For decades the Rialto opened its doors on Saturday nights to a line of fanatics winding down the street. The midnight showings are kind of a big deal. Even if you have no desire to go, driving by the theatre at 11:30 or so will make you smile.
Although the theatre is now, sadly, mostly closed, the old Rocky crew rents out the Rialto the third Sunday of every month to cause mayhem and cross-dressing. If you live in Pasadena, you have to do this once inyour life. Personally, we’ve accomplished this and don’t plan on going back. If this is your first time, be forewarned that things may happen to you. Just go with it.
Saturday Februrary 21
Rialto Theatre, 1023 Fair Oaks Ave., South Pasadena
