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!

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!

Bust out those plastic spoons! Tommy Wiseau's The Room is returning in all its football-throwing glory!

Wiseau's peerless magnum opus finds the auteur who shaped a generation taking on the arts of acting, writing, casting, directing, editing and more. What's even more remarkable: he's mastered them all. The multi-talented director stars as Johnny, a big-time banker working in gorgeously shot San Francisco. His fiancée Lisa, seemingly a happy part of a successful relationship, has wandering eyes… for Tommy's best friend Mark. Cinema has never witnessed such betrayal!

An intense, sensual thriller, The Room is an intricately knit web of sweet secrets and bitter lies that interrogates the very form of drama itself as well as a truly unforgettable piece of cinema.

Plus, star and The Disaster Artist author Greg Sestero will be appearing live in-person for both an introduction and post-film Q&A!

Be sure to bring your own spoons so you don't miss out on all the audience participation fun!

Just six months after the release of his Oscar-winning Poor Things, writer-director Yorgos Lanthimos is back with Cannes award-winner Kinds Of Kindness.

A thought-provoking and darkly humorous exploration of human connections and the unexpected forms kindness can take, Kinds of Kindness follows a series of unique but loosely interconnected stories set in a dystopian future, where acts of kindness lead to unintended consequences. Lanthimos's signature surreal and unsettling style is evident as he delves into the lives of characters such as a cynical nurse who finds herself caring for a mysterious patient, a reclusive artist who becomes an unlikely mentor, and a couple whose strained relationship is tested by an unusual act of charity. Buoyed by terrific performances by Emma Stone, Jesse Plemons, Margaret Qualley, and Willem Dafoe, Lanthimos' film examines the complexities and moral ambiguities of kindness in his distinctive darkly-comic, quasi-surreal style.

Kinds of Kindness premiered to critical acclaim, earning accolades for its bold storytelling and unique cinematic vision. The film has been praised for its sharp screenplay, innovative direction, and the standout performances of its ensemble cast, notably Plemons who took home the Best Actor award at this year's Cannes Film Festival.
