A 1975 British film starring Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW began its journey as a London stage musical before becoming the longest running cult film of all time.
A box office failure upon initial release, 20th Century Fox re-opened ROCKY HORROR at midnight in April 1976 and it found its audience. People began attending the screenings in costume, and shouting out lines in response to the film dialogue. From this, the concept of a ‘floorshow cast’ began. Nothing can beat seeing the film with a live cast in costume, and with audience members singing-along and shouting audience participation lines in time with the film!
Sweethearts Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stuck with a flat tire during a storm, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist. As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky.”
