Since its release in 1975, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” has become a cult classic. With a strange and bizarre plot, iconic characters, flashy costumes and oddly catchy songs, this movie has gathered a devoted following over the years.
In honor of its 40th anniversary, Hollywood Forever Cemetery did a screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Halloween. And my goodness… what a party!! This amazing night featured circus performers, shadow dancers, a glam dance party and a themed photo booth. Costumes were required for entry and movie-viewing props were encouraged (anyone who’s been to a midnight showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” knows what I’m talking about!).
Always costume enthusiasts, my sister, my best friend and I dressed up as the singers from the “Lady Marmalade” music video featuring Pink, Lil’ Kim, Christina Aguilera and Mya (but our group Mya wasn’t able to join us that evening).
Here is the music video for reference:
And like usual, picnics were allowed, so we packed a fabulous one!
And then it was show time! Tim Curry gave a very touching introduction to the movie, and then it began…
It was really dark and hard to capture on film, but it looked so beautiful when everyone held up lights during “There’s A Light”.
Also hard to capture on film- how incredibly awesome it was to see an entire audience of a few hundred people all doing the “Time Warp” together. Seriously…it was so cool I could cry.
Let’s do the Time Warp agaaaaaaaaain!!!!!!!!
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” good friends and wine…what an amazing way to spend Halloween!
Our photo even made it on to the Cinespia website. Yes!!
I have loved this movie since I was 10 years old, so getting to be part of such a cool 40th anniversary celebration was truly an amazing experience.
This showing wrapped up the 2015 Hollywood Forever movie season, but be sure to check out their website for other cool cinema events!
