This weekend marks the 35th Anniversary of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. There is a very special party planned to celebrate the anniversary, and you’re invited.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show opened on September 26, 1975 at the UA Theater in Westwood. 35 years later, it has become the longest running theatrical release in film history, having never been pulled from theaters by 20th Century Fox since it’s release in 1975. To celebrate, SinsCon, the 35th Anniversary Rocky Horror Picture Show convention will run in Los Angeles this week from Thursday through Saturday, September 23-25.
SinsCon will climax with a very special screening of the movie at the historic Million Dollar Theater (Sid Grauman’s first theater) in downtown Los Angeles on Saturday evening, beginning at 10:00pm. The screening will be hosted by none other than Brad Majors himself, Barry Bostwick. The screening will also feature a live performance by an international shadowcast while the movie plays. This event is not to be missed.
If you’re a Rocky Horror fan, or even if you’ve just always wondered what inspired all of those crazed fans to see it in theaters week after week, this is the event for you. It is rare that the L.A. Conservancy opens the Million Dollar Theater for screenings. It is also rare that Barry Bostwick is present to lead the show. This 35th anniversary may in fact be a once in a lifetime opportunity. Don’t miss it!
