The ghosts of the golden age of theater return to their preserved old haunts to give you a thrilling treat at the historical Earl Smith Strand Theatre in Marietta. For $4, today's side deal gets you a ticket to see either The Rocky Horror Picture Show or Jaws 3-D on May 22 (up to a $10 value). You must reserve your seat at the box office (open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to noon and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.) by May 20. Jaws 3-D ($7–$8) starts chomping at 8 p.m., and Rocky Horror ($10) begins doing the time warp at 11:55 p.m. No outside props are allowed for Rocky Horror, Janet, but you can purchase the theater's prop bags for $2.
The gorgeously renovated Strand Theatre is decorated in gold and crimson, with old-fashioned seats, a lobby chandelier, and retro plaster walls reminiscent of classic 1940s Hollywood theaters. Strand welcomes guests with its lit-up marquee, recalling the excitement our ancestors felt back when Chaplin vs. Kong was the biggest event of the year. Arrive 30 minutes prior to the 8 p.m. showtime for a pre-show organ sing-along, rousing the spirit of the silver screen. It's the ideal setting to see Tim Curry fight drag sharks.
