Cult classics are called such because of their devoted fanbase, and one of the most loyal is that of “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” The Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival too has a loyal following, which made the annual end-of-fest screening of “Rocky Horror” so special in years past.
Marking its 25th anniversary, the HSDFF is bringing back the tradition for 2016 and it’s bringing one of the movie’s stars with it. Barry Bostwick, who played Brad Majors in the 1975 film, will be in attendance for a “Rocky Horror” screening on Friday, Oct. 14. at The Central Theater.
With Golden Globes and Tony awards under his belt, Bostwick has a lengthy career in TV, film and theater — including roles in “Spin City,” “Spy Hard” and as the original Danny Zuko in “Grease” on Broadway — but he’s still best known for his role in “Rocky Horror.”
The HSDFF is a 10-day event packed with film screenings and events taking place all over Hot Springs with its home base at the Arlington Resort Hotel and Spa. This year’s silver anniversary fest will conclude with a screening of Sharon Baker’s “My Friend Ed” hosted by iconic actor Ed Asner and includes favorites like the Women Behind the Lens series, the Spa City Sports Series, AARP Films for Grownups and the Being Human series.
The festival runs Oct. 7-16. For more information, film lineups and to snag your passes, check out the HSDFF website.
