Creatures of the night, dust off your gold briefs, pull up your fishnets and slip on some tap shoes… The Rocky Horror Picture Show is taking over Oz Comic-Con Melbourne. Not only will Rocky Horror stars Nell Campbell (Columbia) and Patricia Quinn (Magenta) be appearing at the pop-culture convention, but on July 5 Oz Comic- Con, in conjunction with The Astor Theatre, will also be hosting a screening of the cult-classic film.
The Rocky Horror Picture Show has some of the most passionate fans of any film or TV series, and their love of the movie sees it still play in select cinemas around the world for audience participation nights, with many people attending dressed as characters from the film. And now, on July 5, Rocky Horror devotees will be able to come together for an experience to rival any ‘Annual Transylvanian Convention’. With an introduction by Campbell and Quinn, this is an event for true Rocky Horror devotees and anyone looking for an experience that’s out of this world. It’s a late night picture show not to be missed!
In addition, on Saturday, July 6, Campbell and Quinn will be dining with a group of lucky fans at an exclusive meet and greet put on by event organisers. Oz Comic-Con is certainly not holding back on ways that Rocky Horror lovers can celebrate their favourite obsession! Those wanting to secure a seat at the dinner table with Campbell and Quinn can visit www.ozcomiccon.com, while tickets to the screening can be purchased online via The Astor
This won’t be the only highlight of Oz Comic-Con Melbourne, which is taking place on July 6 and 7 at the Royal Exhibition Building.
