Frank-N-Furter and his crew of transexual Transylvanians will be on the big screen at Richmond Regent on Friday, July 28.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show is without doubt one of the most loved cult classics in modern cinema history.

So popular among fans was the 1975 feature that for nearly 20 years (from the late 80s) it held a regular weekly late night screening slot in a George Street, Sydney, cinema.

For those who’ve managed to avoid the classic here’s a brief run-down on what to expect.

Young couple Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) find themselves stranded in a storm with a flat tyre.

In an attempt to get help they stop in at a spooky mansion to call for help.

It turns out to be the home of transvestite scientist Dr Frank-N-Further (Tim Curry), who among other things, is looking to make himself the ideal man – Rocky.

Brad and Janet find themselves lost - albeit reluctantly – to “absolute pleasure”. Along the way they meet Frank’s first creation (Meat Loaf) and creepy butler Riff Raff (played by the film’s writer Richard O’Brien).

It’s a rollicking, singalong 100-odd (very odd) minutes that will definitely put a smile on the face.

The Richmond screening will be preceded by a special performance by students from Richmond High School.

There will be lucky door prizes on the night.

Tickets cost just $14 per person and will be available from the Richmond Regent box office from Saturday, June 24.

Guests are urged to dress up, sing loud and get there for the fun by 8.30pm.
