Saturday evening, we had a great time celebrating Alyson’s upcoming birthday with her and her husband. After eating, enjoying a few drinks, and laughing our behinds off, we went to a late-night viewing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show.
I had never seen the film in a theater and we were excited about the crowd participation that we had read about online. A two-dollar upgrade on the movie ticket got each person a trash bag filled with rice, toilet paper, squirt toy, toast, party hat, rubber glove, newspaper, noise-maker, and a few cards. Each of these items were thrown into the air to coincide with a particular scene in the film. It was great fun to see that level of audience participation and to watch several attendees converge on the open areas of the theater to do the “Time Warp”.
The movie is atrocious, but it does have some redeeming humor. I thoroughly enjoyed Tim Curry as the transvestite, Dr. Frank-N-Furter. I must admit to finding him a bit appealing, which is probably the scariest thing you’ll hear this Halloween.
