Rocky Horror Picture Show

Hi All!

Since this was my idea and some folks seemed to like it, I'm going to host this event. A little about RHPS - taken from
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 musical parody of science-fiction and horror B-movies, directed by Jim Sharman with a screenplay by Richard O’Brien and Sharman, based on a play entitled The Rocky Horror Show by O’Brien, who also wrote all music and lyrics.

Tickets for the show are $6.50.

The audience is admitted into the theater at midnight, but due to pre-show activities, the film starts between 12:30 and 12:45. The film is 100 minutes long, so the theater lets out somewhere around 2:30-ish, depending on the night.

Oh, my God, I have a “V” on my forehead? Why?! This means that you are a “virgin.” If you have never seen the movie performed with a live cast, then you are labeled a VIRGIN, whether you’re eight-years old or seventy. We just might brand you with a lipstick or eye-linered “V” on your forehead. No matter what, you are new to the Rocky Horror experience and there are rules you must follow.
During the pre-show activities, the emcees will tell all the virgins to come down to the stage. If you are a virgin, it is in your best interest to come down and join the festivities…not because bodily harm will be inflicted on you if you don’t, but because you are, off the bat, going against everything Rocky Horror stands for.
The backbone of Rocky Horror is audience participation. While this does include the yelling and screaming during the movie, but it also includes all newcomers be given the proper welcome.

    This was an “interesting” experience. I was giving a heads up regarding audience participation, but didn’t expect this. Of course I get to sit next to the guy with the loudest voiceover. I was thinking before Abby organized this that I never watched Rocky Horror before, and thanks to Abby I got to experience it in the theater. Thanks Abby for taking the time to organize this. It was good to take some time off from my crazy schedule and meet some very cool people. Looking forward to attending more group events.

    Tamer and Todd, the theater is very small. As of right now, we cannot accept any more RSVPs. If some folks change their RSVP to no, I'll open it up again.

    This will be my first event and I was wondering if I can invite a friend.

    It says RSVP's are closed for this meetup. I assume that means all the spots are filled already. Is there going to be a waiting list?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
