Rocky Horror Picture Show Returns To Washington Theatre Halloween Weekend
It's just a jump to the left, then a step to the right into the Washington Theatre on October 27th as they do the Time Warp again with a just announced showing of the cult classic film Rocky Horror Picture Show, starring Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon. And they aren't messing around with screen size on this one!
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.
I was unable to go last year, I had prior commitments to the Quincy Historical Society and their Haunted Cemetery tours, but certainly hoping to make it this year. Last year, the show started at 8pm and tickets were just five dollars, with prop bags being sold for an additional five dollars, and I can't imagine it would change that much since. Make sure to follow the event page on Facebook to catch any updates.
I will caution that while it's a fun show with colorful characters and lots of music, it's most certainly not a family event. Leave the kids at home, mark your calendar for October 27th, and enjoy this wonderful night of mature Halloween entertainment.
