35 years later, are you still shivering with antici-pation?

Next weekend, Downtown Los Angeles plays host to SinsCon, a convention of Rocky Horror Picture fans celebrating the motions picture's 35th year in continuous theatrical release.

The rock musical was bashed by critics when it premiered in 1975, but by 1977 was a staple of midnight screenings known for elaborate audience interaction, with repeat attendees dressed as their favorite characters and performing dance numbers or singing along in their seats and the aisles.

Convention events include an opening reception and pajama party at the Standard on Thursday night, a costume pageant at Club 740 and prom at the Alexandria on Friday, and on Saturday night a screening of Rocky Horror at the Million Dollar Theatre, with an introduction by star Barry Bostwick. For the full schedule and ticket info visit their official site.

We're giving away two pairs of tickets for Saturday night's screening. For your chance to win, tell us in the comments below about your favorite Rocky Horror picture show experience. If you've never attended one of the midnight shows, that's totally okay - just let us know what's been keeping you (if you win, we promise they'll take extra special care of you). Entries accepted until Tuesday at noon.
