ROCKY HORROR 45 (documentary)

Sun Nov 1, 20:30 - Sun Nov 1, 22:30
Labia Theatre




Special S.A. HorrorFest Cinema Screening

African Premiere

No Under 18s

It's hard to believe this cultural phenomenon has been with us for 45 years!

Now a part of pop-culture, at the time of its production it was considered taboo.

Underground filmmaker Manny Velazquez dives into the immortal history and legacy of The Rocky Horror Picture Show and its lesser known sequel Shock Treatment with a collection of interviews, convention footage and more.

While we'd love to get everyone into the cinema to do the Timewarp, the pandemic circumstances have stalled such revelry. So, this year we can all sit back and watch this documentary on this classic musical legend.

Directed by Manny Velazquez

Starring Tim Curry, Richard O'Brien, Susan Sarandon

Rare single cinema screening!
