The Rocky Horror Picture Show 

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 11:55 p.m. Continues through Oct. 28 2017
Price: $10
Just like Christmas trees in December and Uncle Sam/Betsy Ross erotic cosplay in July, you can't celebrate Halloween without indulging in The Rocky Horror Picture Show sometime in October. The film moved past "cult classic" status once it entered the Library of Congress' National Film Registry in 2006, making it officially a bona fide classic. Richard O'Brien's immortal love story tells the tale of decent American couple Brad and Janet (a couple of squares) who break down on the road and seek help at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter on the same night he's about to bring his greatest, most virile creation to life. There's very little horror (unless you're terrified by alternative lifestyles), but a whole lot of singing about what's hot and being brave enough to live out your dreams. The Rocky Horror Picture Show is shown at 11:55 p.m. Friday and Saturday (October 20 to 28) at the Landmark Tivoli Theatre (6350 Delmar Boulevard, University City; as part of the Reel Late series. The Samurai Electricians returns to perform the essential role of "shadow cast," which recreates the movie while it screens. Tickets are $10.
