It was amazing when I was 14 and it was the only thing we could actually do at that age that made us feel rebellious and cool. I mean come on, once a month getting to go out, dressing up all hussy-like and watching the same damn movie every month and throwing shit and screaming. Eventually we hit high school, got cars and found alcohol and sex. RHPS seemed to lose its appeal a bit since then, we occasionally still go though, if there is absolutely nothing else to do and we're usually pretty throwed.

I still get a huge kick out of it. Someday I want to see the play version. Some of my friends were angling to do that as our senior class play in high school, but surprise, surprise, it didn't fly. Even better, the first time I watched it was with my mom, who was appalled that I hadn't seen it before.

I love the first 2/3 of the movie. But towards the end it just starts getting... uncomfortable.

What I love most about this movie is that in the end, after all this (intentionally) crappy plot, suddenly, out of nowhere... Philosophy that reduces humankind to it's actual size in all four dimensions.
And crawling on the planet's face, some insects, called 'The Human Race'. Lost in time. Lost in space. And meaning.

Then there is this damn good music. It just rocks. There's the early Meat Loaf in a adorable small role, and he gets killed! All bloody and gross by the scientist, driven maaaaaaaaaaad. Who could actually not love this? Bisexual Tim Curry in make-up, high heels and corset relaxing on a throne is one of God's gift to human kind. I firmly believe this. Plus there is gay sex. Twice. Once before and once after they dine on a coffin with Eddy's bloody corpse in it, if I remember correctly.
On a more serious note: I find the integration of the narrator into the plot neat, especially during the Time Warp scenes. The three main characters are well thought out and manage to represent the parodied stereotypes in a way that surpasses old jokes and slap stick.
I <3 this movie.

I've yet to see it done live or even hear about it being performed, but its one of my favorite movies I need to get everyone to do the time warp at the next school dance.

I used to really like it, I have to say that I haven't seen in ages though.

My students union plays the time warp most club nights, we all get up and do the dance. We're so cool. :wink:

I've actually been in a production of it, as an extra. The guy who played Frankenfurter has never quite escaped from it!

Is it wrong I kind of fancy Tim Currie in that film?

... Sorry. Anyway, I used to really like it but my love for it dwindled after every re-watch. So uh, yeah. I don't love this film. Tim Curry was gorgeous in it, though.

Okay, I have to get you in the right place here: 1983. If you were a kid then (or born after that), then pretend. Think about a middle-aged, very conservative woman, button-up shirtwaist dresses, comfortable flats, house in the suburbs, two nice kids and a nice husband. I'll call her "Joan". She and I were both enrolled in a summer program (I was pretty young at the time), and a group of the younger folks decided to go see RHPS. Joan wasn't sure if she wanted to see it or not, as she had never heard of the movie. She asked me what the plot was, and I replied, "Oh, it's the story of a wedding and what happened afterwards."

Which is true, but she didn't talk to me for a couple of days after that.

In our monthly showing they have it on the screen, and then have the cast performing it simultaneously in front of the seats, in the aisle, climbing on top of patrons, etc. There is the normal screaming of lines, throwing of various objects, squirt guns, and singing. Also before hand we have the "Oath" everyone recites, the "devirginising" of the RHPS virgins, and various audience participation contests and lewd games. The back two aisles are full of people having sex throughout the movie, people have no grasp on physical boundaries of Basic Human Decency. It is so much fun, although a little shocking when I was younger. The screaming of made up lines of course makes the movie. "I'm lucky, you're lucky, we're all lucky "The banister's lucky!"" hehe.

Last year I went to the RHS at my local theatre with a group of friends (in drag, naturally), it was the most fun ever :p... Particularly when we walked back through town in-costume... Sadly, someone lost my camera with all the photos on.

Love this movie. Last year I got to see an "in-person" performance - my brother, his girlfriend and I all dressed up, it was loads of fun.

There was a showing at a local arthouse film place just a couple of weeks ago. I wandered around shirtless, and my boyfriend climbed into lingerie and sparkly fishnet. (It was funny when we ran into people who recognized him. Needless to say, all pictures of that night remain untagged on Facebook.)

Perhaps I'm a strange minority. I neither love nor hate this movie. I've seen it twice now, once with the whole audience interaction bit. I think some of the songs are fun and all, but other than that, meh. And further blasphemy, Tim Curry, meh. I supposed I expected much more of it since I heard lots of people talk about it and how awesome it was supposed to be.

Went to see a live show in London earlier this year with a friend who refused to dress up :( but it was just brililant. Frank N Furter was no Tim Curry but he was very very good, and once again demonstrated the alarming sexual attraction of the character (when the actor can pull it off, obviously, cudos to him too).

I rather love RHPS, and I think I've memorized most of the movie by this point. I've only seen it live once, but I had no voice, so I'll be going again, I'm sure.

And going to see it live requires a certain special attitude, but if you have it, it can be so much fun.

[quote="Cabhan"]

And that 'special attitude' is called intoxicated. I now realise that with each additional time I attend a performance, I require an additional shot. Not to say that Tim Curry isn't dead sexy of course. I am just tiring of finding rice in my corset and getting beaned in the head with toast.

I only really saw it once in the proper element, but it was a lot of fun. I was kinda weirded out by the "actors" dressed up (I was 14 or 15... dudes in drag on the screen was one thing, in person it was weird). I still can't see Tim Curry without thinking of the movie, though, and he's always Dr. Frankenfurter playing a clown (IT) or a butler (Clue (?)), or whatever. The mayor on [i]Spin City always makes me yell "DAMNIT! JANET! I WANNA SCREW!" When Paradise by the Dashboard Lights comes on I'm compelled to yell "Oh no! Not Meatloaf again!"

I really need to see this movie again. :)

This is a good summary of it.

It was one of my favorite things to go to back in high school, one of the theaters played it every week.

I have a question to ask, but its a spoiler to those that haven't seen fight club:

Spoiler:
Did your group chant "His name was Robert Paulson" after meatloaf dies....better yet, how many of you didnt really get it until seeing fight club and burst out laughing during said scene?

I saw it once or twice with the audience participation. That and the Blue Brothers. I got the impression that the script for the audience was written long ago, and followed to the letter. So no references that recent.

Same people going back every month, and it got a little stale.

Eventually the theater stopped showing Blues Brother altogether (they didn't clean up so well.) and last I checked RHPS was down to every 2nd month or so.

I saw it some 60 times around 1980, 2 or 3 times since then.
Small town college geek, nothing better to do on saturday night.
It was a stage play, and they made a movie, and it about covered its costs but wasn't a big hit.
But there was an entrepreneur somewhere, i read an article once but forget the details, that had this idea that if a movie theatre played the same movie every saturday night, people would start going, and they did. He tried eraserhead first, and it kinda worked, but the next year he tried RHPS, and it took off and has never stopped.

Did you know there's a sequel, Shock Treatment? It's not -as- good, but it's good, in a campy kind of way.

It's an absolutely horrible movie, but of course you go for the interactive experience. Unfortunately, I haven't yet done it, but I hope to one day.

And I do have to laugh at the irony of eating Meat Loaf.

It's MUCH better to see on stage. Especially if you dress up to go see it (and you'll be the minority if you DON'T dress up to go see it). I believe I was in fishnets, a ripped open white shirt and my hair slicked back and small pants. We went out to a few bars around the theater afterwards. Suffice to say we got a few looks. :)

It all gives you a strange feeling of antici.....................

It's pretty neat. Some friends of mine used to do a midnight show at a local theater, and I went to see it once. It duplicates the feel of something that's had all the sense squeezed out of it by years of cult popularity, but as far as I can tell there was never any sense to begin with.

I know this thread's been dead a while, but I'm going to my first cinema screening of it on Halloween (I've seen it a few times on the tv, but with very minimal participation) and was wondering if you had any advice for a virgin?

The main thing I'm not sure about is how much participation there'll be. I'm pretty sure the cinema shows it at most once a year and the latest showing (which is the one I'm going to) is still very early (it starts about nine).

In short, I'm not sure what to expect and was hoping you guys might have a better idea.

The level of participation can vary depending on the size of the theater, and the size of the audience.

Be ready to get really messy, as they throw shit all over the place.

Be ready to shout things. Here's a handy guide as to what one should say when one witnesses any scene during said movie.

Also, you're a virgin? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! Been nice knowing you.

Seeing it at home, either aired on TV or on video, doesn't count. It's like saying you've ridden a roller coaster just because you watched a video of a roller coaster from the point of view of a rider. You're just as much a virgin as your friends. However, memorizing those guides between now and when you go see it will, in a way, "de-virginize" you.

Eh, my experience is that it's difficult to enjoy it with participation if you haven't seen it without participation.
I mostly post over at LessWrong now.

Seeing it at home, either aired on TV or on video, doesn't count. It's like saying you've ridden a roller coaster just because you watched a video of a roller coaster from the point of view of a rider. You're just as much a virgin as your friends. However, memorizing those guides between now and when you go see it will, in a way, "de-virginize" you.


Yeah, I know, but they don't :lol:

Yeah, tvtropes also suggested this so we have all watched it at least once without (well with a little bit, one of the people had a set of callouts on their laptop).

Truth be told, I'm a virgin to when it comes to the movie.

While I was going through those sites, I did see one thing that interested me. While some parts are expected and required, other parts are optional, or can be changed. One recurring thing is to ask a question right before a character says "YES!". One of the sites recommended asking questions or saying things that were more concurrent to present day.

For example:

You: Is Justin Bieber really a girl?
Someone in movie: YES!
PRG

Well now I've seen it. It was a shame it wasn't a proper midnight showing. There was one other group of people throwing the props and only two people in costume (Magenta and Columbia) and we were the only group doing any callouts.

We managed to get a lot of laughs from the audience even if a steward did come and stand ominously next too us for a few minutes.
