Rocky Horror fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Three months after the closure of Chandler Cinemas where The Rocky Horror Picture Show became a staple for awhile, the show has found a new home in Tempe's Madcap Theaters, formerly Harkins Centerpoint. Rocky theater hopped over the last several years and was often homeless for some time, but has never truly gone away. Now it's back on Mill Avenue where it once was screened at the Valley Art Theater. Welcome back Rocky on Friday, Sept. 18 where it will debut in its new home. The show will feature everything Rocky is known for including the live stage cast, audience participation and a virgin sacrifice. The theater will also host a Naughty School Girl Contest and screen the goth rock and roll musical Repo! The Genetic Opera, which also features a live stage cast, for a special double feature. There will also be a live drag performance in between the films. Seating will begin at 7:30 p.m.
