Sing along to Richard O'Brien's 1975 classic - The Rocky Horror Picture ShowWhat’s your favourite movie musical? Whatever it is, I bet you’ve seen it loads, know all the songs and can probably recite most of the script too. Now, imagine if you could do this while watching said movie on the big screen, in a cinema full of like-minded (and similarly well-versed) souls, where no one’s going to complain about your rubbish singing.

Plus, it doesn’t hurt that Tim Curry is astoundingly great, and the songs are catchy as hell.

Science fiction, double feature. Get into the Rocky Horror spirit for HalloweenThose of you who are unfamiliar with the film need not worry. The night kicks off with a lesson in how to do the Time Warp and various other vital Rocky routines. You are given a goody bag of props and, perhaps best of all, the song lyrics come up as onscreen subtitles so you won’t miss a beat.

Most people get dressed up, often as their favourite Rocky character, and there’s a lighthearted competition for best costume. In fact, now I’ve written this, I’m very tempted to do the time warp again! It’s just a jump to the left…
