You’re Invited! Rocky Horror Picture Show Coming to Calgary September 3rd!
Let’s do the time warp again!
Back by popular demand, the Rocky Horror Picture Show will be screening on September 3rd at The Globe Cinema, right here in Calgary! This classic musical never grows old.
As part of the 2017 Calgary Pride celebrations, we’ve partnered with the Calgary Underground Film Festival and Hole in the Wall Studios to bring you a fun and interactive experience! Be sure to arrive early (doors open at 10:30 pm), as there will be a pre-show to kick off the evening at 11:30 pm, featuring performances by Phil & Fake Mustache.
Rocky Horror Picture Show originally released in 1975 and instantly became a classic. With the perfect mix of comedy and parody, the film tells the story of a young couple whose car breaks down on a dark and stormy night. They visit a nearby castle to call for help, where they meet a mad scientist/alien transvestite, famous for his singing line, “I’m just a sweet transvestite from Transsexual Transylvania.” Wild times ensue.
The Rocky Horror Picture show quickly gained a cult following. The film is traditionally shown in theatres at midnight, often close to Halloween. Fans have created a tradition of participating in the show by dressing up as the characters, reciting the memorable lines, and singing and dancing throughout the film.
Join in on the fun! Create your costume, practice with the soundtrack, and review the lines. Not handy with costumes? We’ve got you covered. Prop kits will be available for purchase at the door.
