Transylvanian Lip Treatment presents
Midnight Picture Show

US 1975 | digital | Dir: Jim Sharman | 100min | R

Midnight / doors 11:00p  |  $7
17+ unless accompanying parent or adult guardian

This campy cult classic (which unfortunately, we can't name here, but you can watch the trailer over there) is the most popular midnight movie of all time.  A corn-fed all-American couple stumbles onto a creepy castle one night when their car breaks down, entering a world they never dreamed existed. The castle turns out to be inhabited by a collection of kinky Transylvanian freaks led by a mad bisexual transvestite.  The film gained notoriety as the most successful midnight movie ever, in which hundreds of cult fans show up in costume and act out scenes from the movie.

You are not allowed to bring your own props.  Prop kits are available at the show.  Prop kits include rice (during the wedding scene at the very beginning, throw yours in celebration), a newspaper (during the rain scene, keep dry), noise maker (during the creation speech, celebrate and MAKE SOME NOISE), toilet paper (when the doctor breaks through the lab wall, hurl your "scotts" tissue), and toast (make your toast during the birthday dinner...toss it), will be available at the show for $4.  YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO COME IN COSTUME.

Doors open at 11:00pm.  Virgin sacrifice before the show.  The movie begins at Midnight.

Mad Hatter Shows present
Upchurch The Redneck
funnier than a chili dog fart in a space suit

8:00p / doors 7:00p  |  $30 advance / VIP $60

Ryan Edward Upchurch was born in Cheetham County TN on Mat 24th 1991.  He comes from a close family full of humor which led him to become the hilarious redneck comedian we know today.  In 2014, while hanging with some friends Ryan started creating videos as his character "Upchurch The Redneck" within four months time he gained over 100,000 fans.  In less than a year he hit over a million fans on social media.

In some of his famous videos, Ryan would sing bits of his favorite country songs.  Fans couldn’t get enough and would beg for more.  In July, 2014 Ryan put out his first single “Raise Hell and Eat Cornbread” which started the RHEC craze.  Before long, Ryan had his own RHEC clothing line.  Redneck Nation quickly sponsored the clothing line and in no time RHEC merchandise became popular.

It seems everything Ryan touches turns to gold. He has such a kind heart and outgoing personally, he is just easy to love.  In 2015, he joined the team of Rise & Stand to help the organization raise awareness about bullying and labeling.  He spends a good majority of his time mentoring fans in need. Recently, Ryan released his hick-hop rap album “Cheatham County”.  The album was in the top 25 before even hitting shelves.
