This screening will include a live floorshow by Cards 4 Sorrow

A 1975 British film starring Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry, The Rocky Horror Picture Show began its journey as a London stage musical before becoming the longest running cult film of all time.

A box office failure upon initial release, 20th Century Fox re-opened Rocky Horror at midnight in April 1976 and it found its audience. People began attending the screenings in costume, and shouting out lines in response to the film dialogue. From this, the concept of a 'floorshow cast' began.

Over the years, this idea has developed with groups now performing during the screenings. In character and in costume, the casts perform a live lip-synch floorshow on the stage in front of the screen whilst the film plays. Now, almost 40 years on, audience members are still flocking to screenings of the film all over the world. Nothing can beat seeing the film with a live cast in costume, and with audience members singing-along and shouting audience participation lines in time with the film.
