The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the longest running theatrical release in cinematic history, playing in theaters regularly for nearly four decades. TRHPS encourages audience participation and so does Santa Fe Independent Film Festival so bring your props!
Props include... Bird seed: At the beginning of the film is the wedding of Ralph Hapschatt and Betty Munroe. As the newlyweds exit the church, you should throw the rice along with the on-screen wedding guests. Water pistols: These are used by members of the audience to simulate the rainstorm that Brad and Janet are caught in. (Now do you see why you should use the newspapers?) Newspapers: When Brad and Janet are caught in the storm, Janet covers her head with a newspaper. At this point, you should likewise cover your head. Flashlights: During the "There's a light" verse of "Over at the Frankenstein Place,"you should light up the night sky with flashlights. Rubber gloves: During and after the creation speech, Frank snaps his rubber gloves three times. Later, Magenta pulls these gloves off his hands. You should snap your gloves in sync each time to create a fantastic sound effect. Noisemakers: At the end of the creation speech, the Transylvanians respond with applause and noisemakers. You should do the same. Party hat: At the dinner table, when Frank puts on a party hat, you should do the same. Bell: During the song "Planet Schmanet Janet," ring the bell when Frank sings "Did you hear a bell ring? Cards: During the song "I'm Going Home," Frank sings "Cards for sorrow, cards for pain". At this point you should shower the theater with cards. Bring your props, boas and your friends for an incredible night of dancing to the time warp under the stars!
