Rocky Horror Picture Show - Oct 31 2016 - 11:20 - Original Princess
THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW is a magical phenomenon unlike anything ever before seen onscreen. Borrowing largely from cinema's horror conventions, the film begins as an innocent young couple is stranded at the home of a mad scientist who is building the perfect man. The castle is filled with a most bizarre group of characters who worship their master, Dr. Frank-N-Furter, played magnificently by the fabulously sexy Tim Curry, in leather jacket, pearls, fishnet stockings, and heavy makeup. Brad (Barry Bostwick) and Janet (Susan Sarandon) are forced to examine their own sexuality as the voluptuous doctor releases the hidden desires in each of them.
Based on the stage musical by Richard O'Brien (who also appears in the film as Riff Raff), the film comes alive with unforgettable song-and-dance numbers that have come to represent the sexual liberation of the 1970s. The outstanding costuming and makeup, the terrific acting by a group of relative unknowns (Curry, O'Brien, Bostwick, Sarandon, Nell Campbell, Patricia Quinn, Meat Loaf), and the memorable songs ("Time Warp," "Sweet Tranvestite") help make THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW one of the most bizarrely entertaining and satisfying musicals ever made.
For 2016 advance tickets are ONLY AVAILABLE ONLINE
Can we bring props such as toast, water guns, newspapers to the show?
Props are what makes this annual SOLD out event so much fun. (Don't ask how late we stay around to clean it all up...)
At the Princess Cinema we allow all of the above as props to enhance the enjoyment of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. We do not supply them. All that we asked is that none of these items are tossed at the screen or the film will be turned off. Have fun & arrive early to make sure everyone can see the best costumes in Waterloo Region!
