This Halloween, BFI Southbank celebrates 35th anniversary of Shock Treatment,
This Halloween BFI Southbank will host the Science Fiction Double Feature Picture Show, the ultimate celebration of all things Rocky Horror. The event on Saturday 29 October will include ‘shadow cast’ screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show (Jim Sharman, 1975) starring Tim Curry,Susan Sarandon and original creator Richard O’Brien, and the often over-looked sequel Shock Treatment (Jim Sharman, 1981), starring O’Brien and Patricia Quinn alongside famous faces like Ruby Wax, Rik Mayall and Barry Humphries. The screenings mark the 35th anniversary of the release of Shock Treatment.
A unique experience for super-fans and the uninitiated alike, the ‘shadow cast’ will see an international cast of Rocky Horror performers from the UK, US and Europe take to the stage to perform numbers from both films live, while the films screen in the background. Following the screening of Shock Treatment cast and crew will reunite for a celebratory panel discussion to mark the anniversary. Audiences are then invited to join us in the Benugo Bar and Kitchen afterwards for the Time Warp Ball, complete with Transylvanian cocktails and spooky tunes.
Ticketholders to the Science Fiction Double Feature Picture Show are also invited to dive into the world of these cult classics with a plethora of convention activity in the hours leading up to the screenings. The BFI Denton Convention will offer opportunities to meet the cast of the films, get a Transylvanian makeover and discover the magic behind these musical masterpieces. Take your pick from a range of fascinating panel discussions, Q&A, autograph opportunities and screenings.
Cast and crew attending the events will be announced in due course. Tickets go on sale from 13 July 2016, see below for full details.
