THE RITZ YBOR PRESENTS CULT-CLASSIC REPO! THE GENETIC OPERA ON FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2011
The RITZ Ybor presents a screening of and movie party for cult-classic REPO! The Genetic Opera on Friday, May 6, 2011.
REPO! The Genetic Opera, which is a horror-rock opera movie musical, immediately gained a cult film following upon its theatrical release in 2008. Described as The Rocky Horror Picture Show meets Blade Runner, the film takes place when a worldwide epidemic of organ failure forces a biotech company to launch an organ-financing program similar in nature to a standard car loan. Failure to maintain proper payment on financed-organs results in forceful repossession of the organs by the Repo man.
REPO! The Genetic Opera stars Anthony Head, Paul Sorvino, Sarah Brightman, Alexas Vega and Paris Hilton and was directed by Darren Lynn Bousman.
Doors for the event at The RITZ Ybor will open at 10pm with a costume contest and burlesque dance performances. A screening of the movie will take place at midnight with The Unworthy Heirs, Tampa's live cast. An after party with the cast will immediately follow the screening.
General admission tickets for REPO! The Genetic Opera are $10.00 and are available online at www.theritzybor.com and at The RITZ Ybor Box-Office. The RITZ Ybor Box-Office is open 1pm to 6pm every Wednesday thru Saturday and on the day of shows. Call (813) 248-9210 to reach the Box-Office directly.
