Los Angeles Rocky Horror

The Los Angeles area has had a strong and devoted Rocky Horror following since The Rocky Horror Show opened at the Roxy Theatre on March 24, 1974. The Rocky Horror Picture Show had a special sneak-preview at the Fox Venice Theater on September 25, 1975 and premiered at the UA Westwood the following night. It has played continuously in the Los Angeles area ever since. At its peak in the early 80s, it was screening in over 20 local area theaters on Friday and Saturday at midnight (and midnight and 2 AM at the legendary Tiffany Theater on the Sunset Strip).

Los Angeles remains an active part of ongoing Audience Participation with several long-lived shadowcasts with weekly screenings and occasional special Rocky-related events.
