    Every Friday night we used to go down to the Pillow Theater (later called the Dream Theater) on Cannery Row in Monterey CA to watch RHPS. It was a WACKY time.

    I just shared this same story here a few weeks ago, but when I was 17 in 1979 I went on a school trip to Washington DC and we went to see it. A girl in the audience was spraying water in the air (at what I assume was the appropriate time), and the guy in front of her told her to knock it off. She didn't, so he turned around and nailed her in the face with his Coke. The fight was loud but short.

    I've seen the Rocky Horror Show a couple of times, the audience were much weirder than the cast.

    I only went in full drag once. La Paloma Theater in Encinitas. Waiting outside in line, some stumbling drunk guy walking by fell in love with my hot legs. He must have walked past a dozen times, ogling. It's nice to be wanted, I guess.

    I almost saw it in a theatre once.

    The people that wanted us to go see it with them were WAY too into it. Anything that good can’t possibly be any good, can it?

    The old lady kinda party-pooped it, so we split. She was like, “Say thank you”. I’m like, “For what?” “I saved you” She said I would have hated it. I’ve seen snippets since. She was absolutely right. I probably would have dipped out for a smoke and stayed out. I’m not really the audience participation type.
    Some of my friends love it, tho.

    I've played with our state's orchestra as I read quickly. Rocky Horror is not many genres , not like Weber/ Lloyd musicals, which have many styles.
    My faovorurite is " Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat" a great array of styles, each song is distinctly different.

    I’ve seen it in a theater a couple of dozen times. I’ve had a VCR copy that wore out. I’ve got it on DVD. A great show

    The first time, we had third row center seats at a midnight show. It was about as ground zero as one could get for such an initiation. We were young. Fun.

    Way back in the day, I went to at least a dozen of the midnight showings of Rocky Horror at the Alabama Theater here in Houston. It was always an event, people dressed up, throwing stuff, repeating lines. Good times!

    A local cinema showed it once a year.
    Of course everybody went fully dressed up and equipped - I was a lovely Magenta, if I may bragg for a second. My then girlfriend was pretty annoyed, because her red high heels fitted me perfectly. Although I had to train walking in these things for half an hour....

    Worst movie ever made, IMO. Mrs. Roadie is a big fan, though. You can't be a fan of every last thing there is. You should go tell your bride about this thread & thank her again.

    Rocky Horror Picture Show ....... I always figured that someone decided to take New York's Time Square at that moment in time, put it in a box, wrap it up like a Christmas present and send it out to all the normal people across the rest of the country to see their reaction. Both my wife and children loved it. Then again .... I've never considered them completely normal. I'm husband and father. I went with them. I'm smart husband and father. During all discussions of this topic I would smile and nod. Now I realize Rocky Horror was just ahead of it's time. The company I've worked at for over 44 years now has a staff in human resources that appears to use Rocky Horror as a template for choosing the best candidates for open job positions. Rocky Horror. The birthplace of Diversity in the workplace. I'm not going anywhere. I've had a long lifetime of smiling and nodding.

    When I was in high school in the mid 80's a bunch of us would go see it at the midnight movies. There were always plenty of people in costume with all of the items to throw. The movie was terrible, but the audience participation made it fun. I always felt bad for the poor schlep who had to clean the theater afterwards.

    Midnight Movies! It’s been a while. But lots of fun. Felt a little sorry for the theatre employees afterward.
