How do I host a screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Shasta asked:

I would like to host a traditional screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show on my college campus complete with costumes and audience participation. Does anybody know anything about the royalties to the movie and how I could legally show RHPS?


  1. There are lots of websites about how to throw the parties…..I don’t think you need to get loyalty really, you’re just showing the movie. You’re not saying it’s your own.

    I think you should buy your roommate nice things and she’d be a bouncer at the showing, in the event the fuzz tries to bust up your illegal fun….

    Remember, she

    As long as you aren’t charging admission or making a profit somehow, you should be good to go. You would only have to pay royalties if you charge more than your cost.

  4. Dear Anonymous: “Weree” is not a word. You misspelled 1 out of 39 words potsed. Please note your ratio of incorrect words to correct words is much higher than mine. Yes I was a teacher for three years. My kids did great. I have some posts written I will post when ready about the experience. Please don’t come back to my site. You’re confused and mean spirited. We don’t need you. Gregory

  5. I would like to know what route you are taking thuogrh Iowa. There is a group of us who would like to offer food, shelter, support, etc. for you when you travel thuogrh our state. I am in Iowa City and wondered if you’d be anywhere close to us. If you could let me know, I’d be happy to get some things arranged for you while you pass thuogrh. I’ve been listening to your conversations with John Williams on WGN and am so amazed by your faith and courage. Let me know if we can help. Lynne Westphal
