Celebrate Halloween with a movie, two bands, costume parade and special drinks from Oregon Spirit Distillers. It’s a party time triple bill at the Tower Saturday, October 27, starting with the cult classic “Rocky Horror Picture Show,” complete with interactive instructions from the Lava City Roller Dolls. Immediately following the film, Bend’s Mosley Wotta takes the Tower stage with his unique brand of hip hop rock. Then, Seattle’s Staxx Brothers turn the theatre into a juke joint with their vintage funkadelic “hard ass soul.” Sponsors 10 Barrel will pour their well-known brews, and Oregon Spirit Distillers will serve up their latest—Wild Card Absinthe.
In “Rocky Horror” (1975, rated R), Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon star as newlyweds Brad and Janet, lost in a rainstorm and seeking shelter in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a mad scientist from the planet Transsexual. The hallmark of “Rocky Horror” is live audience participation: dancing, dressing, singing along–even pulling out props–in unison with the celluloid cast. So the Lava City Roller Dolls will sell bags of “dry” props (rice, toast, toilet paper, cards), and teach the “Time Warp” dance so everyone can do “a bit of a mind flip, into a time slip.”
General admission for the evening (movie and two shows) is $14. Attendees may come and go throughout the night. All ticket buyers must be 21 years old or older.
The Tower Theatre Foundation owns and operates the historic stage in downtown Bend. The Foundation’s mission is to provide performing arts, civic, educational and social events that enliven and enrich the lives of all Central Oregonians.
