I didn’t grow up in Kent, but I understand that there was a long standing tradition back in the 1970’s and 80’s of showing the Rocky Horror Picture Show at midnight. And like bell-bottoms, after taking an extended hiatus, the midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show is back at the Kent Stage this Saturday.
Here’s the Press Release from the Kent Stage:
An old tradition coming back
Rocky Horror Picture Show returns to Kent
The Midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show was a staple of entertainment in Kent in the 70’s and 80’s. After not being shown downtown for many years, this Saturday October 27 @ 8PM, 10PM, & Midnight, The Rocky Horror Picture Show returns to the movie theater in downtown Kent when the Kent Stage opens it’s doors for this Halloween treat. The original film will be presented on the same night as the Downtown Kent Halloween celebration. Tickets are $5.00 at the door. Doors open at 5PM. Costumes optional.
