A slinky black leotard, extravagant glitter and artfully ripped fishnets are a few of the finishing touches you’ll need before heading out on a – likely – cold and rainy night to attend this wild show.

The Rocky Horror Show is a fan-favorite Halloween tradition that dates back to the late 1970’s. True Rocky Horror fans flock to local theaters to take part in the action (no, seriously). Here’s where Rocky Horror Show is showing this Halloween around Central Ohio.

PSA : reminder to check your tires before the next heavy rain, lest you find yourself at a creepy castle.

Studio 35 Cinema and Drafthouse

3055 Indianola Ave, Columbus, OH 43202

Make your way to Clintonville in your brightest red lipstick (preferably with an iconic lip-bite factor) to your very own “neighborhood theater -” The Studio 35. The Rocky Horror Picture Show will be playing in all its glory at Studio 35, so make sure you snag a seat (not your fishnets) on October 27th and 28th, 2023. Sit back, relax, and enjoy this cult classic with a beer from Studio 35’s draft selection, order a pizza from their pizza kitchen, and be grateful that no one is forcing you to eat a suspicious meatloaf… By the way, there is a shadowcast performance done by Studio 35!

1187 N High St, Columbus, OH 43201

For the 6th year in a row, The Rocky Horror Picture Show takes the spotlight again at The Short North Stage.
