Rocky Horror Picture Show 2005

  • 21st Oct, 2005 at 2:49 PM

It looks like this year, I'm organising the NITI delegation to the Rocky Horror Picture Show. It's a movie and a show, and is playing at Théatre Corona. Other people are welcome to come, and I understand that a group from Canonical will be joining us.

For those who are unfamiliar with the RHPS, it's not for the prudish. So you might not enjoy this if you are easily upset by innuendo. Or by getting rained upon. You will enjoy this if you enjoy costumes, dancing, and silliness.

Jim will be our special guest that night, flying in from Mountain View, CA. I don't know why he's doing this, but he says he figures that Halloween is a good time to be in this city. (Seeing as San Francisco is so close to Mountain View, I'm not sure what this implies.)

We will be going to the Monday, 31 October 2005 show at 21:00. Yes, yes, I know, it's not midnight. For some strange reason, there is no midnight show on Halloween. I plan to show up, in queue, at around 20:15. Then we get to stand for about an hour with people dressed up in various shocking and amusing outfits. Some of them may give us candy, some of them may demand it.

Tickets cost about $20 at the door, so you may wish to pick them up sooner for cheaper. Cheap Thrills, on Metcalfe, is still selling them.

The Clinton Street Theater here in Portland has been running RHPS for like 30 years. I remember rainy soggy NorthWest nights with all these wet steaming bodies waiting in line jibing each other... at the mists and the flung toast to come.

Silly Jim. Halloween on Castro is just like RHPS. O:-)

Sounds like you're going to have a blast. I'd be tempted to price a quick hop myself, but Geoff and I are leaving for PA later that week to go visit some of my friends and relatives. I look forward to reading your trip report and viewing your usually awesome photos.
