Original Rocky Horror movie to be screened in UK cinemas to celebrate 40th anniversary

In celebration of The Rocky Horror Picture Show’s 40th anniversary, the original movie is being screened in UK cinemas on Wednesday 25th November at 7.30pm

The screening of the iconic film will be preceded by a live audience Q&A with the show’s stars Patricia Quinn and Nell Campbell with video link to Tim Curry which was filmed live at the Royal Albert Hall last month.

Curry, who played Dr Frank-N-Furter, said: "40 years we have been running, and it’s all your fault. Your energy and enthusiasm has kept this movie alive for 40 - count them - years.”

Quinn, who played Magenta, said: "It’s extraordinary how this film has evolved. 40 years on, and it’s the longest running film in cinema history. And the reason for that? It’s because we never left the cinemas."

The film is adapted from Richard O'Brien's stage musical which is launching a new UK tour in December.
