The Arch Street Meeting House is setting off the weekend right with the screening the cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Rated R) outdoors on their historic grounds on Friday, October 29th, from 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm. For a suggested donation of $5, first come first serve visitors that show proof of registration will receive a goodie bag with sweet treats. This event is BYOB and a great way to kick off the Halloweekend.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show: “The madcap, musical mayhem begins when rain-soaked Brad and Janet take refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite mad scientist from outer space who is about to unveil his greatest creation–and have a bit of fun with his reluctant guests. Join Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon and rock star Meat Loaf in the most popular cult classic of all time.” [Rated R]
Located in the heart of Old City, Philadelphia, Arch Street Meeting House is a museum, National Historic Landmark, and active Quaker place of worship.

Registration can be found here.
**Registration to this event includes admission to the museum prior to the beginning of the screening. In the event of rain, the screening will be moved indoors to the East Room of the Museum.
