Oh, the horror

Rocky Horror Picture Show

"The Rocky Horror Picture Show," the cult classic from 1975 starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick, will return to the big screen this week.

On a rain-swept fall evening, on an empty stretch of road in Ohio, a blissfully engaged and somewhat naive couple find themselves stranded. As they seek shelter, the couple inadvertently unearth the cross-dressing Dr Frank-N-Furter's spooky lair of inexhaustible oddities, just in time to partake in the mad scientist's unveiling of his latest and most daring creation: Rocky Horror. 

Rapid City's Elks Theatre will show the movie at "9ish" on Oct. 19. Tickets are $7, or $6 if dressed in movie-themed attire. No outside props are allowed; theater-friendly prop bags will be available for $5.
