The Tampa Theatre's recent run of sing-along screenings has been smashing (hat tip, Mary Poppins, The Greatest Showman and this weekend's upcoming Yellow Submarine screening), and the hum-worthy aesthetic is set to get a little spooky now that the historic venue's "Nightmare on Franklin" lineup is out.
Set for October 19-21, the 13 nights of movies include a lot of A Nightmare On Elm Street, but music fans will be happy to see the return of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (October 19) plus the addition of Tim Burton's post-Nightmare Before Christmas animated film, Corpse Bride (October 21).
The screenings are not specifically billed as "sing-along" shows, but guests, per usual, are encouraged to bring their own toilet paper, cards, newspapers, toast and other props (except for hot dogs and water guns) to the showing of Rocky Horror. And let's face it, only fun-haters are going to chastise you for humming along to tunes like "Remains Of The Day" and "Tears To Shed" from Burton's 2005 film.
