The Rocky Horror Picture Show
Back by popular demand. The Historic Midwest Theater announces “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” will return to the Midwest Theater on Saturday, October 19th @ 8:00pm. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the longest running film of all time, a true cult classic, and the original “audience participation” movie!
Movie Synopsis: The Rocky Horror Picture Show – based on the stage musical “The Rocky Horror Show” by Richard O’Brien – invites you take a trip to The Frankenstein Place, a Gothic castle filled with some of the most “unconventional conventionalists” you’ve ever met – tap-dancing Columbia, hunchbacked faithful handyman Riff Raff and his sister Magenta, motor maniac Eddie, and cinema’s most dangerous mad scientist in high heels, Dr. Frank-N-Furter! Sweet and virginal Brad and Janet had no idea what laid in store for them when they walked into this weird household – and neither did the world. As the film went on to become an “audience participation” phenomenon complete with “call backs” (listen as the audience hurls words at the screen!), props, and sing-alongs (EVERY Rocky Horror screening is a sing-along – so raise your voice and join us!). An international phenomena celebrating over 40 years of subversive decadence, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is truly a film to be experienced on the big screen.
