Our award-winning resident performance troupe K.A.O.S. returns for their monthly invasion of The Frida, as they bring 1975 cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show to life with their celebrated all-costumed, all-choreographed, all-leg-kicking live shadowcast!
NOTE: Due to this event's live, interactive, and audience-facing elements, performance troupe K.A.O.S. has asked that masks be required at this event in consideration of the safety of both their performers and their audience. Please ensure you bring a mask to this event, and wear it throughout the show with exception to while taking a bite or sip in your seat. Thank you for doing your part to help keep K.A.O.S. healthy and nimble!
Director Jim (Don't squeeze the…) Sharman's cult classic stars Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon as Brad and Janet, two virginal small-town lovers whose car breaks down in the shadows of a creepy old castle, where they encounter an odd collective of “unconventional conventionalists” gathered to witness transvestite scientist's Dr. Frank-N-Furter's latest creation – a muscular man named Rocky. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including tap-dancing Columbia, rocking biker Eddie, and of course, the castle's “Sweet Transvestite” himself, Frank-N-Furter!
Adapted from the 1973 stage musical by Richard O'Brien, this glam cult classic is a cinematic experience unlike any other. Sing-along (and shout-along!) to The Rocky Horror Picture Show, a classic that still packs houses almost 50 years since its release! Get your tickets now before it sells out!
Doors open at 11:00pm and the official K.A.O.S. preshow starts at 11:30pm! Movie at midnight! Reminder -- masks required for this month's performance!
CODE OF CONDUCT:
32 Sounds NYR
With Green's immersive approach, explore the elemental phenomenon of sound and its power to bend time, cross borders, and profoundly shape our perception of the world around us.
Fresh from its premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival, 32 Sounds promises a revolutionary experience that invites your senses to be redefined.
Megan (Natasha Lyonne) is an all-American girl. A cheerleader. She has a boyfriend. But Megan doesn't like kissing her boyfriend very much. And she's pretty touchy with her cheerleader friends. Her conservative parents worry that she may be (gasp!) a lesbian and send her off to "sexual redirection" school, where she must, with other lesbians and gays, learn how to be straight, unless Megan encourages her peers to reject the cause for conversion.
Using intensely saturated costume and production design to illustrate its deconstruction of heteronormativity, Babbit lends But I'm a Cheerleader a naturally distinct touch that continues to resonate deeply today.
Truman Burbank (Jim Carrey) is the star of The Truman Show, a 24-hour-a-day reality TV show that broadcasts every aspect of his life without his knowledge. Since birth, his entire life has been an unending soap opera for consumption by the rest of the world. And everyone he knows, including his wife and his best friend is really an actor, paid to be part of his life. That is, until he finds out the truth all for himself.
Written by Andrew Niccol (Gattaca, Lord of War), The Truman Show reaps the rewards of its towering lead performance from Carrey, who has allowed this satire to resonate deeply for two decades.
In a provincial Hungarian town, hundreds of people stand around a circus tent put up in the main square to see the chief attraction -- the stuffed carcass of a whale. This strange state of affairs, including the appearance of foreigners and an extreme frost, disturbs the order of the small town. An unbearable tension is brought to an explosion by the figure of the Prince, who attempts to uphold anonymity no matter what.
Based on the book, The Melancholy of Resistance by László Krasznahorkai, Werckmeister Harmonies is a daring continuation of Tarr's unmistakably singular directorial ouvreue.
