Back in the 1980’s when I was first introduced to The Rocky Horror Picture Show there were several theaters in the Los Angeles area that were still showing The Rocky Horror Pictures Show as a midnight movie. Sadly that number has drastically declined over the years and there is only one theater in Los Angeles where fans and virgins ( Rocky Horror first timers) alike can still watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show in all of its glory and debauchery. That theater is the Nuart Theater which is located in West Los Angles. For more information on The Rocky Horror Show at the Nuart keep reading.

What Can I Expect At The Rocky Horror Picture Show?
If this is your first time attending Rocky Horror expecte to be singled out by having a big V for virgin ( someone who is seeing Rocky Horror for the first time) on your forehead. You may be included in the pre show activities and have to do something like demonstrate your best fake orgasm or run through the spanking machine as part of your initiation. Don’t worry though, its all harmless fun and no one is ever forced to do something they don’t want to do. Once the show starts be prepared for the audience to yell things at the movie, throw things in the air and jump into the aisle to do the Time Warp. If you’re expecting a quiet movie experience you’ve definitely picked the wrong movie as the mayhem and madness continues throughout the entire movie.
