The Rocky Horror Picture Show – Open Air Cinema
Dir: Jim Sharman (1975, 1 hr 40 mins)
On a wild and rain-swept late-November evening, somewhere at an empty stretch of road outside Ohio’s merry Denton, blissfully-affianced, prudish, boringly-innocent young pair Brad Majors and Janet Weiss find themselves stranded on their way to visit an ex-tutor. Instead, the couple will inadvertently unearth the cross-dressing Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s spooky lair of inexhaustible oddities, just in time to partake in the out-of-this-world mad scientist’s proud unveiling of his latest, delightfully extravagant, most daring creation: the ultimate male and the perfect sex symbol: the flaxen-haired Rocky Horror!
This is the third screening on the calendar for the yearly film events that turns Dudley Castle into an open air cinema for your delight and enjoyment. There will be hot food and a licensed bar, but you’re welcome to bring your own picnics too! Don’t forget to bring along a chair and/or a blanket.
