About

Let’s do the Time Warp again! Join us for a special June double feature of delightful films from the 1970s that celebrate the historic legacy of LGBT Pride month at Hammond Castle Museum!

Did you know that Hammond Castle Museum was once the shooting location for a major Hollywood motion picture? Join Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony award-winner  Liza Minnelli, alongside Ken Howard, and Robert Moore, first director of the ground-breaking 1968 Queer play The Boys in the Band, in Tell Me That You Love Me Junie Moon, Director Otto Preminger’s 1970 adaptation of Marjorie Kellogg’s novel of the same name. An episodic story about social outcasts, one of whom (played by Moore) is an out gay man in a wheelchair, coming together as part of an unlikely found family, one of the film’s major sequences takes place across several locations both inside and outside of Hammond Castle Museum. See some of these scenes in the very room in which they were shot 55 years ago! 

Then, take a trip from Hammond Castle Museum to the castle of the Mad Scientist Dr. Frank-N-Furter in the cult 1974 hit The Rocky Horror Picture Show. Join actors Tim Curry, Susan Sarandon and Barry Bostwick in Jim Sharman’s legendarily campy adaptation of Richard O’Brien stage musical send-up of Hammer Films and other kitsch science fiction and horror schlock. Come up to the lab and see what films are on the slab. We hope to see you shiver with antici-

Please Note: Screenings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show often allow audiences to bring an array of accessories to enhance their experience, including toast, rice, water guns, confetti, rolls of toilet paper, and newspapers for the iconic audience participation moments. While the Museum hopes that all visitors will find this double feature an exciting and engaging experience, we are first and foremost a nonprofit educational institution open daily to the public with a vast collection of unique and fragile historical artifacts on display. As a result, these items will not be allowed into the Museum during this screening. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in helping us to ensure the safety of our collection. The Museum both allows and encourages cosplay for this event!
