“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” started out as a live stage production, and was inspired by the classic movie, “Frankenstein” starring Boris Karloff. The story follows a young couple who take a wrong turn on their way home from a wedding and encounter a strange group of extraterrestrials called Transylvanians lead by Dr. Frank-N-Furter. The movie has been a favourite Friday midnight show for decades having been in continuous release since 1975. Long-time viewers yell catch phrases at the screen and dress up as their favourite characters from the movie. This has lead to numerous amateur reproductions often staged in front of the screen during the show. The movie examines life, death, infidelity, alternative sexuality and cannibalism. It has even been featured in an episode of the sitcom “The Drew Carey Show.” “This movie will provide a unique cultural experience for the people of Sarnia-Lambton,” says Reference Librarian Jeff Beeler.
This movie is rated Adult Accompaniment by the Ontario Film Review Board for sexuality, adult situations and partial nudity. Please call the Reference Department at 519 337-3291 for more information and to confirm your attendance.
