DIG OUT YOUR COSTUMES, THE 1970s CULT CLASSIC IS HERE!!
Campy, brilliant and utterly bonkers, it’s no wonder this is a cult classic and a much loved favourite. The only way to watch this is to sing along as enthusiastically and loudly as possible and if you don’t wake up the neighbours and had a knock at the door from the police, you’ve failed.
It’s quite hard to describe the plot past “Brad and Janet’s car breaks down and they find themselves in a house” because that’s when all hell breaks loose. Singing, dancing, Meat Loaf and a man in very tight golden underwear is just a small part of the madness and it’s very, very fun.
It’s not a movie, it’s an EXPERIENCE. First time experiencing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Click here for some tips!
BAR OPENS AT 8:00PM.
All tickets $12. Reserve seating. Price includes HST.

Everyone knows that, each Christmas, Santa Claus delivers presents to every last child on Earth. What everyone doesn’t know is that Santa accomplishes the feat with a very high-tech operation beneath the North Pole. But when the unthinkable happens, and Santa misses one child out of hundreds of millions, someone has to save the day. It’s up to Arthur (James McAvoy), Santa’s youngest son, to deliver a present to the forgotten tyke before Christmas morning dawns.

The O’Brien Family Benefit Concert in support of the Annapolis Area Food Bank
The O’Brien Family has lived in Canada since 2004, when the family left England for a new life on Vancouver Island. Over the years the family has made three albums, played hundreds of shows, and even toured Europe.Their sound is a blend of luscious harmonies and great songs, played in a folksy bluegrass style. The Family love to perform and get everyone singing at their shows. They are delighted to be performing a concert in support of the ANNAPOLIS AREA FOOD BANK. This will be the very first time the family has performed on the East coast, and it is because Paul and Louise [Mom and Dad] and Millie [eldest child] have moved out East to Bridgetown, NS and Rothesay, NB respectively. The family also sing many songs written by both Paul and youngest member of the family Fintan. Fintan has his own career as a singer songwriter and is about to release a new album of his own songs. Both Fintan and Paul will be touring Europe together for the very first time during September and October. Come out and see the O’Brien Family and at the same time make a big difference to many families over Christmas.
