The 5th Annual Windsor Essex Rocky Horror Picture Show in support of Breast Cancer takes place at the Olde Walkerville Theatre on Saturday, October 28, 2017.
Actors, costumes (no nudity please), props, and callbacks are encouraged!
This year, props are included with your admission at the door for your convenience! Virgins (those who’ve never been to a screening) are more then welcome! Please do not bring your own props. Always throw up and back towards the center of the audience, NEVER into the aisles, at the stage, screen or actors! Please respect other movie goers, do not call other movie goers names or throw things at other people. Organizers also ask that you clean up your area before exiting the theater (it makes it much easier on the theater and they are then more likely to invite the organizers back!).
The event features:
Rocky Horror Costume Contest
Time Warp Dance Competition
Pre-Show including lots of games and prizes
Bar and Concession
Wikipedia says, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 British musical comedy horror film and an adaptation of The Rocky Horror Show, a musical stage play, book, music, and lyrics by Richard O’Brien. Directed by Jim Sharman from a screenplay by Sharman and O’Brien, the production is a humorous tribute to the science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s through early 1970s. It has the longest-running theatrical release in film history. It gained notoriety as a midnight movie in 1977 when audiences began participating with the film in theatres. The film has a large international cult following and is one of the most well-known and financially successful midnight movies of all time”.
