Rocky Horror Picture Show

Fasten that garter belt and give yourself over to absolute pleasure this Halloween with the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre!

Join sweethearts Brad and Janet as they meet sweet transvestite Dr Frank-N-Furter and friends as he unveils his latest muscly creation. Come dressed in your glam rock glad rags and prepare to belt out classics like the Time Warp and Touch a, Touch a, Touch Me.

Tickets include a beer, wine or soft drink, a snack and a whistle-stop tour of the solar system before the show. This event is for over-18s only. If you're lucky enough to look under the age of 25 we'll ask you for ID when you arrive, so please bring some with you to avoid disappointment.

Costume Competition!

Time is fleeting, it's nearly Hallowe'en, have you got your costume yet? Over at the Frankenstein Place, there's a strict dress code; can you jump to the left, or take a step to the right in your outfit? If you can, you might be spaced out on sensation, the sensation of winning that is.

Do you think you're the most unconventional conventionalist? Well, this is your chance to prove it! The best dressed Transylvanian at our Hallowe'en screening of Richard O'Brien's masterpiece, The Rocky Horror Picture Show will win two tickets to our fantastic Science Lates!

About the Planetarium


The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
