The Rocky Horror Picture Show is the ultimate movie experience: a mad mix of classic horror/sci-fi, camp, super-charged sensuality and outrageous fantasy. This cult classic from 1975 features the story of an “ordinary” couple and an unforgettable night at the castle of Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a mad-scientist from the planet Transexual, Transylvania.

All attendees will be required to show proof of vaccination or negative COVID test upon arrival at The Smith. Masks must be worn while at The Smith but may be removed once seated.
The Smith’s box office will be open for in person or over the phone sales Tuesday-Friday from 10am-4pm. Online tickets may be purchased at any time. All phone or online purchases will receive a digital ticket sent to a valid email.
