The Rocky Horror Picture Show


Scottish actor Christopher Malcolm, who was a regular screen presence through the early seventies through the late eighties, and a cast regular on hit British comedy Absolutely Fabulous, died today at the age of 67. His passing was confirmed by his daughter, playwright Morgan Lloyd Malcolm, via Twitter. Today the world lost a beautiful, brilliant man. My dad Christopher Malcolm left peacefully and with dignity. He will always be my hero. X — morgan lloyd malcolm (@mogster) February 15, 2014 In addition to his television and film roles, Malcolm was an accomplished, classically trained Shakespearean actor, beginning his career with the prestigious Royal Shakespeare Company in England. He performed in standards like “Macbeth” and “Hamlet,” though his push to mainstream audiences came during his appearance as Brad Majors in The Royal Court Theatre’s original run of “The Rocky Horror Show” in 1973. While a number of the stage cast transitioned to Jim Sharman’s big screen adaptation, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, in 1975, Tim Curry amongst them, Malcolm was replaced as Brad by Barry Bostwick.

“Movie Houses of Worship” is a regular feature spotlighting our favorite movie theaters around the world, those that are like temples of cinema catering to the most religious-like film geeks. This week, we have an entry from our new newswriter Samantha Wilson. If you’d like to suggest or submit a place you regularly worship at the altar of cinema, please email our weekend editor. La Paloma Theatre Location: 471 South Coast Highway 101, Encinitas, CA Opened: February 11, 1928 No. of screens: 1 Current first-run titles: The charm of La Paloma comes in the fact that you never quite know what’s going to be featured in a given week at the theater. With one screen available, there’s a semblance of a schedule drawn up: there’s always a somewhat obscure first-run showing (currently Mud), and a big name usually sneaks its way in – right now it’s The Lone Ranger.


Rocky Horror Picture Show

What better movie to cap off another successful Halloween season than The Rocky Horror Picture Show? Never mind that it’s November 1 – or after depending on when you find your way here. This movie, as horrifyingly amazing as it is, works year round, which is why it still plays at midnight every Saturday night in most cities. Just check your local showtimes before running out in your garter and fishnets. And we have Richard O’Brien, the man who wrote the original musical on which this movie is based, to thank for this gift that keeps on giving, burnt toast and newspapers included in that giving. We’re even more fortunate that he put his thoughts on The Rocky Horror Picture Show down in commentary form, which we’re hitting the PLAY button on right now. Let there be lips. That’s what they say. You know, at the midnight shows. Just keep reading.



What better way to spend your day off than to talk about sick sexual shit? Just because your life must resume its wanker routine tomorrow doesn’t mean that your sex life must. Work out your kinks by introducing a few. And where there’s sex, there’s movies.



The gap is tightening – movies are either full-blown successes or major flops. In a content-driven culture, how are some films that fail at the box office supposed to fly under the radar to have a second-life on DVD?

Had our own Adam Sweeney not just given Repo! The Genetic Opera such a glowing review from Fantastic Fest this morning, I probably would have let this little piece of news slip by. Instead, we are talking about Repo! The Genetic Opera…



There’s anger out there. Serious, deep seated anger has gripped a segment of the population. The Rocky Horror Picture Show fanatics are foaming at the mouth, furious at the prospect of the most feared word in the world of film lovers: Remake.


A movie that attracts a near-rabid fan following is a cult movie, that is if or until it “goes public” and finds itself on famous lists like the American Film Institute’s.
