Brisbane Rocky Horror: Movie and live floorshow at the Globe Theatre, Fri Jan 15

The cult musical movie The Rocky Horror Picture Show is coming to the Globe Theatre, at 220 Brunswick St, Fortitude Valley, on Friday January 15th at 7pm - click here for a Google Map.

The screening includes a live floorshow by the Cards 4 Sorrow troupe: here's some examples of their work at previous Rocky Horror shows at the Globe:

A big part of the fun at Rocky Horror screenings is the audience participation - a whole family of different audience responses to yell at the screen when certain things get said have grown up. If you visit this page you'll find a link to a script showing some of the things the audience yells (although every place has its own traditions). There's also more information here. And if you know all this and want more, you might be interested in this link, where you can download songs recorded of the original 1975 Broadway production.

It's a good idea to book tickets - if you turn up at the door there's a good chance all tickets will have sold out. You can book tickets here - they're $17.50 unreserved or $30 for reserved seats. This is definitely an 18+ event only. If you like using Facebook to keep track of what you're going to, there's a Facebook event here.

If you're getting to the Globe Theatre by public transport, you can catch a train to Fortitude Valley station, walk out from the station onto Brunswick St, turn right and the theatre is literally about 100 metres away. Or you can catch a 370, 375 or 379 bus from the bus stop on Adelaide St in the city near the corner of Ann St, and get off at stop 211 on Brunswick St. You have to cross Brunswick St and then keep walking the same way the bus was going - you'll be at the Globe Theatre after only 200m or so. All these stops are shown on the Google Map, and you can use Translink's journey planner to find bus and train timetables.
