"ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW" IN OR NEAR FRESNO, CA
For those who do not have much time, or wish to get straight to the point, this is a petition to get the movie "Rocky Horror Picture Show" to be shown in Fresno, specifically at UA Broadway Faire 10, or the Clovis Criterion Cinemas 16. Please help our cause. --- I've always wanted to see Rocky Horror Picture Show. My mother recounted tales, sounding as if they were legends of bygone days, of going to the cinema, late at night. She would tell me, it was if the place had completely. Swarming with people in tuxedos, and other strange costumes. Carrying items, sometimes indescribable, and greeting others with "Are you a virgin" or "Are you here for the wedding" Others would make big scenes. Some would recite lines from some sort of obscure event. Others would cheer and sing. Then, when the lights went down, the whole theatre would be in an uproar. After that, the most amazing event of anybody's life happens. There was another recount. A man, who was like a father to me, who was strict, gruff, and very serious. The second Rocky Horror Picture Show was mentioned, it was as if he himself was a different person, as he exclaimed that it was the single greatest thing ever, and he would reiterate that "Your first time, should be in a theatre. NO EXCEPTIONS". As a young child, sitting wide-eyed, listening to these stories, I grew up with a fascination of it. I couldn't wait until the day I could finally experience "it". Unfortunately, though, times have changed. It's very rare now to stumble upon a cinema open at a late hour, with the sound of Meatloaf, drifting out of its doors. The sounds of many people, overwhelmed by the whole experience. The sounds of joy and laughter. Something that brings everyone, regardless of their person, together. --- NOW, IS THE REASON YOU ARE READING THIS! I have decided, after much contemplation that FRESNO MUST HAVE A SHOWING OF THIS FANTASTIC MOVIE! If not for my own lusting, but for the many others out there. Those who have yet to see it, those unfamiliar to it altogether, and, most of all, for those who still have fleeting memories of these bygone days. I shall be contacting the local theatre UA Broadway Faire 10, as well as Clovis' Criterion Cinemas 16, in an effort to get this movie to be shown. This is where YOU come in. Not only will I be starting multiple petitions, as well as a pen-and-paper one, but I also STRONGLY urge you to contact either, or both of these fine establishments, in an effort to get this shown. Regardless, please take the time to add your name to the list. Please help our cause, and thank you for your time. Sincerely, Jordan G.
