Sat 19 Sep
The Rocky Horror Picture Show [35mm]
directed by Jim Sharman starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick (1975)
This notorious horror parody — a fast-paced potpourri of camp, sci-fi and rock ‘n’ roll, among other things — tracks the exploits of naïve couple Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) after they stumble upon the lair of transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry).
The film, co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien, bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.
