The movie stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original stage production. It pays tribute to sci-fi and horror B movies.
It became a popular midnight movie and became a cult phenomenon in 1976 while it was being shown at the Waverly Theatre in New York. After five months into the film’s midnight run, the audience began to shout lines at the characters on screen. This became standard practice at Rocky Horror showings everywhere, and fans began to dress as the characters and bring props.
The film is still extremely popular today. Cult film participants have created their own Rocky Horror fan sites, and audience participation scripts can be viewed online. It is still in limited release almost 40 years later, and it has the longest-running theatrical release in film history.
Come see The Rocky Horror Picture Show this Halloween at the Castle Theatre! Tickets are available here for $12 or at the box office.
