You will need rubber gloves, toast, a copy of the Cleveland Plain Dealer if you are sitting in the front rows or a water pistol if you are sitting in the back rows, a roll of Scott toilet paper, and rice. So far it sounds like you are going anywhere but a movie. The rubber gloves you will need for the laboratory scene when Dr. Frank N. Furter, played by Tim Curry, snaps his rubber gloves three times. If you are sitting in the back rows you need the water pistols because you make it rain when the rain scene comes on to open the movie immediately following the wedding scene. If you are sitting in the front rows you will need the Cleveland Plain Dealer to protect yourself from the rain because that is the paper that Brad, played by Barry Bostwick, uses to cover himself and his wife Janet, played by Susan Sarandon, from the rain. The toilet paper is to be thrown when Dr. Scott the criminologist appears on screen. The toast is for the scene where Dr. Frank proposes a toast at dinner. Don’t butter the toast please, the theater owners hate cleaning that up. The rice is to be thrown in the opening scene which is a wedding scene. Now you have your props and you know when to use them. It is time to take a jump to the left.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show will probably go down in history as the most popular movie that ever bombed. Were it not for the attraction that the young alienated population felt towards the movie, and the freedom that a midnight showing seems to provide, the movie would have been shelved after 6 weeks and never heard from again. But it became a success and stands as the movie with the longest theater run in the history of motion pictures and because it keeps being played it looks like the world will never be rid of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
