Film buffs can do the time warp at Northycote Farm

Film fans can do the outdoor time warp during a one off screening of the Rocky Horror Picture Show at a City of Wolverhampton beauty spot.

Northycote Farm, in Underhill Lane, is the venue for the special screening on Saturday 16 September which is being hosted by Open Air Film and Chill.

The City of Wolverhampton Council attraction has already held successful outdoor cinema nights - showing Top Gun and Dirty Dancing.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show will be the last in the summer season of outdoor films and it is hoped lots of people will be taken on a 'strange journey' watching the cult classic featuring sweethearts Brad, played by Barry Bostwick, and Janet, played by Susan Sarandon, who discover the eerie mansion of Dr Frank-N-Furter, a transvestite scientist, played by Tim Curry. 

As their innocence is lost, Brad and Janet meet a houseful of wild characters, including a rocking biker, played by Meat Loaf, and a creepy butler, Richard O'Brien. Through elaborate dances and rock songs, including The Time Warp, Frank-N-Furter unveils his latest creation: a muscular man named Rocky.

The gates open at 7pm and the film will start at sunset, around 8.15pm.

Councillor John Reynolds, Cabinet Member for City Economy, said: "Fans of the film traditionally dress in their most wild outfits but on this occasion we'd advise some warm clothing too.

"It's the last in the 2017 series of outdoor cinema screenings which have proved very popular both at Northycote Farm and Bantock Park."

Tickets start from £14 per person and are available at Open Air Film & Chill - Rocky Horror.
