Rocky Horror Picture Show Hits the Washington Theatre Halloween Weekend
It's just a jump to the left, then a step to the right into the Washington Theatre on October 28th as they do the Time Warp again with a showing of the cult classic film Rocky Horror Picture Show, starring Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon.
If you've never been a live showing, you are in for a treat. I've done both the stage show and the live "audience participation" movie screening and both are a lot of fun. Everybody's up and dancing and singing along, and shouting lines and throwing props and food. It's just a fun, communal experience with your fellow film-goers.
Rocky Horror Picture Show holds the record for longest theatrical release in history, as it still technically hasn't ended its theatrical run since it opened over 40 years ago. That's the enduring popularity of this bizarre, wildly entertaining ode to bad 50s era sci-fi films.
The doors of the Washington Theatre open at 7:30pm, with the evenings festivities kicking off at 8pm on October 28th. Tickets are just five dollars, with prop bags being sold for an additional five dollars. For more information, you can check out the Facebook page for the event.
They do caution that it's not a family event, as it's probably not suitable for the kids. I'm one to agree on that. But if you're looking for some more mature Halloween entertainment, make sure you add this to your calendar.
