‘Rocky Horror Picture Show’
7:30 and 10:30 p.m. Friday. Portland House of Music, 25 Temple St., Portland, $10 in advance, $15 day of show, 21-plus. portlandhouseofmusic.com
It’s just a jump to the left into Portland House of Music for either the early or late screening of the mother of all cult classic films, 1975’s “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” Have some meatloaf for dinner and then choose either the 7:30 or 10:30 p.m. showing presented by local groups The Consensual Daydreamers and the Maine Educationalists on Sexual Harmony. Costumes are encouraged, and prop bags will be available for purchase. They do ask that you keep your rice, toast and water pistols at home, but newspapers, flashlights, rubber gloves, noisemakers, toilet paper, playing cards, party hats and bells are all fair game. Good luck, Brad and Janet!
