THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW Experience Comes To The Drive-In In San Marcos

CCAE Theatricals in association with The California Center for the Arts, Escondido announce the cast of the cult-classic horror spoof The Rocky Horror Picture Show. "Rocky Horror" is based on a musical by the same name and stars Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, and Barry Bostwick. The Rocky Horror Picture Show helped shape conditions of cult film's transition from art-house to grind-house style. The film developed a cult following in 1976 at the Waverly Theatre in New York, which developed into a standardized ritual. This tradition will continue at the Drive-In at Cal State San Marcos; the film screening will come complete with a shadow cast, performing musical numbers live on stage, while they also play overhead on screen! One Night Only on Friday, October 30th at 8pm. For tickets, call 800-988-4253 or visit www.artcenter.org/event/drive-in-rocky-horror-picture-show.

There's a light over at Frankenstein place! A newly engaged couple gets caught in a storm and stop at the home of a mad transvestite scientist, Dr Frank-N-Furter, unveiling his new creation, a sort of Frankenstein-style monster in the form of an artificially made, fully grown, physically perfect muscle man named "Rocky", complete "with blond hair and a tan".
