That's okay. I'm with ya! I remember seeing the Rocky on screen simultaneously with live performers and audience participation almost 25 years ago in New York! Of course I was 16 then...

Yikes, getting old I guess...

Same here, only in the sticks of Jersey. 16 as well... Guess I need to go put the record on now. :)

Oh, and I never would have thought that I would live on Transylvania Road, but I do. Really and truly.

njnative 02-25-2013 07:33 AM

Okay, so what did everyone bring to the theater for this show? Here's what I remember:
Rice - for the wedding
Squirt guns - for the rain
Newspaper - to protect you from the rain
Lighter - for the light in the window (later banned by the theater because newspaper was being set on fire)
Cards - for sorrow, cards for pain
Noisemakers - for the creation scene
Toast - for the dinner toast
Bell - Did you hear a bell ring?

Interesting cultural difference I noted in the 80s. I first saw this show in Jersey, where everyone would shout "nice tits!" when Janet appeared. A few years later I moved to Utah where everyone shouted "slut!". Except of course for that one odd person in the back shouting "nice tits".

From an amazon review,
Quote:

1. For unknown reasons Science Fiction is LETTERBOXED ( within the 1.66 frame which the Fox logo and the rest of the film is in), cutting off the top and bottom of the lips during parts of the song. The entire film was 1.66 on the dvd so this blunder on the Blu-ray is unforgivable.
2. The blue tint from Brad's bedroom scene has been removed. The blue tint from the Timewarp flashback has also been removed.
Just an FYI.

Good times. I just introduced my 19 year old son to the show about six months ago, and we are introducing his girlfriend (Rocky Horror Virgin) to the show next Saturday.

Imagine my surprise years later when I found out that the production I had seen in the Village in like 1988 had the RHPS fan Club president Sal Piro there. I was a Rock "virgin" and didn't know anything about it. Was a bored Runaway wanting to sample more big city "culture"..

Great music. The movie doesn't hold up so well now that I am a serious Christian but it was fun and it sure WAS an experience!

alcrosby 02-25-2013 01:37 PM

Cool. How often do you get a chance to (legally) buy a Blu-Ray of a movie that's still officially out in theaters?

This film is still officially in General Release -- has been since 1975! (see wikipedia...)

First time I saw it was at the Greek Theatre at the University of Arkansas... 1983, I believe. Great fun.

I too have a 19 year old who LOVES the flick - in fact RHPS was the ONLY actual DVD he took with him to college this past fall. He is hoping to do the full stage presentation to all the virgins at his school.

Makes me feel good that I raised him right!!

I remember when it first came out on VHS that it cost $100 and it took years until the price finally went down.

kodakman 02-26-2013 02:42 AM

Last time I saw this movie in a theatre, someone threw a bucket of water at me.

Should have had a newspaper

slickgrapes 02-28-2013 02:53 PM

Tried watching this about 10 years ago and it was just....stupid. I really wanted to like it, just b/c so many people recommended it, but it was like a bad SNL skit that never ended. Maybe I should give it another try?

It's a cult movie, and most of these are bad. People (myself included) like this movie because of the music and the live shows they used to go to. If you didn't like it then, you won't like it now. It doesn't get better with the years :)

rkanyok 02-28-2013 02:58 PM

Good deal, but am I the only one who thinks seeing this movie once is really all anyone needs to see it?

Used to fill the squirt gun with hand lotion for shows in the Village. Oh what fun! :D

Judgmental much? It's a joke pal, though I AM a Lovecraft fan. Cthulhu is NOT an actual God of any sort he sprang from the mind of ONE man.

People judging and hating Christians NEVER stops...

duenor 02-28-2013 04:19 PM

this (and the jon waters movies) are like litmus tests to see if you have latent gayness. hey, to each his own.

It's an old low budget movie. You tell me.

It was fun watching in the theatre, but I can't imagine sitting through it at home.

I personally achieved the status of post-vert in the theater.

I saw this movie while in college at a local movie theater in the late '80's. Out of the darkness a very fast moving, slightly wet roll of toilet paper hit me right on the bridge of my prescription Alfa Romeo "Serpico" style glasses. It hurt my nose really bad. Much more than a spoon ever could. :(

To those who dare to see this movie in a public forum, I suggest you watch the movie with a football helmet on your head. I for one am very glad that this movie has been released on DVD so I can watch it in a projectile free environment. :eek:

scooch 02-28-2013 08:21 PM

when I saw it we sat in the back. All I remember was someone shouting out "the guys in the first 5 rows are assholes!" and then peppered them with bird seed.

In Utah you say? I don't know if that is representative of the rest of the countty. That whole state is a cultural difference. Well, most of it. ;)

Davidhh 03-03-2013 05:26 PM

I think that the movie has lost a lot of context over the years. It started off as an award-winning play in London. It was a parody of the hokey B-movie horror and sci-fi movies of the 50's. There are all sorts of references, like Magenta's Bride of Frankenstein hair at the end.

In the 70's and 80's especially, Rocky was more of an event for a lot of kids who felt outside of the mainstream. I know that back in the late 80's, Rocky was the first place I went with a mixed crowd (i.e. not a gay bar) that I felt being comfortable being openly gay. it was also the first chance for a lot of kids to publicly say lots of dirty things and yell them out at the top of our lungs. (It was a different time then.)

But if you've never seen the show in a theater with a crowd yelling out lines and a group of volunteers acting it out in front of the screen, than you haven't really had the full experience. The hysterical creative lines that people came up with were a huge part of the experience. Learning when to say what was part of being in with the crowd. And coming up with lines that ended up becoming ones that everyone yelled helped keep the crowd involved.

I was in the cast, playing Brad and the Narrator in Cambridge, MA. It's the oily time I've ever really acted in any way publicly. But those were really fun times.

Unfortunately, most theaters don't allow throwing things any more, because people ruined it. One person here jokes about putting hand lotion in his squirt gun. But some people got lazy and used cleaners from the store, instead of water. Imagine getting squirted in the face with ammonia, while you're trying to perform! And the thrown food (you're a HOT DOG, but you'd better not try to hurt her, FRANK FURTER) became a problem because they attracted roaches and rats. Some theaters had damage done to their screens from things being thrown at them too hard.

Still, if you can see it live, I'd strongly recommend it. And the Blu-Ray should bring back a lot of memories.

Does anyone know if there is an alternate soundtrack of the audience participation version? If so, that's a good way to somewhat relive the live experience, even if the jokes are 20+ years old.
