Let's do the Time Warp again! Liberty Hall will once again show the cult classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at 8 p.m. Oct. 28 and 11 p.m. Oct. 29. “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is the longest-running theatrical release in film history.
A film adaptation from Richard O'Brien's British musical horror comedy/rock opera, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” features a revered performance by Tim Curry as bizarre mad scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter. Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick play Brad and Janet, a couple who find themselves lost on a cold, rainy night. The madcap musical mayhem begins when the couple takes refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter as he is about to unveil his greatest creation.
Arriving in Downtown Tyler just in time for Halloween, participants are encouraged to dress in costume to either show. The Oct. 29 show features an amazing live reenactment with the movie. The floor show is produced and directed by Coby Archa and friends. Movie scripts and prop bags are included with the ticket price. No outside props are allowed.
Selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry for being “culturally, historically or aesthetically significant,” the film gained notoriety as a midnight movie when audiences began participating with the film in theaters. The film has entered the pop culture lexicon for its many iconic and memorable scenes.
Rated R for foul language and sexually suggestive content, this movie is suitable for those ages 17 and up. Admittance with parental permission is allowed for ages 15 and up.
