The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Halloween Edition!

Fri, Oct 29th, 2021 to Sun, Oct 31st, 2021

Happy Halloween 2021! Join us as we do the Time Warp again! In this Music Box Halloween tradition, the classic cult musical is screened with a cast of actors provided by Midnight Madness who ensure that what’s happening in the audience is just as entertaining as what is on screen.

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 — a bizarre musical co-starring Meat Loaf and Richard O’Brien — bombed in its initial release but later gained a cult following at midnight showings.

For 45 years, THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW has delighted audiences and terrified parents. The Music Box Theatre is the proud Chicago home of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW. Every screening has a shadowcast of the film (that’s actors acting in front of the screen during the film), and the Halloween screenings are known to sell out!
