Starting the evening with the ineffable Super DJ Dooper twisting your straight rock sensibilities into shapes amenable to reception of the horrorful feature presentation at 10pm. The feature brings the classic stage rock musical to the screen in gloriously camp style. Great tunes, wild characters in extraordinary costumes and an ever-expanding plot will induce a mass of exuberant audience participations and/or send people screaming from the theatre. Super DJ Dooper will return to put some shape on the aftermath.

ROCKY HORROR is the first and only true audience partici-(SAY IT!)-pation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props various times during the film. The audience participation phenomenon was observed as early as the film’s first run in 1975 (when it bombed during limited engagements in 7 of 8 cities), and was later re-released as a midnight movie where the audience participation really began to flourish.

Enough history! Further information may be found here.
