A long-standing Portland attraction is once again opening its doors. Get your tickets for Clinton Street Theater’s screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Since 1978, The Clinton Street Theater has been showing The Rocky Horror Picture Show weekly. Moviegoers were encouraged to dress up as one of the characters and bring along theater approved props for a night of fun and outrageous entertainment. Due to the pandemic, the theatre had to push pause on its midnight screening.
Have you never been to a midnight showing of the cult classic? You should add it to your Portland bucket list. The 1975 motion picture plot follows a newly engaged couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, who are lost with a flat tire on a dark, rainy night. Seeking a telephone to call for help, the couple walks to a nearby castle where they meet a group of downright strange people who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention.
The musical numbers, signature moves and audience participation make this an ideal film to watch with a crowd.
Now it’s time to bust out your best costume and practice your Time Wrap. The Clinton Street Theatre has announced the tradition is coming back to life on Saturday, April 3.
The event is limited to 50 people. Due to the state requiring businesses to close by 11 p.m., the show will take place at an earlier time. The movie begins at 9 p.m., preceded by doors opening at 8 p.m., and the pre-show starting at 8:30 p.m.
Tickets are $12 plus a $2 service fee. All tickets must be purchase in advance.
The theater is not able to have its full concessions open, but will have beer, wine and hard cider for purchase. Ticket holders are welcome to snacks.
Right now, April 3 is the only date that has been announced. I’ll update this post as soon as additional dates are available.
The Clinton Street Theater is located at 2522 SE Clinton Street in Portland. For more information about this event and to purchase your tickets, visit the theater’s website.
