Rocky Horror Picture Show @ Royal Albert Hall The Rocky Horror Picture Show screening at the Royal Albert Hall took place on Thursday 13th November, 2014 at 7:30pm

Tickets were £14.74-£28 and the hall was looking pretty full by the time the movie rolled. It was also great to see so many people dressing up for the event in what was a weekday screening. I'd manged to buy front row tickets in the arena area for myself, Steph and the boys, and sitting there in front of the second biggest screen I had watched the movie on in one of the best venues ever felt incredible.

Patricia QuinnIn addition to the movie being screened in one of London's most iconic buildings we also had the wonderful Patricia Quinn introducing the screening. Patricia also mentioned that original The Rocky Horror Show and The Rocky Horror Picture Show producer Michael White was in the audience that night. When the movie credits rolled, both Patricia and Michael got a huge round of applause when their names appeared on screen.

A few days before the event itself, the website for the hall updated their listing with a subtle note to say that "although they realise that The Rocky Horror Picture Show has a tradition of audience participation, they requested that the grade one listing status of the building was respected". Of couse it was, there was plenty of call-outs to the movie, but nothing got thrown around. For most of us fans, just being there was an incredible enough experience, although I did enjoy getting to shout out the usual response to "From what had gone before, Brad and Janet had both tasted..................."!

And of course it was.............B: The Proms

The winners were...........Angela Baldock and Lucinda Laffey. Well done to you both and we hope you enjoyed the night as much as we did.

The original official press release for the screening................

For the first time since its release almost 40 years ago, the Rocky Horror Picture Show is to be given a special screening at the Royal Albert Hall next month.

The 1975 cult classic is coming to the famous venue for one night only, on Thursday 13 November, for its legion of fans to enjoy a special screening in one of the world's most iconic buildings.

Jasper Hope, Chief Operating Officer at the Royal Albert Hall, said: "Audience participation is always part of the deal when the Rocky Horror Picture Show is screened and it's our absolute pleasure to be able to present this cult classic in the majestic setting of the Royal Albert Hall for thousands to enjoy."

Nearly 40 years on from its release, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is firmly established as both a critical and popular favourite.

Empire's Adam Smith called it "simply a cult classic. See it once and laugh about it at dinner parties for the rest of your adult life. Or go along to the interactive viewings, dress up, and sing along. It's your call."

TV Guide said: "The film itself is a lot of fun -- but the audience-participation phenomenon has turned it into a one-of-a-kind cinematic experience", while Andy Tweddle of Little White Lies recently wrote: "Everybody absolutely loves it … this gaudy pastiche of B-movie science fiction and horror is a musical like no other and its iconic status is totally deserved."

The screening is a co-promotion between the Royal Albert Hall and Apollo Digital.
