A shadow cast group known as Sweet Translucent Dreams performed “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at the Pocono Cinema Oct. 13.

The group created an interactive performance as the film played in the background.

After collecting their movie ticket audience members were given a bag of props including a roll of toilet paper, toast, playing cards, a glow stick and some rice to throw to the crowd.

“I’ve never been to a shadow cast before,” said Benjamin Mortensen, junior. “I didn’t know what to expect but it was a fun experience.”

The 1975 cult classic tells a story of a young couple stuck with a flat tire during a storm and run to a nearby mansion to call for help.

The mansion is filled with people in extravagant costumes who are celebrating a convention hosted by Dr. Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist.

Through dancing and numerous songs, Furter reveals his latest creation, a muscle man named Rocky.

By the end of the show, the theater was littered with rice and toilet paper was strewn across the aisles.

Sweet Translucent Dreams types of venues like theaters, bowling alleys and drive in movies.

“Rock Horror” has been shown continually in theaters since its release in 1975, making it the “longest running movie in history” according to Time magazine.The
