It may seem like just yesterday to those of us who were there, but it’s been 45-years since the gender-bending cult classic phenomenon “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” debuted in theaters. It starred Tim Curry, Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon, and Meatloaf in a campy story of love. Who knew then that this iconic film would be celebrated by new generations making it the longest theatrical release in film history!
To kick off its 45th-anniversary celebration, the film will be screened at COVID-friendly drive-in theaters and pop-up outdoor venues across the U.S. during September and October. Check your local listings for a showing near you. Then fasten your garter belts, get ready to do the Time Warp, and don’t forget to bring the toast!
