Rocky Horror Picture Show
Rather than wandering from one overcrowded bar to the next this New Year's Eve, risking obnoxious run-ins with lightweight boozers and wasting your cash on inflated cover charges, head to the Clay Theatre this Saturday for a special midnight screening of The Rocky Horror Picture Show to ring in 2012.
You’d be surprised at the number of people who harbor a latent desire to sit in a dark theater with a few hundred strangers and sing in chorus, “You Are Sixteen, Going On Seventeen.”
Nothing unites folks more than shared nostalgia. Reliving some of your favorite childhood things along with a roomful of stranger bonds the crowd, swiftly and inextricably.
And, in this crummy economy, maybe knowing that a gaggle of spunky kids had to wear drapes for play clothes -- and still managed to escape the Nazis, can make us feel a little better about thrift.
