Movie Night: Rocky Horror Picture Show

Probably the oddest, most off-the-wall cult film ever made, this rock’n’roll science fiction horror satire is everybody’s favourite midnight show. A young couple stumbles into a castle inhabited by weirdos from the planet Transylvania including Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry). A marvelous musical spoof which urges. Provided through Criterion Pictures.

Rated R

Movie Night: Singin' in the Rain

Gene Kelly, Debbie Reynolds and Donald O’Connor star in one of the greatest musicals ever filmed. Musician Don Lockwood (Kelly) rises to stardom during Hollywood’s silent-movie era–paired with the beautiful, jealous and dumb Lina Lamont (Jean Hagen). When Lockwood becomes attracted to young studio singer Kathy Selden (Reynolds), Lamont has her fired. But with the introduction of talking pictures, audiences laugh when they hear Lockwood speak for the first time–and the studio uses Selden to dub her voice. Set during the advent of “talkies,” this film’s classic song-and-dance numbers celebrate the beginning of movie musicals. Provided through Swank Motion Pictures, Inc.

Rated G

Movie Night: Little Shop of Horrors

A nerdy florist finds his chance for success and romance with the help of a giant man-eating plant who demands to be fed. Provided through Swank Motion Pictures, Inc.

Rated PG-13
