Basalt Summer Cinema: Movies in the Park: Rocky Horror Picture Show

July 23, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC-6

After a hugely-successful premiere, the excitement is high for the next Basalt Movies in the Park night featuring the cult-classic, “Rocky Horror Picture Show.”

You can catch this next showing Saturday, July 23 at Lions Park in Downtown Basalt. Gates open at 7pm for a pre-movie community picnic and the film will start after sunset. Movies will continue every second and fourth Saturday through September 10.

The series, presented by the Basalt Chamber of Commerce, is designed for a range of ages and interests. Chamber Board member and videographer Haley Thompson who is organizing the program with Basalt Chamber president Robin Waters said, “The series offers an opportunity for students and aspiring filmmakers to show their art, as well as providing fun entertainment for all.”

This week there will be a special premiere of Isaacson School for New Media scholar Thang Khan Sian Khai’s two-minute film, “The Untouchable Skin.” Originally from Myanmar, Sian Khai graduated with an Associate’s Degree in New Media from the Isaacson School where he will continue his studies in the fall.

Scrumptious sandwiches and snacks can be purchased from the Munch LLC, Open Fire Catering and other food trucks and venders. Beer, wine, refreshments and popcorn will be available for purchase so no alcoholic beverages may be brought into the park.
