to adoring audiences spaced out on sensations like they’re under sedation. See it the way it was meant to be seen – on the big screen, in the dark, and with a raucous Rio audience who are just as into it as you are. Whether you’re a Virgin or a veteran, you’ll have a blast!

You know what’s going to make our screenings even more awesome?!?! They are being hosted by members of Vancouver’s fabulous Geekenders, who will also be on-hand to guide all the Virgins (and veterans!) through all the do’s-and-don’ts of this experiential show.

As always, costumes and audience participation are highly encouraged! (In other words: Prizes! Here’s your chance to go all out and let your freak flag fly, people.) The ticket price includes a fun prop bag, too. Your own props are also very welcome, but pleasewhatever you doDO NOT BRING RICE!!

Note: We have not screened THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW in almost two years! Over the course of the pandemic, this has been one of our most requested titles, and we are thrilled to bring this beloved cult-classic back to our screen for audiences this Rockytober! It’s astounding, and time has never been more fleeting – advance tickets are STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.
