New showings we found

As always, we are always on the hunt for new shows we missed in the 1st update. Here is one that was sent to us…

It is Saginaw Valley State University

The TSAR is an event area within Curtiss Hall, and we will have signs up and everything

It is open to the public
Prop bags are available for sale on a first come first serve basis for $3 each, if people bring prop bags from home we just ask that the toast isn’t buttered and that the rice isn’t cooked, also no hot dogs.
No shadow cast, but anyone can get up and do the Time Warp or whatever whenever they want
Here’s the link to the facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1486872391408969/

Spring Showings!

Taylor Spotlight has announce 2 shows – Friday the 28th and Saturday the 29th. Unfortunately, that’s Penguicon weekend so me and most of my friends won’t be able to make it. Sun Theater has also announce a May 19th showing. YAY! It’s a fun theater for Rocky. Hopefully they have louder speakers this time and that they remember to tell the virgins that we yell at the screen. Then there’s Ionia who TOTAL got the jump on every one and have already announced their Halloween show. Unfortunately, they have chosen Oct 27th, so will get totally drowned out by all the other Halloween shows where as last year they were a week early. Hooray for Rocky showings!!

Showing March 24th in Farmington

I love it that we now have a high enough ranking on google that shows are contacting me to be listed!! Here is one that just sent a message to the facebook group…

Down town Farmington!! Awesome!

New show found

New show found. Not of interest to most people as it’s Northern Michigan University, but technically counts as a Michigan showing…

Feburary Rocky showings

Feburary is shaping up to be quite a month for Rocky in Michigan. What a great start to the year. So far I’ve found out about 6 showings….

I know of 2 more shows that will most likely happen in the spring and I will let you know about those once I have confirmation. Saddly I have heard from Howell and Ann Arbor State say they will not be doing Rocky. As always, let me know if you hear of more!
