It wasn’t just any night at the movies when patrons gathered at East Greenville’s The Grand Theater on March 9th to see The Rocky Horror Picture Show. The periodic screening of the cult classic at the popular local theater is also a way to give back to the community. This time, $300.00 was raised for Quakertown-based Last Chance Ranch Animal Rescue.
“We’re thrilled that they chose us,” said Judy Grant, office manager and treasurer for Last Chance Ranch. “It was such a great surprise! We had no idea they did this until we saw their Facebook post. It’s just wonderful.”
“Generally, we hold four or five Rocky Horror showings a year – in January, March, June and October,” said The Grand Theater vice president, John Schortz. “We pick a charity for each show and donate $2 from the $10 admission price plus whatever else we can collect by passing around a large popcorn bucket.”
The Grand Theater president and general manager, Ed Buchinski, added, “In the past we’ve collected for many local groups, including the Montgomery County 4-H Seeing Eye Puppy Club. In fact, I think it was someone from the Puppy Club that suggested we adopt Last Chance Ranch as one of the beneficiaries of our special Rocky Horror nights.”
