Century Cinema Presents:
The Rocky Horror Picture Show

27th October

It's the weird and wonderful as newly engaged couple Brad and Janet encounter a problem when their car halts in the rain. They both look for contact, only to find themselves at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite. A place to stay is offered, but will Brad and Janet want to remain there? Especially when a large group of Transylvanians dance to the 'Time Warp', Dr. Frank-N-Furter builds his own man and a whole host of participation for the audience to enjoy.

The film is a spoof and homage of the Sci-Fi and Horror genre of the 50's and 60's, so there are some mildly frightening scenes, generally during the creation scene, but overall, the film has a comedic tone throughout.

Customer Notice: This film contains sex and nudity, so if you're easily offended this might not be the film for you!

Fancy Dress Welcome

Tickets available online, at the box office or on the door
