    What a great movie. I wonder where my DVD of it is. I haven’t watched Rocky Horror in a few years.
    I found a CD of the soundtrack last year and it lived in the Jeep for a few months

    That whole phenomena of the midnight shows with half the audience dressed for the parts and everybody singing along and doing call and response stuff seems kinda hard to explain in retrospect. But it sure was fun at the time:)

    I bet that was fun:cool::eek:

    It was happening all over the country, though. My girlfriend and I were doing it in Atlanta; at some theater in Buckhead the name of which I can’t recall. (I’m surprised I remember any of it:eek:)

    I hadn't thought about this in a long time. Back in the 80's I was the guitar player in the pit band for a live production of Rocky Horror in Atlanta. It ran for a couple of months, 6 shows per week one summer at a place called The Theatrical Outfit. I enjoyed playing the music, and the audience got very involved as you might imagine. A note of interest - the person playing Riff Raff in that production was a very young, unknown guy with a Mohawk about a foot tall. I remember him as a very "unusual" person with an unusual name - Ru Paul.

    I just realized I’ve never watched it. I’ve seen so many parts of it that I thought I had. My daughter ( the former goth) and her friends used to dress up and go watch it at midnight. I just figured it was good harmless fun for the kids. She’s 44 and has 3 kids now. I wonder if she lets them watch it. Susan Sarandon looks 16! I’ll have to try to find it on the cable.

    Back in 1996 they showed it at the largest cinema in town and I went with my then girlfriend, she as Riff Raff and I as Magenta - with newspapers, rice, the whole thing. It was great.
    A couple of years back we started playing with friends some covers at the New Year's Eve party of my present (and hopefully forever) missus. It's usually all good time party stuff, mainly 70s funk and some nice 80s and 90s songs, but the year we did "Sweet Transvestite", "Hot Patootie - Bless My Soul" and of course "Time Warp", people nearly went crazy - including some 20 year olds......
