The Hollywood Theater in Dormont, returning to life in May after a year of being dark, is coming back in style. It will serve as a location for "The Perks of Being a Wallflower."
The source novel, by Upper St. Clair native Stephen Chbosky, includes scenes of costumed characters enjoying the cult classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at a movie theater. A contract reportedly has been signed for the Dormont theater to serve as a backdrop for those scenes.
Chbosky is adapting his book and directing the movie version starring Logan Lerman and Emma Watson along with Mae Whitman and Nina Dobrev. It will start shooting before "The Dark Knight Rises" in Pittsburgh.
