The Rocky Horror Picture Show (15)
A legend in its own running time, this glorious cult classic is our alternative Valentine’s Day gala. Whether you’ve seen it 20 times or can just hum along to “Let’s Do the Time Warp” join us at the Town Hall for a truly special event. As well as the film, we’ll have surprises, dancing after the film and, without giving too much away, some help from our friends at the Llangollen Operatic Society.
If you don’t know anything about the film, this will get you up to warp speed: Wholesome, newly-engaged Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon), stranded by a broken down car, discover the eerie mansion of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite scientist. During their wild stay at Fran-N-Furter’s house Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker (Meat Loaf) and a creepy butler (Richard O’Brien). Through elaborate dances and rock songs, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named “Rocky”…what could possibly go wrong?

“It’s like art-rockers Roxy Music let loose on Frankenstein – ludicrous, but oddly compelling. And it even stars Meat Loaf.” Total Film
“Simply a cult classic. See it once and laugh about it at dinner parties for the rest of your adult life. Or go along to the interactive viewings, dress up, and sing along. It’s your call.” Empire
“The film itself is a lot of fun — but the audience-participation phenomenon has turned it into a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience.” TV Guide
“The definition of kitsch, Rocky Horror is a campy, musical spoof on the haunted-castle horror movie, encompassing a ’70s glam-rock world of androgyny with characters that are more than offbeat.” Common Sense Media
