It’s that time of the year when we once again celebrate the Rocky Horror Picture Show which premiered in London on August 14th 1975. The ‘Picture Show’ was (and still is) the movie version of the off-beat Rocky Horror Show originally performed in a disused cinema off the Kings Road in Chelsea, London. The Picture Show’s primary shooting location – Oakley Court, situated close to the then Bray Studios (home of the Hammer Horror films)- is still a mecca for Horror Show fans, even though it has now been converted into a swanky hotel offering a whole different kind of hospitality. Meanwhile, whilst the Picture Show is easily available to enjoy at home on DVD, Blu-Ray and any other media, the live 3D version continues to evolve and tour the country, gathering new virgins (those who haven’t experienced the Show) as it does so.
Here at Props n Frocks we have long experience with the Show and its unique attributes and we’ve even written a Rocky Horror information page which gives you lots of help and Rocky Horror costume ideas.
