We've conducted a survey and the response has been overwhelmingly positive in regard to doing a Rocky Horror Picture Show event in conjunction with our haunt for Spring Break (SCREAM BREAK). Can anyone give me some direction as to who I need to contact to obtain the licensing and permission to play the movie for a paying audience? I've searched the Internet and all I've been able to come up with is licensing for schools or libraries. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I'll talk w/ a theater buddy of mine who does Rocky Horror every year. Not sure it will be the same peeps, but I'll see what I can do!

I just bought the 3-disc anniversary edition of Rocky Horror and Shock Treatment (anybody remember that one?) the other day. It's distributed by 20th Century Fox Home Entertainment.


This is from there web site. It may not be the right place but it may be a starting point.

If Participant wishes to license any Fox Material, including but not limited to, Material contained in this site, please contact the Fox Clip Licensing Department at (310) 369-3605.

You might also check with Swank Motion Pictures--they do licensing of films for non-theater exhibition.


(Yes, I know it sounds like an "adult" site, but it's not.)

Not sure if they have Rocky Horror in their library, but it's worth a call.

Thanks for the posts! I called the FOX number and the number is primarily for using mocie clips or stills. I did send an email to SWANK Motion Pictures a few days back and I'm waiting to hear from them. Their website gives the impression that they are primarily targeted at libraries and schools, but I'm hoping they can at least point me in the right direction. Thanks again!

Hillary Swank hasn't made that many movies , has she?
She does seem to die in them, though.
