'Perks of Being a Wallflower' Director at Hollywood Theater Saturday
Stephen Chbosky, writer and director of "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," will host "Rocky Horror Picture Show" at Hollywood Theater this weekend.
It's not often that a major Hollywood movie is filmed in your hometown, and it's probably more rare that the director would come back months later for a visit.
That's what Stephen Chbosky is doing this Saturday, when he will host a special showing of "Rocky Horror Picture Show" at Dormont's Hollywood Theater.
Chbosky, an Upper St. Clair native, is the author of the 1999 novel "The Perks of Being a Wallflower." He also directed the movie, which was partly filmed at Dormont's Hollywood Theater last year and hit theaters this month.
The movie "Rocky Horror Picture Show" plays its own role in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," and Chbosky will host a special showing of "Rocky Horror" on Saturday, starting at 10:30 p.m.
Advanced tickets for the Rocky screening are $7 at www.showclix.com/event/RockyHorrorAtTheHollywood.
