Can't Stop the Music: The Off-the-Wall Film Series
All Library locations will be closed on Monday, September 1, in observance of Labor Day.
The Kansas City Public Library redefines the wall of sound as the annual Off-the-Wall Film Series finishes off a rollicking line-up of cult musicals this summer.
This raucous rock/pop driven showcase concludes with The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) on Friday, September 19, at 8:45 p.m. on the Rooftop Terrace at the Central Library, 14 W. 10th St.
Unsurpassed when it comes to audience participation theater, this cult musical time-warps viewers back to the days when filmmakers cared less about a plausible plot and more about flooding the senses “ especially the sense of decency “ with bizarro visuals and zany musical numbers. The cast includes vivid performances from Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Meatloaf, and Richard O'Brien. So come up to the rooftop and see what's on the slab... Rated R. (100 min.)
Admission is free. Click here or call 816.701.3407 to indicate your interest in attending. Free parking is available in the Library District Parking Garage at 10th and Baltimore.
Popcorn and water are provided for filmgoers, who are welcome to bring pillows and blankets or any preferred seating for the event. In case of inclement weather, the screening will be moved indoors to Helzberg Auditorium.
The Off-the-Wall Film Series is sponsored by the Friends of the Library.
