Hey Montreal! The RHPS Halloween Ball is back at the Impérial!
Halloween is here again and for thousands of Montrealers this means another chance to experience the inimitable Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Ball. This year they will be back at the Impérial Cinéma situated right in the Quartier des Spectacles, 1430 Bleury Street (Place des arts metro).
To accommodate the large numbers of participants, there will be no less than six presentations over three nights;
Friday October 26th at 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM
Saturday October 27th at 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM
Wednesday October 31st at 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM
PLASTIK PATRIK is back to host the six uninhibited shows. Patrick will be there to coordinate the costume contest and get the audience aroused for all the on-screen and off-screen action.
The student night is back by popular demand! For the Wednesday October 31st shows only, students with a valid student ID card will get 5$ off the ticket price; this offer is valid in advance and at the door. There will be a limit of two tickets per student.

Throughout the entire screening of the cult movie, a cast of forty live actors will perform in sync with the film playing on the big screen just above them. At various key moments rice, water, toilet paper, toast and newspapers will be thrown about. Audience members will also be yelling lines back at the characters on screen. Lines like; “SLUT!” or “ASSHOLE!” Although most of the entertainment will come from the screen and stage, much of it comes from sex-crazed audience high on the hysteria that is The Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Ball. Regardless of their claims, no other event even comes close to this unique and extremely popular annual ritual. Torn stockings optional.
