Dir. Jim Sharman. 1975, 100 mins. DCP. With Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick. New technologies and interactive media are changing the role of the audience. But for the past four decades, The Rocky Horror Picture Show has transformed the passive screening experience into an active and participatory story about identity, sexuality, and self-awareness. In celebration of the film’s 40th anniversary, Future of StoryTelling presents a special showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show, featuring a live reenactment from the official New York City Shadow Cast, followed by a Q&A with the founders of the RHPS fan club that helped spark one of the original super fan communities. Attendees are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite character!
