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!
