Released by 20th Century Fox in 1975 and based off a successful stage musical “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” notoriously flopped upon release, only to soon develop a rabid following on the midnight moving circuit. Still running in limited release, it is the longest running theatrical release in film history, and was added to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2005. The film stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick, Meat Loaf, and Richard O’Brien—who also wrote the story and music.
A parody of 1950 sci-fi/horror B movies, mashed up with the glam rock and punk rock stylings of the 1970s, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” tales the story of Brad and Janet. Two young, ordinary, healthy kids, who suffer a flat tire on a lonely country road on a rainy night. The two seek shelter at a nearby castle, where they meet Dr. Frank-N-Furter, who is a scientist from another world working on a creation of his own in his lab, along with his assistants Riff Raff, Magenta, and Columbia.
“Rocky Horror is a true phenomenon” says Andy Ross, Film Columnist and host of the evening, “It’s become an amazing experience to see in a theater, with everyone interacting with the movie in a way truly unique. I’m so excited that we’ll have this movie at The Capitol. This will be a must see event!” “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is rated R, 17 and under will be admitted only with a parent or guardian. Parents are also advised that some of the audience participation call backs feature strong language.
