A screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” has just been added to Millennium Park’s outdoor film series, so let’s do the time warp, again.
The R-rated cult classic is scheduled for 6 p.m. Sept. 14 at the Pritzker Pavilion.
It wouldn’t be a proper “Rocky Horror” event without audience participation. City officials said most of the usual shenanigans are welcome at the free, public screening, with a few exceptions.
When it comes to props, here’s what you should leave at home: toast, toilet paper, water guns, rice, balloons, confetti, hot dogs and prunes.
Here’s what you can bring to the park (just don’t throw any of them at the screen): sponges, rubber gloves, glow sticks, noisemakers and party hats.
And, for those new to “Rocky Horror,” here’s what the props are for and when to use them.
“Rocky Horror” is being presented in collaboration with the Music Box Theatre and will include a live performance in front of the screen by Midnight Madness Shadowcast.
As part of the same outdoor film season, Christoper Nolan’s “The Dark Knight,” the second film in his Batman trilogy, will be shown on the big screen at Pritzker Pavilion at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 31.
Much of the movie, for which Heath Ledger earned a posthumous Oscar, was shot in Chicago. Look for cameos from the Willis Tower, Navy Pier, Marina City, Wacker Drive, the Thompson Center and, memorably, an old Brach’s factory that doubled for Gotham Hospital.
