Plaza Classic Film Festival to Host Free Outdoor Screening of ‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’ Saturday
You don' t have to be a sweet transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania to do The Time Warp, but you're more than welcome to dress as one this Saturday.
The Plaza Classic Film Festival’s Plaza Outdoor series returns Friday and Saturday for the first of two weekends, and it would not be complete without an open-air showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
This year's annual screening of the granddaddy of interactive movies will be Saturday, August 4, at 9 p.m. at the intersection of Mills and Oregon Street, just down the street from the Plaza Theatre.
A concert by local Indie band The Iveys will precede the movie screening beginning at 7:30 p.m. Both the movie and the concert are free.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show still holds the record for the longest theatrical run, never having been out of some form of limited release since its premiere in 1975. The musical salute to sci-fi, horror, B-movies, and rock music stars Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon and singer Meat Loaf.
As is customary at any screening of the cult classic, costumes and loud singing isn't just welcomed, it's encouraged.
