Rocky Horror Picture Show

A FILM BY: Jim Sharman
STARRING: Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Richard O'Brien, Charles Gray, Meatloaf, Barry Bostwick

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 40 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) performed by the excellent Midnight Madness!

Don’t-Look-Like-a-Virgin tip

Do not throw objects at the screen — that’s just not cool and can damage a very expensive screen. Thanks!
