You’ll see double when you dress up and take part in “The ‘Rocky Horror’ Experience” on Sat., Oct. 26, 2013 at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.
That’s because a live cast will act out the story of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on a stage in the theater while the campy cult-classic film plays on the screen above.
“We encourage everyone to dress up as their favorite ‘Rocky Horror’ character and participate in the show," said Chris Loynd, the Aquarium’s marketing director in a release.
Besides dressing up, participants can bring such appropriate items as rubber gloves, newspapers, umbrellas, flashlights and party horns. “Prop bags” also will be available for purchase at the door.
Please, no throwing anything at the Aquarium’s unique IMAX screen!
Released in 1975, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is a send-up of science-fiction B-movies. Newly engaged innocents Brad and Janet (Barry Bostwick and Susan Sarandon) get a flat tire and seek help in a castle owned by Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a “sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania.” Death, sex, Meat Loaf and mayhem ensue.
The action starts at The Maritime Aquarium at 9:00 p.m. Please note that, while the event occurs in the Aquarium’s IMAX Theater, the movie is not be shown in the giant-screen IMAX® format. “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is 98 minutes long and contains brief nudity, sexual content, violence, language, frightening scenes and drug content.
Tickets for “The ‘Rocky Horror’ Experience” are $18 ($16 for Aquarium members). Advance ticket purchases are strongly recommended and available online now at www.maritimeaquarium.org or by calling (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
