About SEATING OPTIONS at Thrillpeddlers Hypnodrome:
Our intimate venue seats only forty-five guests, so we do recommend purchasing your tickets in advance.  "General Admission" seats are filled on a first-come basis and we A encourage patrons to arrive early (the doors open at 7:30 pm).  For couples seeking privacy and an extra jolt during Thrillpeddlers famed blackout spook show finales, the Hypnodromes signature "Shock Box" seats are well worth the higher ticket price of $69 per couple.  Winner of SF Weekly's "Best of San Francisco 2008" Award for "Best Bonus Theater Experience" Hypnodrome's "interactive audience-invading" Shock Boxes are themed loveseats (Heaven and Hell, The Pharaoh's Tomb, and The Asylum of Shock), that offer the same opportunity for illicit trysting that was once a feature of the Parisian Theatre du Grand Guignol - thanks to a sheer curtain that can be drawn to conceal the goings on inside each private booth.  A "Shock Box" couple can see the show, but the show cant see them!  In our "Turkish Lounge" for two, couples may bask in decadent languor and kick back among oriental carpets and silken pillows while enjoying the show.


Thrillpeddlers Launch 2009 Season Celebrating
Featuring V.Vale, Jill Tracy on 2/12, Winston Smith on 2/13 and Jello Biafra and Steve MacKay on 2/14.

Where can San Franciscans revel in an oddball weekend that alternatively celebrates the bicentennial of Abraham Lincolns birth, Friday the 13th and St. Valentines Day?  At The Hypnodrome, of course, where Thrillpeddlers kick off their 2009 season with benefit performances featuring an audacious and eclectic mix of live music, sensual show-and-tell and on stage interviews with counterculture icons conducted by V. Vale.

Three nights only, these very special events include all-new acts from Thrillpeddlers, EmCeed by our chubby cherub RJ Owens.  The company will also perform songs from their upcoming summer offering, "Pearls Over Shanghai," a revival of The Cockettes 1971 musical featuring two of the shows originators, Rumi Missabu and Scrumbly Koldewyn.

Capping off the evenings are V.Vales interviews with singer/songwriter Jill Tracy (on 2/12), graphic artist Winston Smith (2/13), and punk legend Jello Biafra with The Stooges sax player Steve MacKay (2/14), taping live for Re/Search Publications Counterculture Hour cable TV show.  

Thrillpeddlers 2009 season opens with Bad Luck, Love, and Lincoln and will be followed up with Audacious Artefacts:  Parisian Grand Guignol (March 12  May 2), The Cockettes musical Pearls Over Shanghai (June 5  August 1), and the tenth annual Shocktoberfest!! (October 1  November 21).
