"Let's do the Time Warp Again!" The cult classic The Rocky Horror Picture Show

The Rocky Horror Picture Show comes back to the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema for its monthly screening.

Rotten Tomato has an audience rating of 83% and every review I've read says it's a must see on the big screen.

Better still... I've wanted to see this for years, so I guess it's kinda like a Bucket List thing.

This will be an experience to remember!!!

                                        *** WARNING ***

This is NOT a movie for people who are easily shocked for it contains a lot of sexual innuendo and a range of other taboo subjects.

This low-budget freak show/cult classic/cultural institution concerns the misadventures of Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) inside a strange mansion that they come across on a rainy night. After the wholesome pair profess their love through an opening song, their car breaks down in the woods, and they seek refuge in a towering castle nearby. Greeting them at the door is a ghoulish butler named Riff Raff (Richard O'Brien), who introduces them to a bacchanalian collection of partygoers dressed in outfits from some sort of interplanetary thrift shop. The host of this gathering is a transvestite clad in lingerie, Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry), a mad scientist who claims to be from another planet. With assistants Columbia (Nell Campbell) and Magenta (Patricia Quinn) looking on, Frank unveils his latest creation -- a figure wrapped in gauze and submerged in a tank full of liquid. With the addition of colored dyes and some assistance from the weather, Frank brings to life a blonde young beefcake wearing nothing but skimpy shorts, who launches into song in his first minute of life. Just when Brad and Janet think things couldn't get any stranger, a biker (Meat Loaf) bursts onto the scene to reclaim Columbia, his ex-girlfriend. When Frank kills the biker, it's clear that Brad and Janet will be guests for the night, and that they may be next on Frank's list -- whether for murder or carnal delights is uncertain. And just what is that mystery meat they're eating for dinner, anyway?

Tickets: $11 (Regular), $8 (Bloor members)

    Another one checked off. Thanks to everyone that made it out. That was messed up, but what a blast!!! I've never had so much fun in a theater.
    For those that couldn't make it out I will do it again, just give me 6 months to absorb what I just witnessed.

    Sorry to do this, but realizing it might be tough to do both this and the band, so I'll give up my spot. I hope to make it out to another event soon.

    Know where you're meeting beforehand? (I know Pauper's is closeby.) I may be a going to see a band later, but would love to meet beforehand.

    Hello all. We'll be meeting in front of the theater for 11 and going in shortly thereafter. According to the cinema there's no need to buy tickets in advance but I'll be getting mine before we meet just in case.

    It's been suggested that we meet somewhere in the area for a small bite to eat and/or a drink before the show. What a great idea Celia. There are a lot of restaurants right next to and across from the theater. If you want to hang out before the show for either/or add a comment here and we'll figure something out. I'm thinking 9:30-10.

    I know it's a late show... but don't bail. You know you always feel better if you follow through and get out and do something.

    My cell is[masked] if you need to get in touch with me.

    Pete,

    Wow! Susan Sarandon doesn't seem to age. I wonder what her daughter will look like when she's 60?

  • Celia O

    Do we need to be there early to get tickets or will you get them beforehand, Mr Organizer?

    November 14, 2013

    • Dutch

      You are responsible for getting the tickets yourself Ms. Member of the best meetup group ever. The movie doesn't start until 11:30. I believe you can purchase tickets on line. I left a message at the cinema this morning to get their suggestions but haven't heard back from them. Ill update the meetup as soon as they do.

  • Annemarie

    Sorry, cannot do the date. It is not on my personal list; I "did it" already 15 years ago and loved it! Have fun!

    In the old days at the Roxy, one would bring confetti, newspaper, a water pistol, a bic lighter, toast, and playing cards. Wonder if the Bloor Cinema knows about this? Be prepared! Some people know all the lines and shout them out, along with the comeback lines that became popular over the years! There may be A LOT of participation from the audience!

      They've substituted rice for confetti but everything still goes. I'm bringing my water gun.

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.
