It’s time to “Time Warp” again, back to the ‘70s when cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” rocked the world with it’s creepy-meets-kinky screenplay and music.
Join fellow “Rocky Horror” fans and re-enactors Oct. 26 at the Riviera Theatre for the Rocky Horror Picture Party, described on the theater’s website as “one of the sexiest and largest Halloween parties of the season, featuring dancing, cash bar and a costume contest.”
Not only will the film be shown on the big screen, but there will be live pre-movie performances from Eye Candy Burlesque and the “Ladies” of Club Marcella.
The interactive “Rocky Horror Picture Show” experience starts at midnight. According to the movie’s IMDB description, there aren’t any hard-and-fast rules for “Rocky Horror” midnight showings, but some of the most commonly accepted participant traditions include the following:
- Rice (to be thrown at Ralph and Betty’s wedding)
- Water pistols (back row squirts them during rain scene)
- Newspapers (for front and middle rows to shield themselves from rain)
- Flashlights or cigarette lighters (“There’s a Light” verse of “Over at Frankenstein Place”)
- Rubber gloves (during and after the creation speech, Frank snaps his gloves three times)
- Noisemakers (the Transylvanians applaud Frank’s creation - so should you)
- Toilet paper [preferably “Scott’s” brand] (when Brad yells “Great Scott!,” throw a roll)
- Confetti (at the end of the “Charles Atlas” reprise, the Transylvanians throw confetti)
- Toast (when Frank proposes a toast at dinner)
- Party hat (when Frank puts on his hat to wish Rocky happy birthday, so does the audience)
- Bell (“When we made it/did you hear a bell ring?”)
- Cards (“Cards for sorrow/cards for pain”)
The Rocky Horror Picture Party begins at 10 p.m. General admission tickets are $17 in advance, $20 day of the show, and $5 for just the movie.
