A Halloween cult-classic screens at the Rio, stand up comedy and an evening of mochi-making (and eating).
Here’s your weekly roundup of the top events in the city, including art exhibitions, local theatre, restaurant openings, concerts, film, markets and other to-dos we think you’ll love. If you have a Vancouver event you’d like to submit for consideration, send an email to email@example.com.
Would Halloween even count if there wasn’t a theatre somewhere playing The Rocky Horror Picture Show? The answer (in my opinion): No. The ever-quirky cult classic is playing at the lively Rio with host Fairlith Harvey helming the debauchery. Come in your fave costume and be ready to sing, dance, inhale popcorn and do the time warp (again) (or for the first time, I don’t know your life!)
When: October 26
Where: Rio Theatre
Cost: From $22
