Where: Tybee Post Theater
Here we go again! We had so much fun last year, we’ve decided to make an annual event out of this low-budget freak show/cult classic/cultural institution about the misadventures of Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon), as they spend the night in the gothic castle of the cross-dressing alien Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry) and his Transylvanian posse.
A campy beacon of sexuality and self-acceptance, The Rocky Horror Picture Show premiered in the U.S. in 1975, at the Westwood Theater in Los Angeles. Over the next four decades, it would be transformed from failed movie-musical to underground phenomenon to rebellious coming-of-age ritual to mainstream icon, all thanks to the hardcore fans who flocked to its late-night showings. And we saw all manner of Frank N. Furter, Magenta and Riff Raff costumes at last year’s sold-out screening. Costumes are cool. No squirt guns, please.
We’re not doing the traditional midnight showing, because our neighbors wouldn’t take kindly to a crazy cult of devotees stumbling out of the Theater in the wee hours! And we love our neighbors! Rated R.
