The Historic Gillioz

Let’s do the Time Warp again! The historic Gillioz Theatre will be showing the 1975 classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show this Friday, October 28 at 7:30 p.m. Based on the 1973 musical stage production The Rocky Horror Show, the story centres on a young engaged couple whose car breaks down in the rain near a castle where they seek a telephone to call for help. The castle or country home is occupied by strangers in elaborate costumes celebrating an annual convention. They discover the head of the house is Dr. Frank N. Furter, an apparently mad scientist who actually is an alien transvestite from the planet Transsexual in the galaxy of Transylvania, who creates a living muscle man named Rocky in his laboratory.
