Rocky Horror Picture Show MOVIE showings for October 2012

Here’s what we’ve all been waiting for, the list of Michigan shows for the 2012 Halloween season! (And there was much rejoicing…yay!) We plan on going to as many as we possibly can – and will be in full costume at all shows. Don’t forget to dress up – if not as one of the main characters or Transylvanians, just wear something sexy. If you happen to be at one of the shows we are at, make sure you come say Hello. And don’t be shy about asking us to pose for photos for/with you – we love it! We would especially love it if you shared your photos with us as well. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink!

    I was told that they would be selling prop bags at Celebration, though this could have changed. The “cult movies” series they’ve been having have all had the movies screening at 10:30 so far, and only on the weekends, I think. At least in Portage. Also, there might be a “private screening” (so, not listed on their site) at Portage with a cast, October 20th is the date. I was told a cast wouldn’t be allowed at general public screenings.

  • ALINA says:

    when will there be more showings for the rocky horror picture show,ive missed them all. ive just moved back to michigan and would love to catch a show

  • Rob says:

    Currently, there are no regularly scheduled RHPS performances in Michigan. The closest regular shows are in Ohio, the Chicago area, and some less frequent in Indiana.

    Keep checking back here as we will post any new Michigan show as soon as we are notified of it’s existence.
