Landmark Theatres’ roots with THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW go back decades.
Our Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles began screening the film on a regular basis in 1976 and on September 14, 1986, the weekly Saturday night showings launched. These continue to this day, with performances by the shadow cast Sins O’ The Flesh (founded in 1987).
The longest-running midnight movie of all time stars Tim Curry as the kinky yet endearing “transsexual from Transylvania” Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick as his hapless guests Brad and Janet, Meat Loaf as motorcycle-riding rough trade and author Richard O’Brien as the hunchbacked butler Riff Raff. It’s harmless musical fun—a delightful spoof of Hollywood horror movies and Old Dark House melodramas. THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW was the first—and is still the best—interactive movie experience!
