The Rocky Horror Picture Show at Clinton Street Theater
Since 1978, Clinton Street Theater has screened The Rocky Horror Picture Show weekly. Moviegoers are encouraged to dress up as one of the characters and bring along theater approved props for a night of fun and outrageous entertainment.
So what’s the movie all about? The 1975 motion picture plot follows a newly engaged couple, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss, who are lost with a flat tire on a dark, rainy night. Seeking a telephone to call for help, the couple walks to a nearby castle where they meet a group of downright out of this universe people who are holding an Annual Transylvanian Convention. Soon an unbelievable night unfolds, led by the mad scientist Frank-n-Furter.
The musical numbers, signature moves and audience participation make this an ideal film to watch with a crowd.
Now it’s time to bust out your best costume and practice your Time Warp. The movie begins at midnight, preceded by doors opening at 11 p.m., and the pre-show starting at 11:30 p.m.
The Clinton Street Cabaret joins the fun with special preshow performances on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Saturdays of the month.
On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month are for newbies and long-tie fans of the film.
