A week of “Rocky Horror”

The strength of cult-film fandom has never been within its numbers, but rather its surviving defiance of popularity and initial negative criticism. Whether it's a movie in the it's-so-bad-it's-good category (“Plan 9 from Outer Space,” “Troll 2”), or one that couldn't be fully appreciated in a theater (“The Big Lebowski,” “The Evil Dead,” “Office Space”), the mother of all cult-motion pictures will always be the British musical comedy, “The Rocky Horror Picture Show.” It's the longest-running theatrical release in film history. Watching this bizarre parody of the science-fiction and horror genres is not a passive event (except for maybe virgins). With its overt leniency toward yelling at the screen, throwing props and costumed re-enactments, “Rocky Horror” is the quintessential midnight-movie-going experience. GayRVA.com presents a week of time-warping events starting July 11, benefiting AIDSWalk Richmond. Featuring a shopping party, concerts, karaoke and happy hours, it all culminates with a special performance and screening at Movieland on July 17.
