On the footsteps of the RHPS, 30 years later

 

Thirty years ago, the night before Christmas 1974, the shooting of the Rocky Horror Picture Show came to an end.

Christophe (Riff) and Brigitte (Magenta) went on a pilgrimage on location on December 24, 2004. To keep a record of this occasion, Christophe took a series of pictures, made two videos and a map, in order for you to understand the way the visit goes.

They went back there at the end of May 2005 and they visited more rooms, made new pictures, new videos and panoramics.

the Rocky Horror Show was first
performed in June 1973

The church for the wedding scene

between the Studios and the castle
