I went to a midnight showing once - but I loved the entire experience
“Do not let your fire go out spark by irreplaceable spark... Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real…. It is possible…. It’s yours. “
Ayn Rand (Atlas Shrugged)
I went twice a very long time ago. I did not dress up but it was a lot of fun.
As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together. - Isaac Bashevis Singer
I went to a midnight showing at one of the few remaining old theaters here in town and it was great! They had people in costumes come up on stage for a costume show before the movie and everything!
I never went to a midnight showing but I do love the movie.
August 8, 1974
On this day in the Horror Movie Timeline, Brad Majors and Janet Weiss are stranded after their car breaks down, finding themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter.... the rest is history.
“Give yourself over to absolute pleasure. Swim the warm waters of sins of the flesh - erotic nightmares beyond any measure, and sensual daydreams to treasure forever. Can't you just see it? Don't dream it, be it.” -Frank, Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
Rocky Horror Picture Show fans... PREPARE TO BE MIND BLOWN...
As I was researching for the "On this day in Horror History" post that I frequent on Horror Central.. I Stumbled upon perhaps the most peculiar and obscure coincidence that I believe has NEVER seen the light of day.
The events that transpire in Rocky Horror Picture Show take place on August 8, 1975... In the film Dr. Frank-N-Furter sings...
"Whatever happened to Fay Wray / That delicate satin-draped frame / As it clung to her thigh / How I started to cry / 'Cause I wanted to be dressed just the same."
Fay Wray, the actress who was famed for her role in King Kong (1933)... Passed away August 8, 2004... Nearly 30 years to the day after the film's events occurred in the fictional timeline and the cult classic was released worldwide.
Have you ever enjoyed a midnight Rocky Horror show? did you participate/dress up?
I did one time, not knowing what to expect. I participated as I could. :)
