Rocky Horror Picture Show comes to Kintyre
Old editions of Campbeltown Couriers were used as props during a special screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show in Campbeltown Picture House (CPH). An audience participation sheet was issued with each ticket to see the cult 1975 musical science-fiction horror-comedy film, starring Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick, last Saturday. It advised cinema-goers when to use various props, including Couriers and other newspapers to shelter from ‘rain’ from water guns. Many people rose to the fancy dress challenge, with several Magentas, Frank N Furters and Riff Raffs in the audience. Even those who opted to wear their own clothing were eager to put their props to good use, getting up out of their seats and into the aisles, while staff also joined in the fun. A CPH spokesperson said: ‘A huge thank you to everyone who came out for the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
‘We had an absolute blast and we hope you did too.’ Kenny Craig captured some of the cinema-goers as they streamed into screen one in these photographs.
