The Green Lens Film Series is a four-part film series running on Thursdays through March 1. “Mission Blue” is part action-adventure, part expose of an eco-disaster. More than 100 scientists, philanthropists and activists gather in the Galapagos Islands to help fulfill Dr. Sylvia Earle’s lifelong wish: build a global network of marine protected areas, like underwater national parks, to protect the natural systems that keep humans alive. As the expedition ends, the Deep Water Horizon oil well explodes.

The Egyptian Theatre, 135 N. Second St., DeKalb

“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is an outrageous assemblage of the most stereotyped science fiction movies, Marvel comics, Frankie Avalon/Annette Funicello outings and rock ’n’ roll of every vintage. Running through the story is the sexual confusion of two middle American Ike Age kids confronted by the complications of the decadent morality of the ’70s, represented in the person of the mad “doctor” Frank N. Furter, a transvestite from the planet Transexual in the galaxy of Transylvania. Rated R. Props that are NOT allowed are: lighters, candles or flames of any kind, large water guns, toast, hot dogs, or prunes. Prop kits will be available for purchase in the lobby before the show.
