It’s hard to believe but The Rocky Horror Picture Show is celebrating 40 years of entertaining audiences. Come watch a special live shadow cast at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Samala Showroom at 8 p.m. on Friday, October 26. The film’s lead actor, Barry Bostwick, will be there. And following the screening, Bostwick will dish on all his best behind-the-scenes stories during a live talkback and Q&A.
For the past four decades, The Rocky Horror Picture Show has grown to become a phenomenon that has sparked fans to dress up and shout lines in movie theaters across the world. This scene is predominant during the Halloween season. Audience members are known for dressing as the characters, and performing alongside the film, miming the actions on the screen above and behind them, while lip-synching their character’s lines. This method of shadow casting will be on display this Friday night.
Located on Highway 246 in Santa Ynez, the Chumash Casino Resort is an age 21-and-older venue. Tickets for all events are available at the Chumash Casino Resort’s Club Indulge or online at chumashcasino.com.
