VOYAGE OF THE ROCK ALIENS (1984)
$11 General Admission & $8 OFS members
It’s Devo meets Grease in Voyage of the Rock Aliens, a genre-bending musical mutation from the outer limits of the cosmos (aka 1984). A group of new wave extraterrestrials blast through the galaxy in a guitar-shaped spaceship, searching for the truest form of rock ‘n’ roll. After witnessing Dee Dee (Pia Zidora) competing to become the top rocker in the small town of “Speelburgh,” the UFO lands on Earth and sets off total mayhem—including Michael Berryman as a chainsaw-wielding psychopath. Combining the electric experimentation of early MTV with the spirits of Rocky Horror Picture Show and Star Wars, Voyage of the Rock Aliens is a glorious, coked-out spectacle that’s guaranteed to make you happy. Newly restored from the original camera negative!

SCREENING: WED 1/11 7PM; WED 1/18 7PM; WED 1/25 7PM
Patrons, performers, staff, and volunteers are no longer required to wear masks or show proof of vaccination. The threat of covid, seasonal flu, and respiratory viruses are still out there. OFS will continue to provide masks (while supplies last – we have tons), surface and hand sanitizer, and regular air filtration system maintenance. We encourage mask-wearing at concerts and indoor gatherings and keep snacking and drinking in seating areas only.
If you test positive for COVID-19, stay home for at least 5 days and isolate from others in your home to avoid spreading COVID-19 to others. If you are not feeling well, we ask that you call out for your volunteer, stay at home, and come back when you feel better to minimize the spread and to help keep others at the theater healthy and keep our operations going.
