This past Saturday night, myself,jesslin, marielaf, metyldapryde, and several other friends made a venture to the McHenry Outdoor Theater to see two classic cult faves: Little Shop of Horrors (the 1961 B&W version) and the infamous Rocky Horror Picture Show.
It was an excellent and rather nostalgic evening for me, since I realized that the last time I was at an outdoor show was in 1977—heh, I was 12 (I originally thought it was '74, but I realized my error today).
If you've never experienced an outdoor, I highly recommend it—and do it soon, too, since there aren't that many left in the country still in business (although more than you might think). Check out Drive-Ins.com to see what's still around, and a bunch of other cool pictures and stuff.
The movies themselves were of course a blast, especially since I haven't seen either in a long while, let alone on the big screen—and never at an outdoor. There were plenty of folks dressed and ready for RHPS, too, including a bunch of teens—heh, the tradition lives on to another generation—very cool, and of course, the appropriate lines were shouted, toast was thrown, and the TP looked like fireworks as it was thrown high into the projection light stream.
Too much fun. :)
Oh, and here's a photo I managed during the intermission—gotta love the dancing hot dog. ^_^
