"I'm just a sweet transvestite, from Transsexual Transylvania." 

If you don't know what that quote is from than you have never seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show and if you haven't then what are you waiting for????  The Gateway movie theater located at 1820 E Sunrise Blvd, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33004 has bi-weekly showings and your next opportunity to see it is this Saturday 10/17/2015.

"Rocky Horror is the first and only true audience partici-(SAY IT!)-pation movie. People yell back lines at the screen during the extended pauses between dialogue, dress up in costume and act out the film, and throw props various times during the film.And by the way, for the "gore sensitive", Rocky Horror is NOT a horror film. It is a rock-musical send-up of old science-fiction and horror films. " For More info : http://www.rockyhorror.com/participation/virgins.php
