In the summer of 1996 we showed THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW at midnight at the Plaza. 20th Century Fox didn’t want to give us a good print of the film because it had never shown in a drive-in before, but when we outgrossed every theatre playing it in the US they agreed to strike us a new one. We played it 4 weekends and only took it off because the kids kept setting fire to their matresses to make it smokey and the fire department kept getting calls.

I would like to know if there are any future plans of opening this theater back up, if so when if not, what is the possibility of purchasing it?
