This Week in 1976: The 'Rocky Horror' Cult Is Born

Midnight may be the hour that Cinderella turned from a princess into a peon, but it's also the hour when Tim Curry turned from an ordinary actor into a queen.

Midnight is what transformed 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' from a flop into an institution. It wasn't the first midnight movie (John Waters' 1972 trash epic 'Pink Flamingos' got there earlier), but it became the biggest when it began running at 12AM at New York City's Waverly Theatre 35 years ago this week, on April 1, 1976.
