Rocky Horror Picture Show (film)

One of these people might be me!
The successful Fun Film Party evenings are returning to the Royal Hippodrome on Seaside and the next film is to be Richard O'Brien's science fiction classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Rocky Horror was originally a stage show that premiered in 1973 and the film version followed two years later in 1975. Writer Richard O'Brien plays the part of Riff Raff, the handyman and many scenes are brilliantly stolen by Tim Curry as the mad scientist Dr Frank N Furter. Other stars include Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick and Patricia Quinn. Keep your eyes open for cameo performances from Meatloaf and Christopher Biggins as well.

The film has become a great cult classic to which audiences go dressed up as their favourite characters, sing along to the songs, and shout out their own cues and lines, most of which I probably shouldn't type on this blog post! (and while we're on that subject, the Hippodrome says this screening is not suitable for under 15s.) In order to encourage you to get a gang to go dressed up together, group discounts are being offered - buy nine tickets and get the tenth free. "Let's do the Time Warp again"!

Royal Hippodrome, Sat 30th Nov, 19:30.
Tickets £12, £10 concessions, available online, by calling 01323 412000, or in person from Eastbourne Theatre Box Office and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
