The Rocky Horror Picture Show

Dining Area (Room 101) of Davies Center
Rock-and-roll sci-fi horror satire that is probably the oddest, most off-the-wall cult film ever made. A soon-to-be married couple (Susan Sarandon, Barry Bostwick) is stranded in an isolated area, and they seek refuge at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter (Tim Curry), a transvestite Frankenstein in rhinestone heels.
“A fast-paced pastiche of camp, science fiction, rock music, horror, and more camp ...
The plot is only semi-comprehensible, but the nearly non-stop musical numbers — brilliant conflations of glam-rock and showtunes — and transgressive sexual energy keep things moving” (A.V. Club).
Tickets for this Winter Carnival tradition are $8 ($5 with UW-Eau Claire student ID) at the Service Center and at the door.
