REPERTORY CINEMAS NEAR YOU

Here is our master list of cinemas (and similar venues) that regularly or occasionally screen canonically weird features. These are some of the coolest theaters in the world, please patronize them! Clicking on most of the entries will open a page with the current date/week’s movies. U.S. listings are first, by state (and DC metro listed separately), with other countries following. Help keep this list up to date by making suggestions in the comments.

As a special note, a number of otherwise-conventional theaters host occasional screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) (although the 2020 pandemic interrupted the movies record as the longest-screening feature in movie history). The largest RHPS fan site keeps a list of such screenings (we don’t vouch for how up-to-date it is).
