There will be food and drink for purchase, and Rocky Horror “props” will be for sale – audiences are invited to bring their own props too – confetti, rice, umbrellas, newspapers, toast, flashlights, rubber gloves, noisemakers, toilet paper, party hats and all – the only caveat is that no squirting water will be allowed in the theatre and hot dog throwing will not be encouraged.  There will be prizes for “Audience Choice (Under 20)”, “Audience Choice (20 and over)”, “Most Creative”, and “Best Likeness” (to a Rocky Horror character).

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 musical comedy horror film and an adaptation of The Rocky Horror Show, a musical stage play by Richard O’Brien. Directed by Jim Sharman from a screenplay by Sharman and O’Brien, the production is a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through early 1970s. It introduces Tim Curry and features Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick along with cast members from the original Kings Road production presented at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 1973.

Still in limited release nearly four decades after its premiere, it is the longest-running theatrical release in film history. It gained notoriety as a midnight movie in 1977 when audiences began participating with the film in theatres. The film has a large international cult following and is one of the most well-known and financially successful midnight movies of all time. In 2005, the film was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant”.

The movie is rated R – children under 17 require accompanying parent or adult guardian.  A Kahilu Theatre donor has provided funds so that one under 17 with one adult will get in free.
