Audience Participation Is Required!
The Alden Presents a New, Free Quote-Along Movie Series
McLean, Va.—In the style of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” The Alden in McLean presents a whole series of “audience participation required” movies this fall. The movies will be shown with cues for when to shout out popular lines—but audience members are encouraged to “quote along” with all of their own favorites. Plus, with a $5 prop bag, participants can act out scenes, add to the environment and bring the fun to a whole new level.
The movies will be shown at the Old Firehouse, 1440 Chain Bridge Rd. Admission to the show and popcorn are free. Prop bags for each show are available for $5 each and can be purchased at www.aldentheatre.org. Participants can bring their own non-alcoholic beverages, as well.
