Midnight Madness and Beyond at E Street Cinema

0

If there’s one thing Netflix has cost us, it’s the pleasure of standing in line at midnight in fishnets and lipstick. Luckily, DC’s Landmark E Street Cinema has re-animated the long dormant corpse of the midnight movie, and, starting tonight, will be showcasing a different cult classic each weekend for the rest of the summer.

Appropriately enough, The Rocky Horror Picture Show opens and closes this season’s line-up. Don’t worry, though – Sam Raimi, Bruce Campbell and the “boomstick” (pictured) are back this year, too. “Science Fiction Double Feature” indeed.
