Halloween

When horror-loving hard-rocker Rob Zombie decided to write, direct, and produce a remake/prequel of 1978’s Halloween, he told The Gauntlet, he got some sound advice from a sound source. John Carpenter, the original’s mastermind, told Zombie to make the film his own. So Zombie did just that, delving into the psyche and childhood of teen-killer Michael Myers to give the story a new depth capable of matching his fresh aesthetic. Zombie takes audiences behind the locked doors of the Warren County Sanitarium, where Michael Myers obsesses over papier-mâché masks. But not for long. When Myers escapes, he makes his way back to his hometown just in time for Halloween: the day on which he recovers his old kitchen knife, puts on a mask, and opts for bloody terror instead of trick-or-treating.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Dripping with fishnets and leather, the late-night B-movie spoof The Rocky Horror Picture Show inducts attendees into a beloved, rowdy tradition. As archetypal pair of squares Brad and Janet approach the castle of the fabulous Dr. Frank-N-Furter and meet his minions—including decrepit butler Riff Raff; patched-together golden boy Rocky; and, played by Meat Loaf, rock-and-roller Eddie—a shadow cast of actors clothed in lingerie gyrates in front of the screen. In the audience, a decades-long tradition of crowd participation carries on as guests are encouraged to participate in a group “Time Warp” dance, shine flashlights during the song “Over at the Frankenstein Place,” and pop balloons if their dates fall asleep.

State Theatre

The State Theatre was saved, as its website states, from “the ravages of time.” Built in 1921 as a vaudeville and silent-film palace, the venue fell on hard times in the 1970s. In 2003, however, a $3 million renovation restored the State Theatre to much of its original glory, as crews painstakingly rehabbed the ornamental plaster, terracotta exterior, and actor holding cells. Inside the theater, a stunning chandelier sparkles more brightly than ever below the venue’s signature dome.
