WAYNE (WWJ) – “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” is back on the big screen in metro Detroit, and for the first time in Michigan it’s playing in all digital picture and sound.
The 1975 movie – where audience members are encouraged to dress up like their favorite characters, dance, sing and throw items around the room, is playing at the historic State Wayne Phoenix Theatre on Michigan Avenue.
The 1975 British-American interactive musical spoof of science fiction and horror B movies of the late 1940s to early 1970’s, stars Susan Sarandon and Tim Curry.
Cory Jacobson is the president of Phoenix Theaters:
“The new digital sound systems that are in the center are also taking this movie that was recorded as a mono sound track, and I don’t know what the studio did to it, but it’s very dynamic right now and I was very surprised at how good it sounded.”
“The last time I had been to the Rocky Horrow Picture Show was in the summer of 1980,” said Jacobson.”And I remembered how the audience … had been coming to this week after week after week and they know all the cues in the film and how to get up and dance in the aisles and when to throw the rice.”
“The Rocky Horror Picture Show” will run on the SECOND Saturday of every month – get the movie show times HERE.
