Hot patootie, bless my soul, you’ll have twice as much fun when you dress up and take part in “The ‘Rocky Horror’ Experience” on Sat., Oct. 24 at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.
That’s because a live cast will act out the story of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on a stage in the theater while the campy cult-classic film plays on the giant screen above.
Nowhere else can you see ‘Rocky Horror’ playing on a screen that’s six stories tall, with live characters acting out the film right in front of you too, this promises to be spooktacular!
Audience members are encouraged to dress as their favorite characters, and to bring such appropriate items as rubber gloves, newspapers, umbrellas, flashlights and party horns. “Prop bags” containing rice, toast, newspaper, playing cards and a “Time Warp” dance instruction sheet will be available for $4 at the door. But please: no throwing anything at the Aquarium’s unique screen!
Released in 1975, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is a send-up of science-fiction B-movies. Newly engaged innocents Brad and Janet (Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon) get a flat tire and seek help in a castle owned by Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.” Death, sex, Meat Loaf and mayhem ensue.
Show time is 9 p.m. Please note that, while the movie is being show on the Aquarium’s six-story screen, it is not being shown in the trademarked IMAX® format.
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is 98 minutes long and contains brief nudity, sexual content, violence, language, frightening scenes and drug content.
Tickets for “The ‘Rocky Horror’ Experience” are $18 ($15 for Aquarium members). Advance ticket purchases are strongly recommended and available online now at www.maritimeaquarium.org or by calling (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
