ASTC presents screening of 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show'

The American Southwest Theatre Company presents a special one night only screening of the cult-classic film, "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" and live entertainment at 8 p.m. Friday, April 9, at the Hershel Zohn Theater on the NMSU campus.


A cult classic, the film follows one fateful evening in the lives of a clean-cut, newly engaged couple as their car breaks down outside of transvestite Dr. Franke-N-Furter's castle. A movie musical, the film includes classic songs such as "Sweet Transvestite" and "The Time Warp."

Admission is $5 and movie-goers are encouraged to dress in costume for a costume contest held before the screening. Special "Rocky Horror" prop bags will be available for sale at the theater. Door prizes also will be given away.

Doors will open for ticket sales at 7 p.m. Music on the front patio will be provided by Ninth Trybe/SLi Productions with disc jockeys Young Cush, Domdada, and Trouble at 8 p.m. The contest and film will begin at 9 p.m. Call (575) 646-4515 or (800) 646-ASTC for more information.
