Now See This! Cult favorite ‘Rocky Horror’ returns to the Tivoli
- November 2nd and 3rd, 11:55 p.m.
The epitome of the cult classic is back! This weekend, the Tivoli Theatre will be showing “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at midnight on Friday and Saturday night, Nov. 2 and 3. The film, a unique musical starring Tim Curry and Susan Sarandon, spoofs Hollywood horror and science fiction flicks. Its quirky style and catchy songs have helped it develop its cult status. Its story is a simple one: a newly engaged couple becomes lost in a storm and takes refuge in a nearby castle. The twist is that the owner of the house is a self-proclaimed “Sweet Transvestite” from transsexual Transylvania—the Annual Transylvanian Convention he is hosting is the strangest party you’ve ever seen, full of colorful guests. From beginning to end, the film constantly entertains with catchy songs, creative choreography and a thrilling cast. It is necessary viewing for any cinema buff and always worth a midnight watch for anyone else who has seen it before. This weekend’s shows will feature the live shadow cast, the Samurai Electricians, truly making it a night to remember. Despite being more than 35 years old, the movie’s distinct style has made it a timeless staple of cinema. So if you are dying to do the time warp again, stop by the Tivoli this weekend.
