Rocky Horror Picture Show
The Electric Cinema
Joey Vivo presents a midnight screening of the cult classic 1975 film The Rocky Horror Picture Show; a satirical tribute to science fiction and the horror B movies of the 30s to early 70s that heaps on piles of sexuality, sensuality, frivolity and hedonism. Born from a 1973 musical stage production, Jim Sharman and Richard O’Brian quickly turned it into the phenomenal screenplay in 1975 following its quick ascension to cult classic status.
