Prosser’s Princess Theatre will host its sixth annual “Rocky Horror Picture Show” event on Halloween night, with two showings of the movie. Attendees are welcome to dress for the event and compete for prizes.
PROSSER Trick-or-treat adult-style is on the marquee at the Princess Theatre in Prosser again this Halloween. The theatre will host two showings of “Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Saturday, Oct. 31, at 8 p.m. and midnight.
The event includes a props bag and pre-show party, beginning at 7 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., in the theatre’s adjoining Green Room.
The sixth annual party includes music, treats, a trivia contest, a no-host bar with local wines and microbrews, and a “Time Warp Costume Contest” at 7:30 and 11:30 p.m.
“Rocky Horror Picture Show” is not a horror film; it is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films. People dress up in costumes, yell back lines at the movie and act out the film with a bag of props. First-time attendees are referred to as “virgins.”
Training and refresher sessions for the interactive portions of the film will begin at 7:45 p.m. and 11:45 p.m. on the evening of the show.
Due to theater policy, attendees will not be permitted to bring their own props into the theater.
The Princess Theatre is presenting “Rocky Horror Picture Show” with the permission of 20th Century Fox. The movie is rated R. Those under 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
