Midnight Movies Return To The TLA For Three Saturdays Of Cult Classics And Crazy Costumes, Starting Saturday, July 28
It’s no secret: South Street is home to the more eclectic side of Philadelphia.
Venture to South Street on a Saturday night and you’ll stumble upon all types of cuisine, art galleries and interesting shops you wouldn’t find anywhere else in the city.
Let’s just say it also wouldn’t be strange to find hundreds of costumed film fans out and about either. And you know what they say: if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
DJ Robert Drake kicks off the series on July 28 with Pink Flamingos. A few decades back, this John Walters classic was screened for the first time in Philly at the TLA.
Get ready to do the Time Warp on Saturday, August 4 as the series continues with a screening of Rocky Horror Picture Show, complete with a live stage performance by Transylvanian Nipple Productions.
The mini-series concludes on Saturday, August 11 with the camp classic Mommie Dearest.
Go all out! Costumes are highly encouraged and prizes will be awarded to the craziest movie-going garb.
Although the TLA has been known primarily as a concert venue for some time now, they’ve reconnected to their roots as a movie house by installing a brand new screen and digital projector system and opening its doors to more than 300 costumed film fans. Sounds like the perfect eccentric movie experience.
