NORWALK, Conn. -- "The 'Rocky Horror' Experience" is coming to Norwalk on Saturday.
The Maritime Aquarium in Norwalk is hosting a showing of "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" in its IMAX theater at 9 p.m. Saturday, according to a press release. In addition to the film, a live cast is set to act out the story on the stage in the theater during the showing, according to the release.
“But we certainly don’t expect the audience to just sit on their hands and watch,” said Chris Loynd, the Aquarium’s marketing director, in the release. “We encourage everyone to dress up as their favorite ‘Rocky Horror’ character and participate in the show.”
Participants also can bring movie-related items such as "rubber gloves, newspapers, umbrellas, flashlights and party horns," according to the release. The Aquarium will also offer "prop bags” for purchase at the door, according to the release. While the evening event is set for the Aquarium’s IMAX Theater, the movie will not be shown in the giant-screen IMAX format, according to the release.
Tickets for “The ‘Rocky Horror’ Experience” are $18 and $16 for Aquarium members. Advance ticket purchases are available online at the Maritime Aquarium's website or by calling (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
