Leicester College Presents:
The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee

9th June

An eclectic group of six mid-pubescents vie for the spelling championship of a lifetime. While candidly disclosing hilarious and touching stories from their home lives, the teens spell their way through a series of (potentially made-up) words, hoping never to hear the soul-crushing, pout-inducing, life un-affirming "ding" of the bell that signals a spelling mistake. Six spellers enter; one speller leaves! At least the losers get a juice box. 

Music & lyrics by William Finn        Book by Rachel Sheinkin       Conceived by Rebecca Feldman

Century Cinema Presents:
The Rocky Horror Picture Show

27th October

It's the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when their car halts in the rain. They both look for contact, only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there? Especially when a large group of Transylvanians dance to the 'Time Warp', Dr. Frank-N-Furter builds his own man and a whole host of participation for the audience to enjoy.

The film is a spoof and homage of the Sci-Fi and Horror genre of the 50's and 60's, so there are some mildly frightening scenes, generally during the creation scene, but overall, the film has a comedic tone throughout.

Customer Notice: This film contains sex and nudity, so if you're easily offended this might not be the film for you!

Fancy Dress Welcome

Tickets available online, at the box office or on the door
