The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Montreal Halloween Ball is back this year after a pandemic hiatus
On Halloween night at 7 p.m. this year, Montreal’s Rocky Horror Picture Show Halloween Ball announced that its annual festivities, which took a short hiatus last year due to the pandemic, will proceed as usual. at the Dollar Cinema.
For fans of the cult film and the throwing objects and singing experience alongside the film, the Montreal experience, considered the most important of its kind in North America, will be very different this year. It may not seem quite fair to some, but it’s as good as it gets this year: it will be a “non-participation screening of the classic cult film,” the organizers wrote on the event’s website.
âThere will be NO rice, confetti, toast, toilet paper, water guns, other props or outside food or drink allowed inside the theaterâ¦ ‘The Voice ‘will do the recall lines as members of RHPSMTL’s official shadowcast greet you at the door and make an appearance on stage to dance The Time Warp. “
This is quite a change from what is normally an event filled with throwing objects, chanting, dancing, and close, personal interactions with the audience; However, given that public health restrictions will not budge an inch in any area except restaurants and bars from November, that’s good news for this long-running event.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s Montreal Halloween Ball will take place on Sunday, October 31 at the Dollar cinema, located inside DÃ©carie Square (203-6900 DÃ©carie Boulevard) at 7 pm; tickets can be purchased here. First come, first served.
