A friend and I were just talking about a theater that showed ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show,’ but told moviegoers to behave themselves. No shouting at the screen, no throwing popcorn, no dancing in the aisles.

rocky-horror-picture-show-35th-anniv-blurayOk, seriously. You’ve got a theater full of drag queens, and they’re supposed to behave themselves? Or for that matter, just regular folks who enjoy that shared ‘Rocky Horror’ experience? That’s sacrilege.

If you live near one of those “behave yourselves” theaters, this giveaway is for you. It’s the 35th anniversary of ‘The Rocky Horror Picture Show,’ which means I’m giving away TWO Limited Edition Blu-ray copies of the famed cult classic that follows rain-soaked Brad and Janet (Barry Bostwick, Susan Sarandon) as they take refuge in the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite mad scientist from outer space who’s about to unveil his greatest creation!

TO ENTER: Leave a comment below telling me your ‘Rocky Horror’ experiences. Or if you have none, tell me that, too. Deadline is midnight on Saturday, Oct. 30, 2010. A winner will be drawn randomly, and I’ll email the winner after the contest ends.

This edition includes both the U.S. and U.K. versions of the film, along with original photos by Mick Rock, two additional musical numbers (‘Superheroes’ and ‘Once in a While’), audio commentary by Richard O’Brien and Patricia Quinn, cool pressbook and poster gallery, and so much more.

Can’t wait? Buy it on Amazon.


  1. Wow, behave yourselves? that IS awful. my rocky horror show experience was going to see it performed last halloween. it’s a movie theater with the film on the screen, but actors are dressed up and move around, mouthing the words in front of it. it’s SO much fun. they even make you do the time warp in the aisles…so yeah, they want you to have some fun and NOT behave haha

  2. Costumes, dancing and throwing things are what RHPS is about. If you aren’t having that experience, you may as well stay home. I think my first time was in Tidewater, Virginia. I seem to remember lots of people screaming “Virgin”.

  3. Great giveaway! Several years ago, I went to see the RHPS on a quasi date with a friend. We wanted the full experience – freaks throwing toast at the screen and all. Sadly, there was no one there participating in the RHPS extras. What a let down. I haven’t seen the movie since and would love to see it again – espescially in glorius Blu-ray hi def!

  4. I have–luckily–seen RHPS in all its glory at midnight performances at the fabulous Oriental Landmark Theatre in Milwaukee. All I can say is, “Let’s Do the Time Warp Again!”

  5. I haven’t seen it in theaters, but I seen it many, many times on DVD. It is just as great, because I can dress up alone, and no one can judge me, and I can also sing along to the film alone, so that I wouldn’t have to be embarrassed. I’m also an extreme fan of the film, and I’m proud to say it.

  6. My first Rocky Experience was great, Loved the show, but nothing special happened. Even though I was a Rocky virgin, I never got pulled up onto the stage.

  7. I don’t have a Rocky Horror experience, but my daughter used to dress up and join in the fun! I’d love to win this for her.

  8. Sorry, I have none. By the time I “discovered” The Rocky Mountain Horror Picture Show I was a single mom with two babies and completely over-whelmed. I had never heard of this classic until then….yep, didn’t get out much. 🙂 Thank you.

  9. I’ve never seen it in a theater. I’m a tiny bit too young for the heyday, but my hubby remembers going with his sister to a theater in Santa Fe and being like, “What the heck?”

    We just watched it again on Netflix last week and laugh, laugh, laughed.

    Afterwards, I told him he could perhaps use the song There’s a Light at my memorial later in life, and he replied that I could use that last song — I’m going home.

    Howz that for creepy?

  10. In the 80s (I’m dating myself lol) ther was a theatre in downtown Victoria BC that would show the RHPS every weekend in October!

    I remember getting dolled up in the best garters and stockings I could find and joining other crazy folk like me.

    I have to say, it was one of the best times I’ve had! Dancing, throwoing popcorn etc., laughing……..loved it!

    This would be so much fun to own…..I’m not sure if the theatre is still showing RHPS these days, but I hope it does!

  11. This used to show at midnight on Fri nights at one theater in our area. I don’t think my friends and I ever brought anything, but other people threw all sorts of crazy stuff at the screen. And there were always the people who knew all the words. I remember one night a girl in front of claimed her purse had been stolen. We hadn’t noticed anything – so wrapped up in the movie. She stood at the door on the way out and accosted people as they left, but was very belligerant with, insisting we open our bags and prove we didn’t have her purse. I remember my friend turning to me, shocked saying “She thought WE took her purse!” I thought that was so naive – that she was shocked by this. Not really a memory of the movie, but my biggest memory of going there! Another memory – My now husband and I went there after my prom with some friends to see it.

  12. Oh my! I recall midnight showings at the theater, throwing the rice, singing along and dancing in the aisles. What a blast!

    Thanks for the memory and the opportunity!

  13. I have no Rocky Horror picture show memories…other than being teased for never seeing the movie.

  14. Love Rocky horror! I used to work really late nights at a B Video doing inventories and we used to play this full blast and sing all night.

  15. My Rocky Horror Experience…. me and a bunch of friends would go downtown after midnight and watch Rocky Horror Picture Show and have a blast yelling with the crowd at the screen. OMG… good times. I miss those days.

  16. I went to a live show directed by Worth Gardiner and decided to dress up as Frank N Furter except this was a real theater and no one was dressed up. I frantically tried to lose my make up and tone down my drag. Ouch!

  17. Sadly, I’ve never experienced the film in theatres, but I have seen the stage production twice. Went once on a lark, then later again in the same week because I loved it so much!

  18. in my teens i used to see it on the weekends in uniondale also went to the 8th st playhouse in manhattan to see it and also the broadway play the movir was better

  19. I’ve been fortunate enough to see it performed live in NYC (where we were encouraged to shout and throw stuff) and unfortunate enough to see it in a recently refurbed theater where they told people they could either leave the toast etc. at the door or go put it back in the car. Never dressed up, though.

  20. I had a string of 30 weeks in a row in the mid-80’s watching this every Saturday night at the UC Theater in Berkeley. The live cast there (Indecent Exposure) is the best I’ve ever seen.

    Having this in high-def still won’t make up for a huge rowdy audience to watch with…but it will make the at-home as good as you can get!

  21. My first experience was after prom. We went to a midnight showing in our prom clothes. Our prom was hold in a town square plaza high rise bank and across the square was a theater. Awesome experience!

  22. I was at the premiere of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” in London June 19, 1973 at The Theatre Upstairs, again in the US at The Roxy Theatre, Los Angeles opening March 21, 1974, .and then again at the film release at the UA Theatre in Westwood, Los Angeles, California on September 26, 1975…(God, I’m wierd and old!)

  23. I saw Rocky Horror Picture Show at the midnight showing in the movie theater when I was 16 and loved it.


  24. I was in my twenties and it was showing for quite a while at mid-night around the corner but had not seen it. When a couple of female friends were visiting they were shocked and took me. It was great. Since then I have seen it many times since…even the Glee episode. LOL

  25. I was dating my girlfriend at the time and we went to a midnight showing at the local mall. I was indoctrinated into the strange, obsessive cult that is the Rocky Horror crowd with a large paper mache’ object (which going into further detail would offend some people). There were fishnets, rice, lipstick and the usual cult shenanigans abound. The mall lost its movie theater eventually but I married my girlfriend and we have THE ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW in our DVD collection as a reminder of a misspent youth.
    Thanks for the chance!

  26. Oh I am SO all over this. Imagine a 16 year old dressed in torn fishnets, heroine-chic eyeliner, over-permed hair and 4″ tall platform boots, doing the timewarp and throwing toast at a movie screen. Yup, that would be me. 😉

  27. I haven’t seen it in years, we had a showing here at the local college and some friends that had seen it several times convinced me to go as Janet… I was really shocked to see how interactive the movie was, but it was fun to see how everyone really got into it, reciting the lines, throwing stuff, and some of the costumes and personalities that came along with the movie (and audience!) were very cool. I’d love to do the Timewarp again! lol

  28. I am the evil older sister who made her 10-year-old baby sis watch the movie after school with all my friends before my mom got home from work. Did a 5th grader know what a sweet transvestite from Transsexual, Transylvania was? Was she likely the only person in her class who knew all the words to “Touch-a, Touch-a…”? Poor girl grew up fast.

  29. In the late 80’s, my friends and I attended Tacky Horror in Berkeley. It’s where the roles are reversed & everyone plays in drag.

    Thanks for the giveaway >^..^<

  30. i remember a few years back i went to see rocky horror on lingerie night. someone kept saying my name, standing in front of me and it took me a good 10 seconds to realize it was my STRAIGHT guy friend, from high school… in fishnets and lingerie and red lipstick.

    Only at rocky horror. 😉

  31. One of my favorite movies. Saw the midnight shows about 25 times at the UA Cinema 6 (Marketplace) in Long Beach 😀

  32. Aside from watching the film countless times at midnight screenings (and dressing up as Brad on more than one occasion), I’ve also played in the orchestra for a few productions in my hometown, which was a blast. I love the spirit and unconventionality of “Rocky Horror” and would love to see it in HD – thanks for the chance to enter!

  33. My first experience in the theater was this past weekend in Cleveland, ohio Area. It was a blast. Thankfully I had friends with me, who helped me dress and what “props” to bring.

    Having the cleveland plain dealer was funny 😀

  34. I’ve only seen it on tv but I like it. I remember the first time I saw it, I was totally fascinated by it. I was in the store once when Time Warp came on. People all over the store were singing it. It was so cool.

  35. One time some of us dressed up as the Rocky Horror characters for Halloween. I went as Brad though because appaently I’m the most boring one of the group!

  36. I haven’t had a Rocky Horror Picture show experience yet, but I am going for sure this sunday. I already have my tix in hand. I hope I win this prize also to enhance the experience. =)

  37. One of my favorite things to do was to wake my young children up at night and drive to a theater showing the Rocky Horror Picture Midnight show. They would fall asleep again quickly and I would sing along with the movie.

  38. When I went to see RHPS at an “audience participation” Halloween screening on campus a few years back, let’s just say that experience was unforgettable

  39. Going week after week ( I needed a life ) during college. Throwing toast, squiirting water, throwing rice and dont’ eat the meatloaf!

  40. In college my friends and I took a newbie to see Rocky Horror. She got squirted with a water pistol at the beginning of the film and got mad and stormed out. We laughed our butts off and stayed for the rest of the movie.

  41. We were the first theatre to show Rocky Horror in Long Beach at Midnight at the UA movies 6 at the Marketplace. I was the theatre manager at the time. We had a show, people brought in rice, water, etc. It was a blast.
