Carson City celebrates the 40th anniversary of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” when the cult classic musical is screened Friday at the Brewery Arts Center.
Starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick, the 1975 R-rated film is part campy musical, part horror flick. The movie, a satirical tribute to science fiction and horror B movies of the 1930s through 1970s, is based on the musical stage production of the same name by Richard O’Brien.
Presented by the Brewery Arts Center and Proscenium Players, Inc., organizers of Friday’s event are encouraging audience members to arrive dressed as their favorite character. Attendees will be taught “The Time Warp” ahead of time so they can join in on the fun.
“People have been asking for us to do this for years. This is the way this movie was meant to be seen — in a theater full of people all dressed up, and sharing the experience together,” said Mike Wiencek, a member of Proscenium Players and Brewery Arts Center Board member.
The event kicks off at 8:30 p.m. in the Performance Hall, 511 W. King St., with costume contests and other activities. The movie starts at 10 p.m.
The costume contest offers prizes from Sassafras, Dutch Bros., Mom & Pops Diner, Naughty or Nice, Asian Nails, Starbucks and more.
Youth under 18 will not be admitted without an adult. Tickets are $10 or $15 at the door with discounts offered for PPI or BAC members. Tickets in advance are available at Breweryarts.org, or in the BAC’s Artisan Store, 449 W. King St.
