"The 'Rocky Horror' Experience" Oct. 24, 2015--Rocky Horror Picture Show. Let's do the time warp again ... doubly ... when the cult classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" plays on our giant movie screen on Sat., Oct. 24 with a live cast simultaneously acting out the story on a stage below. Rocky Horror logo for webYou may be able to see "Rocky Horror" in other theaters around Halloween but no one else has Dr. Frank-N-Furter on a 60-foot screen. No one else offers Meat Loaf blasting "Hot Patootie/Bless My Soul" on a 12,000-watt surround-sound system. Plus, the Aquarium has a live cast ready to act out the story on a stage at the bottom of the giant screen. That's why we're calling the event "The 'Rocky Horror' Experience." Having a live cast on Oct. 24 doesn't mean we expect the audience to sit on their hands during the movie. Typical "Rocky Horror" audience participation is welcome; just please don't throw anything at our IMAX movie screen. Show time is 9PM.  Tickets: $18.

Weir Farm Hosts Foreshadowing Fate Walk -- Wilton

10/25/2015

735 Nod Hill Rd., Wilton, CT 06897. Phone: 203-834-1896.

On Sunday, October 25, 2015 from 4:00 to 5:00 pm, take a late afternoon walk through the autumn landscape of Weir Farm National Historic Site with local scholar and volunteer Bonnie Tremante as she reads excerpts of historic letters written in 1882 to artist Julian Alden Weir from his young fiancée Anna Dwight Baker. These letters foreshadow Anna's tragic death in 1893 due to complications caused by the birth of Julian and Anna's third daughter Cora. Anna's eerie sense of her own fate is reflected in the autumn's cold, dying landscape, setting sun, and mystical evening atmosphere so chillingly described in Anna's own words. There is no fee to participate in the walk, but registration is required and space is limited.
