Rocky Horror on Friday the 13th
Let's do the Time Warp on Friday the 13th! Be sure to wear your fishnet stockings and hot-pants -- we're doing Rocky Horror summer style! Our ever-popular Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings are legendary (they should be...we've been doing them for 30 years for thousands of fans!) This Friday the 13th we're giving you a warm-up for Halloween. Give yourself over to absolute pleasure!
ABOUT ROCKY HORROR
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a magical phenomenon unlike anything ever before seen onscreen. Borrowing largely from cinema's horror conventions, the film begins as an innocent young couple is stranded at the home of a mad scientist who is building the perfect man. The castle is filled with a most bizarre group of characters who worship their master, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, played magnificently by the fabulously sexy Tim Curry, in leather jacket, pearls, fishnet stockings, and heavy makeup. Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) are forced to examine their own sexuality as the voluptuous doctor releases the hidden desires in each of them.
Based on the stage musical by Richard O'Brien (who also appears in the film as Riff Raff), the film comes alive with unforgettable song-and-dance numbers that have come to represent the sexual liberation of the 1970s. The outstanding costuming and makeup, the terrific acting by a group of relative unknowns (Curry, O'Brien, Bostwick, Sarandon, Nell Campbell, Patricia Quinn, Meat Loaf), and the memorable songs ("Time Warp," "Sweet Tranvestite") help make THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW one of the most bizarrely entertaining and satisfying musicals ever made.
Can we bring props such as toast, water guns, newspapers to the show?
Props are what makes this event so much fun. (Don't ask how late we stay around to clean it all up...)
At the Princess Cinema we allow all of the above as props to enhance the enjoyment of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We do not supply them. All that we ask is that none of these items are tossed at the screen or the film will be turned off. Have fun (and by the way, don't miss The Rocky Horror Show now on stage at the Stratford Festival!)
