The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Hosted by the Geekenders!)

A different set of jaws.

Let’s do the Time Warp… Again!

Join us as we say “Good-bye, 2022!” with our final Friday Late Night Movie of the year – one of the most notorious cult-movie experiences you can possibly have in a darkened theatre – THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW.

This cult-classic rock musical has been giving absolute pleasure to adoring audiences spaced out on sensations like they’re under sedation for over four decades, and there’s absolutely no better time to see and experience this pop-culture landmark than the the way it is meant to be seen – on the big screen, in the dark, and with a raucous Rio Theatre 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 final Friday Late Night Movie screening of 2022 even more awesome?!?! Vancouver’s fabulous Geekenders will be on-hand to host and guide all the Virgins (and veterans!) through all the do’s-and-don’ts of this monumentally 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, of course,  very welcome, but pleasewhatever you doDO NOT BRING RICE!
