It’s astounding.

It’s a timewarp!

Five-dollar specialty cocktails served during the screenings include the “Sweet Transves-tini,” the “Screaming Orgasm,” the “Time Warp” and a “Virgin Mary.” Seating for 250 on two levels overlooks a 16-foot screen, with five large flat-screen televisions around the main stage for additional viewing.

Doors open at 9:30 p.m. with “Gone Too Soon … A Tribute to Michael Jackson” starring impersonator Rico at 10:30 p.m. Admission is $15 at the door.
