The Movie: The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975)
What Is It?: Flop stage musical adaptation becomes the longest running cult movie in history when a bunch of dorks in garters start yelling and throwing shit at the screen. Tim Curry embodies sex better than Marilyn Monroe. Great songs, great attitude. If you haven’t experienced it in a theater with a bunch of dorks in garters who yell and throw shit at the screen, you’re inexperienced.
Why Today?: On this day in 1976, The Rocky Horror Picture Show has its Midnight coming out party at NYC’s Waverly Theater.
