A gay cabaret owner and his drag queen companion agree to put up a false straight front so that their son can introduce them to his fiancée's right-wing moralistic parents
The Midnight Shift began reimagining film favorites with its inaugural shadowcast of “Clue” in August 2011; the simple premise was to take the best attributes of the film and bring it to life so that it can be enjoyed by an audience in an actual performance space bringing together a cinema experience that breaks the fourth wall and also provides three-dimensional entertainment hitherto unknown.
Entertainment values are high due to the core essence of what The Midnight Shift contributes to their craft--a different film being performed every month, a rarity among other cinematic shadowcast troupes. It is the belief that movies should be more fun and are not just passive entertainment. Participation by audience members is highly encouraged albeit expected with some productions.
For as long as the troupe exists, The Midnight Shift will continue to provide the utmost unique experience that you’ve ever had in cinema or theatre. Planning films six months in advance, it is certain that there will be a personal favorite being performed in a short time.
Performances of The Midnight Shift can be attended on the third Saturday of every month at the Grandview Theatre (1247 Grandview Avenue, Columbus, OH 43212).
A merging of late-night favorites and theatrical production, The Midnight Shift brings cinema to life.
