Typical movie theater concessions available plus alcohol. Prices are great. No real food just popcorn and candy. Plenty of places to eat in the area. Concessions and drinks are cash only, no ATM inside.

More Information


Written Jared Webster and Joshua Grannell, who also directs, The Silence of the Trans pre-show musical plunges deep into the adventures of FBI agent Clarice Starlet (Suppositori Spelling), who must save the amply-sized Catherine Martin (Lady Bear) from the clutches of serial killer Buffalo Jill (Sharon Needles). Clarice seeks advice from “tran-nibalistic” killer Trannibal Lector (Peaches Christ) but will she find Catherine before the plus-sized beauty becomes Buffalo Jill’s new couture “body” suit? The event will feature eye-popping performances from Visantos as “The Narrator,” Mrs. Christ (Peaches Christ’s real mother) and also includes Timmy Spence, Cousin Wonderlette, Raya Light and Trixxie Carr as herself. With choreography by Rory Davis and original music by Trixxie Carr, The Silence of the Trans is a delectable experience you’ll never forget!
