Rocky Horror Picture Show


Sarah Marmon ’14 has me shivering with antici—

We would like, if we may, to take you on a strange journey- a journey through the craziest night in the lives of the newly engaged Brad and Janet. After a flat tire halts their trip to see an old science teacher, the couple stumbles upon Dr. Frank-n-Furter’s castle, filled with servants, groupies, party guests, and his very own live experiment. Come see the campiest, sexiest horror parody movie this side of Denton! Absent Toast, Wesleyan’s very own Rocky Horror Picture Show shadowcast performs the midnight cult classic right in front of the screen, with full audience partici…pation.

Film Series: Museum Hours

2012. Austria/USA. Dir: Jem Cohen. With Mary Margaret O’Hara. 106 min.

A stranded woman forges a friendship with a guard at Vienna’s Kunsthistorisches Museum – two lonely souls meeting in a temple of beauty within the cold, dark city. Cohen ‘84 shines a light on a love of art that bonds people, feeding a compulsion to see beauty in the seemingly mundane that remains long after the film ends.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. Free.

Make it Rain Berkshares: A talk on local currency from Alice Maggio ’10

Western Massachusetts Launches Its Own Currency

From Ari Ebstein ’16:

Alice Maggio ’10 is coming to speak this Thursday @ 200 Church from 7:00-8:30 about her role as Program Director of the Berkshares local currency program in Berkshires, MA. As she writes in the description of her talk, “Local currency as a tool for citizen-based economic development,” that by fixating for decades on the global economy we have “lost many of the tools and models that helped local and regional economies to function.” One such tool is local currency. Berkshares — one of the nation’s largest local currencies — provides one such model for sustainable, local economic revitalization.

The talk will be sponsored by the Sociology and French departments.

Here is PBS’s profile of the local currency — check it out! :)

Date: Thursday, December 5
Time: 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM
Place: 200 Church
Cost: Berkshares
