TIME WARP AGAIN ...
And finally, a different kind of dress-up event — the midnight showing of The Rocky Horror Picture Show at The Nuart — ended up this week’s pranciest pit stop. The überinteractive screenings, complete with live stage cast Sins o’ the Flesh performing onstage, have been going on for over 20 years now, but last Saturday, they had some exciting extras, including a special “Monsters of Rocky” show, which injected famed musicians and classic anthems into Rocky Horror lore, and “Rocky the Vote,” a registration drive (encouraging “No on Proposition 8” ). If you’ve never been part of this wild and wonderful talk-back-to-the-screen scene, you must go check it out, preferably this Saturday, October 18, the last night of the voter sign-up. But prepare to have a “V” — for virgin — lipsticked on your face (like model Adrienne Curry the night we were there). Even if you have been to the weekly gathering, it’s worth a revisit (again and again) just to keep track of all the snappy new comebacks and ever-expanding lingo and props that regulars these days seem to have come up with. In fact, the vibe at the Nuart is so fun and friendly, we recommend the Friday-night Cine-Insomnia screenings too. A new 35 mm print of Nightmare on Elm Street shows this Friday, October 17; Cheech & Chong’s Up In Smoke is on October 24; and the creepy silent film The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (with live musical accompaniment) happens Halloween night, October 31. See the Rocky raucousness in our online slide show.
