If you need to generate some boxffice Book Rocky Horror for weekend late shows. Find a local cast and they will be happy to perform at the showings and help you promote it.
We just took over a sub run twin house with $1.50 admission and are looking forward to our 4th weekend of Rocky at midnite at a $5.00 ticket price.

Yessss, Yesss, Yesss. I have seen the effects of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in the big city theatres. But my concern would be if it would go over that well in a small town. Regaudless, it is something ot think about. It seems that anywhere there are cult followers it would be big. Thanks for the idea!

I've always heard the theatre gets trashed. What do you do to control it? What happens?

Good comments, Mike and that is why you need to have a cast present. They will police the crowd and CLEAN UP THE AUDITORIUM!!!
Our cast members even hand out little programs to the customers and flyers to promote the show around town.

I certainly have been to a lot of showings of Rocky Horror at a lot of different theaters through out New England, I have been involved with a few "casts" as well, and I can confirm their popularity. Reguardless of the area, with good publicity a showing could be very lucrative for a theater. And certainly with a cast to prompt and police the audience a certain level of security can be maintained. I also have aided in cleaning up after such performances, now there is rice and toast and water involved but with a prior agreement most performers are more than happy to assist in clean up. Avid Rocky Horror fans are pleased just to be involved in a preformance. I am all for showings of Rocky Horror, and feel that with careful planning all mishaps and inconviences can be avoided.

Has anyone here played this? Did you use a "local cast?" I would like to play this for my 10-year anniversary coming up on Halloween, but I don't want any water or other nasty debris being thrown around my theatre. Is it even possible to avoid that with this picture?

Hi, Donna;

I book Rocky Horror in an 800 seat movie palace every couple of months, and have for years. The cast helps keep order, and the theatre staff make sure everything goes smoothly, and that the patrons follow the rules. The theatre is still standing and no worse the wear, even when we sell out all 800 seats.

If you're interested, I can put you in touch with the manager to pick his brain.

The bad news is that at this late date, chances of getting a print for next month are probably very slim. However, if you have video projection, you can book it on DVD from Criterion.

Just e-mail me directly if there's anything I can do to assist.

LT

We did very well with "Rocky", though it was several years ago... before cable/DVD.

The cast was as described in earlier posts... plenty stayed to help clean up. Actually, all I had to do was provide brooms, vacuums, trash bags and some Coke and Sprite. By the time they were done, the place was always spotless. I did allow the rice, and at the end of each performance there was enough in there to start a small oriental restaurant. Every bit was gone after cleanup.

We did make a short speech regarding the screen and things being tossed around the auditorium, warning that any problem would be the last day we'd do this. With the cast in front to keep an eye on things, everything always went fine.

We play weekly every Saturday at midnight in metro Atlanta. Charge regular admission ($7.50 adult/$5.50 child/senior), and have between 20 and 60 people every week. We also have a cast. Cleanup is handled by the janitorial company.
