Rossland Skatepark Association screens Rocky Horror

The Rossland Skatepark Association will host a Rocky Horror Picture Show event on Friday, Oct. 30 at the Miners' Hall.

For the second year in a row the Rossland Skatepark Association will show Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Miners’ Hall.

The screening will take place on Friday, Oct. 30 and all proceeds will go toward the skatepark.

“The main idea of the show is to of course play the movie, which is quite an interesting interactive event,” said Robin Strachan, a member of the board of directors for the Skatepark Association.

Watching the Rocky Horror Picture Show in theatres isn’t like other movies.

To begin with, Rocky Horror audiences are expected to dress up like their favourite characters from the film, and on Friday there will be a chance to win prizes for best costume.

“Should be great fun. We had some awesome costumes last year,” said Strachan.

There’s also a litany of commentary and abuse that audiences members yell at the screen and a number of props to be thrown around the theatre.

List of the usual props:

However for this event Strachan requests that audience members leave rice, confetti and water pistols at home.

“For our interest in not having to clean up rice that’s all over the floor, we’ve asked for no rice at the event,” said Strachan. “And because the RCAC has so graciously lent us their equipment to show the movie on, there’s quite a bit of concern about any water getting on the screen.”

And of course you have to dance “The Time Warp,” a good warmup for the dance following the movie.

DJ RSK will preside over the beats, and there will be plenty of libations for all, with beer provided by Rossland Brewing Company.

Tickets are $15 and available at the Alpine Grind, Ross Vegas, at the door, and online through the Rossland Skatepark Association’s Facebook page.

The association hopes to break ground on the skatepark in Spring 2016.
