The long success of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which stars actors Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick, has completely redefined the meaning of ‘cult film.’ Used all too often as a synonym for “interesting flop,” the words apply literally to the musical horror comedy, which debuted in 1975 and continues to play nationwide on Fridays and Saturdays at midnight in theaters where it is the object of a cult with its own rituals, vestments, and liturgy, all spontaneously created by the film’s fans. As the longest-running film in cinema history, Rocky Horror has grossed hundreds of millions in box office receipts. Dr. Frank N. Furter, Janet Weiss, Brad Majors, Riff Raff and the rest of one of filmdom’s most beloved, enduring and unusual cast of characters are getting ready to celebrate the fun again at the Sutter Theater Center for the Arts.
Before setting off to the Rocky Horror Picture Show screening, dress the part! Relevant costumes and props include a green lab coat stained with red food coloring, pink latex gloves, a pearl necklace, high heels, wild brown wig, black cape, and heavy makeup. So now you’re all attired and you’ve memorized the steps to the Time Warp, here’s what you’ll need to take, what to do with it and when…rice, for the wedding scene, glow sticks for the “Over At The Frankenstein Place” song, toast, when they propose a toast, party favors so you can be one of the Transylvanians, toilet paper for when they unwrap Rocky and playing cards, for the last song.
The audience participation phenomenon started when the film was first shown in New York in the mid-70s and was duplicated in cities around the country. Let’s keep the tradition going in Yuba-Sutter so come on out and “Let’s do the Time Warp AGAIN! Plenty of free parking is available around the theater.
