is cult film is awesomely confusing, and impossible to describe. Fortunately the Rocky Horror Picture Show’s widespread reputation has made the introductions mostly unnecessary. The cast of characters includes transvestites from outer space, a newlywed couple, and a Frankenstein-esque dream man project. Sounds mad, but somehow all of this is seamlessly fit into the story.

Audience participation is an integral part of the Rocky Horror Picture Show, and a screening like this isn’t available in Joensuu very often. So make sure to dress the part, and join Dr. Frank-N-Furter’s orgy – at least by belting the choruses, if you’re feeling otherwise bashful. In a cold, dark November, a pre-party doesn’t get any better than this. Let’s do the time warp again!
