*ROCKY HORROR? birthday screening in LA this weekend*




Rice? Check. Toast? Check. Playing cards, toilet paper, fishnets, squirt gun and lighter? Better find all of those indispensable items before this Saturday. Forget 3-D; the ultimate audience-participation movie is about to celebrate its birthday!



In honor of THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW?s 35th anniversary, lucky Los Angelanos, transplanted Transylvanians and assorted wild, untamed things will be able to Time Warp again and celebrate in style at the bash this Saturday, September 25 at LA?s historic Million Dollar Theater (307 South Broadway)?which itself has been seen in dozens of movies, most notably BLADE RUNNER. There will be a full pre-show and live performance accompanying the film, plus a very special guest in attendance: the one and only Barry Bostwick, who plays the film?s earnest and clueless hero, Brad Majors. Poor Barry is sure to be reminded that ?castles still don?t have phones, ****,? so kudos to him for showing up. Be sure to ask him about MEGAFORCE! The only weird part is that the greatest midnight movie of all time will be starting at 10 p.m.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (RHPS) celebrates its 35th anniversary at a convention in downtown Los Angeles, September 23-25, that includes a screening of the cult classic film alongside live performances and several other events.



Star of the film Barry Bostwick will be honored and participate in a Q&A after the film at the historic Million Dollar Theater downtown. The actor who starred in the hit television sitcom Spin City with Michael J. Fox played Brad Majors in the film opposite Susan Sarandon.


The three-day conference includes panel discussions, a pajama party, dance, and costume pageant surrounding the 1975 movie, popular for its midnight showings and audience participation which comprises responding to dialogue, singing along to numbers, and other RHPS antics.


The screening includes a live all-star "shadowcast" with costumed performers from around the world taking roles. Dressing up is mandatory.


Adapted from Richard O'Brien's British musical horror comedy/rock opera, the film was produced by rock'n'roll impresario Lou Adler with Michael White. It stars Tim Curry (Clue, Home Alone 2) as Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.


The story follows a young couple lost on the road as they enter a strange mansion and learn to do the "time-warp" dance with wild party guests, including rocker Meat Loaf.


A Blu-Ray version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show will be released October 19. This deluxe edition with a high-definition image and audio includes exclusive features such as "Rocky-oke: Sing It!" Shadowcast Performance, an unrated Vintage Callback Track, Prop Box, and a documentary, as well as Deleted Scenes, Audio Commentary and more.


For a limited time, the 35th Anniversary edition also includes a collectible 24-page booklet featuring shots from rock photographer Mick Rock. The $35 package is available on Amazon for $18.49.


As the longest-running theatrical release in film history, the RHPS film was selected by the US Library of Congress for preservation in the National Film Registry as "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."

Geeze, if they're going to show it 12 times, you'd think they could run it backwards at least once!
