Meet your company for Friday Night.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show: The Event!
E-Street Cinema is notorious for their late night, Friday showings of the great Rocky Horror Picture Show. Georgetown students who have never had the chance to partake in this great event are now given the chance to do so with this Friday’s off campus trip to the cinema. Tickets will be on sale Thursday and Friday in Red Square. If groups are interested in buying a group of tickets, contact Kathleen McCullough at firstname.lastname@example.org. A live cast will perform scenes from the movie, during the movie, and it’s definitely a unique experience, to say the least. The event will go from 11:15 pm to 2:00 am on Friday night.
Nomadic Theatre’s presentation of “Getting Out” will open this Thursday, October 8th, at 8:00 pm in the Walsh Black Box Theatre. This presentation tells the story of a woman named Arlene, who has has just ‘gotten out’ of the Kentucky prison system. She wishes only to make a better life for herself; but her past won’t allow that so easily. She must overcome the tribulations of her youth before she has the opportunity to get out of that metaphorical prison system of her past! Tickets will cost $10 for general admission. You can also attend the production at 8:00 pm on Friday or Saturday, or 7:00 pm on Sunday.
The Nine Lives of Marion Barry
There hasn’t been a more aptly titled documentary than this one. It’s impossible to ignore the fact that Marion Barry is a man with a story; a story one that seems to adapt well to film because of its multi-faceted scope. Filmmakers Dana Flor and Toby Oppenheimer have brought together archival material with verite footage of Barry’s 2004 campaign so that viewers can better understand the meaning of Barry’s incredibly long dominance of D.C. politics. Dana Flor will attend the screening, and afterwards will discuss the film with Professor Maurice Jackson of Georgetown’s Department of History, who was interviewed for the documentary. You can RSVP for this event by going here. The screening will be this Thursday at 7 pm in the New South Film Screening room.
