The Rocky Horror Picture Show with shadowcast by the Leather Medusas

Sat., Oct. 19, 10 p.m.
Michigan Theater 603 E. Liberty St., Ann Arbor Downtown Ann Arbor

We just took a DNA test, turns out we’re 100 percent a sweet transvestite from Transexual, Transylvania filled with antici...pation because Halloween means one thing: it’s Rocky Horror Picture Show season. The campy 1975 film starring Tim Curry as the ravishing Dr. Frank N. Furter, Susan Sarandon as Janet (dammit!) Weiss, and babely boyfriend Brad Majors played by Barry Bostwick broke the mold as a hyper-sexual sci-fi musical that has gone on to touch (oh, has it touched) the beautiful pervs and prudes of the world, becoming a cult phenomenon along the way. Fan rituals will be in full effect, as will the resident Michigan Theater RHPS shadowcast team, the Leather Medusas, who will act out the scenes on stage with the film playing behind them. 734-668-8480

In the 1934 “The Black Cat,” Boris Karloff plays a cat-phobic Satan-worshiping high priest in an Art Deco inspired Hungarian castle reunited with arch enemy Bela Lugosi (in a rare heroic role).

Young Frankenstein

“It’s pronounced Frankensteen.” Whatever way you say it, Mel Brooks’s 1974 spoof of the Universal monster movies is one of the funniest movies ever made. In what is becoming an annual event, the Redford shows the film in a rare, original release 35mm print. Come a half-hour early for a live performance on the Barton theatre organ.
