The Alamo Drafthouse has commissioned a poster set to promote our Rocky Horror Picture Show screenings. The first poster is now available:

The artwork is by Ken Taylor in Australia, who apparently does a lot of work for bands like NIN, Slayer, etc. This poster is intended to be the first in a series of four. The next ones would feature Brad & Janet, Frank & Columbia, and finally Eddie & Rocky. This will only happen if they sell at least 75 prints of this one though.

The posters are four color silkscreen prints in metallic ink on heavy stock art paper, and are individually numbered. If you look closely at the bottom you can just make out where it says "Shadow cast performed by Queerios!". Hey, that's us! 8)

So do I. I feel like a maroon for not knowing this, but what do they mean by "uncut sheet" vs. the standard print?

I actually wasn't entirely sure, myself. I'd call and ask.

I believe what they're talking about is the magenta/riff posters are supposed to be 2 seperate posters, or each 1/2 of a "standard sheet". But for some reason they left them uncut. I can think of several possible reasons they might leave the sheet uncut:

1. Its cheaper/less hassle to leave them uncut.
2. An uncut poster will fit into a standard sized poster tube.
3. An uncut sheet will fit into one of the comon sized frames, saving the purchaser from having to get them custom framed.

Then again, it could be some other reason entirely.

They're available now. It's possible the first one (Riff/Magenta) could go out of print, but it hasn't yet.
