Rocky Horror fans can be an insanely dedicated—and loving—lot. Take a look at the story of Jim Hetzer. After being coaxed into seeing the notoriously cultish musical ages ago, he’s been embedded in the local Rocky scene for 18 years (he plays Eddie, Meat Loaf’s persona) and is the proud Web master of Cosmo’s Factory, the Internet’s biggest RHPS hub. Hetzer and 20-year Cleveland Rocky vet Kev J. Boycik have spent years meticulously constructing this weekend’s Celluloid Jam. As the first Midwestern convention dedicated to the campy 1975 classic, sequel Shock Treatment, and ‘70s horror/comedy musical Phantom of the Paradise, the Jam promises screenings, live performances, and panels (including the last public appearances of on-film Transylvanians Perry Bedden and Kimi Wong O’Brien). The con will be held on May 15 and 16 at The Drawbridge Inn in Fort Mitchell, KY. $75 advance; $85 at the door. Get a full schedule and venue details here.
