Grab your boa and “Let’s do the Time Warp Again.” Frank-N-Furter! Brad and Janet! Rocky! The Rocky Horror Picture Show will air at the Tahoe Art Haus @ Cinema on Halloween, Oct. 31, 10 pm and 12 am.
Reserve your tickets now.
In case you don’t know, here’s the plot:
A loving couple, a few lost monsters and a sweet transvestite from transsexual Transylvania sing and dance through a campy, sloppy salute to horror movies and sexual liberation.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show is a 1975 musical comedy – a bit science fiction and a bit B horror movie — starring Barry Bostwick as Brad, who along with fiancé Janet, played by Susan Sarandon, find themselves with a flat tire on a cold and rainy night. Looking for a phone, the couple head to a nearby castle, owned by Dr. Frank N. Furter, played by Tim Curry, ending up at the annual Transylvanian Convention.
Starting in 1977, the movie version took on a life of its own, developing a legion of die hard fans, some seeing the show hundreds of times. It was also in 1977 when the audience began talking back to the screen, shouting out the lines to the movie, and making up their own, in what would become one of the first interactive movies to hit the screen.
The Tahoe Art Haus & Cinema brings together the passion of 25-year Tahoe local and filmmaker Steven Siig, who has long wanted to open a theater in Tahoe, and Mark Gogolewski, who has had a dream of helping to breathe new life into Tahoe City. Together, they hope to contribute to the renaissance of Tahoe City and make it the place to be, both in winter and summer.
The Tahoe Art Haus & Cinema offer movies – independent and commercial – and live music. The theatre will also be the home stage of the Tahoe Youth Ballet.
They are open open 10 am to 2 pm, Monday to Thursday, serving up coffee drinks from our espresso machine.
