Movies My Friends Have Never Seen

The podcast where my friends watch classic movies for the first time. Hosted by Nick Nadel. Logo by Tim Finn.

This week we've got a special Halloween treat with filmmaker Bill Scurry returning to the podcast to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show for the first time at last year's 40th anniversary screening at the Ziegfeld Theater. Join us as Bill experiences Rocky the way it's meant to be seen -- with Barry Bostwick and 200 screaming, costumed fans.

After the screening, Bill and I talk about Rocky Horror as the first movie "meme,"  Tim Curry's enduring greatness, whether or not it's actually a "bad" movie and much more. 

Follow Bill on Twitter and check out his short film work over on his website. Here's an episode of his series No Talking During the Movie about Liquid Sky, a film (like Rocky Horror) that played at NYC's Waverly Theater. 

Here's a nice piece on the cultural and social significance of Rocky Horror. And, hey, why not read about the late, great Ziegfeld Theater
