Let's Do The Time Warp

As you're probably aware, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is always in style. Every year there's an abundance of screenings of the film, some with shadow casts and some without, but it's the kind of flick that's a bundle of fun for everyone. While the Cosford is holding their usual screenings this year, and there's sure to be plenty of others as well, one stands out because of a more important event this year. The folks at O Cinema, who just recently announced their newest location in Miami Beach, will screen Rocky Horror at O Cinema Miami Shores with mistress of ceremonies TP Lords on tonight, October 25, and again on October 31 at O Cinema Wynwood. It won't feature a shadow cast, but sometimes it's better to simply watch the movie as is, especially if you're a virgin to its charm.

Back at O Cinema Miami Shores, a Freddy Double Feature hosted in partnership with Popcorn Nights brings an anniversary celebration of A Nightmare on Elm Street and Wes Craven's New Nightmare, the meta-sequel to the original film. The event on Sunday, November 2, features a costume contest and a live Q&A via Skype with Miko Hughes (Wes Craven's New Nightmare, Pet Sematary, Spawn, Kindergarten Cop).

A Night at the Drive-In

The Blue Starlite Drive-In Miami has got a hell of a slate available for people willing to drive on over this month. The sole true horror film that's available in the upcoming nights is Stanley Kubrick's masterful The Shining, but the theater has an abundance of fun flicks for everyone: Ghostbusters, Hocus Pocus, Beetlejuice, and Rocky Horror Picture Show. Plus, in collaboration with the Miami Jewish Film Festival, they've got a 40th anniversary screening of Mel Brook's Young Frankenstein that will be prefaced by a short film title Night of the Living Jews.
