Get ready for a night of song, dance and fun when FilmOut San Diego presents a double feature of Rocky Horror Picture Show/Shock Treatment, two of the biggest cult films ever to grace the silver screen. Rocky Horror remains in limited release nearly four decades after its initial run, with audiences across the globe devouring nearly every word. Six years later, Shock Treatment followed the adventures of the Majors family, and while it was not as popular as the original, it still has a high level of campiness that ensures its legacy on the midnight film circuit.

His name is Petunia. Charlie Petunia. At first glance, he looks positively Bonds-like in his tuxedo but in fact, he is the polar opposite of the suave lady killer. Instead of drinking martinis and living it up, Charlie spends his brother’s wedding reception avoiding the dance floor and securing his self-imposed celibacy by snapping the rubber band on his wrist anytime he feels aroused by the formal-wear-clad young men in the room. The Petunia family has a storied history of avoiding real feelings: Mom, Felicia, (Christine Lahti) is a therapist who needs a shrink of her own; dad, Percy, (David Rasche) hides erectile dysfunction under an oblivious and disaffected non-personality; and brothers Michael (Eddie Kaye Thomas) and Adrian (Jimmy Heck) are hiding infidelity and sex addiction, respectively. Throw in mean NYC princess Vivian (Thora Birch) for a sister-in-law, and you have Charlie’s biggest problem: his crazy family. Charlie finally finds a guy he’s willing to break his “no sex” vow for when he meets and starts dating George McDougal (Michael Urie). But George is hiding something from Charlie – his wife (Brittany Snow) – and their relationship hits a complicated snag when she returns unexpectedly from a long trip. With super quirky, yet highly sympathetic characters, great acting, and hilariously unpredictable twists and turns, Petunia will make you think about love, life and how family plays a part in who you turned out to be.
Running Time: 92 min, Unrated.
Remember To Breathe
Alice Martin (Lee Meriwether), a former musical headliner, now lives alone and forgotten in a house hidden away just below the Hollywood sign. She remembers a past love (Susan Blakely) as she searches for meaning in her golden years. While mentoring a young aspiring singer (Leigh Ann Larkin), past memories become entwined with the present as Alice comes to realize that what she thought was lost is only dormant, awaiting a new spark.
Running Time: 26 min, Unrated.
