Omniplex Cork brings you back this Halloween with a much loved classic, The Rocky Horror Picture Show for a one week only run. This Halloween musical concerns the misadventures of Brad Majors (Barry Bostwick) and Janet Weiss (Susan Sarandon) inside a strange mansion that they come across on a rainy night. After their car breaks down in the woods, they seek refuge in a towering castle nearby. Greeting them at the door is a ghoulish butler named Riff Raff (Richard O'Brien), who introduces them to a bacchanalian collection of partygoers dressed in outfits from some sort of interplanetary thrift shop. The host of this gathering is the eccentric Dr. Frank N. Furter (Tim Curry), a mad scientist who claims to be from another planet.
