The showings will take place on October 23 and 24 at 9 p.m. and midnight. Admission is $12 and includes a RHPS prop kit. No outside props will be allowed inside the theater.
Rocky Horror is the first and only true audience participation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props at various times during the film. The audience participation phenomenon was observed as early as the film's first run in 1975, when it bombed during limited engagements in 7 of 8 cities.
Rocky Horror Picture Show was later re-released as a midnight movie where audience participation really began to flourish. Though the name can be deceiving, Rocky Horror is not a horror film. Rather, it is a rock-musical send-up or old science-fiction and horror films.
