Dr. Everett Scott: This sonic transducer, it is I suppose some kind of audio-vibratory-physio-molecular transport device?
At the beginning of the film, just after the wedding photo is taken we see the father of the bride run up the church steps. Seconds later, we see him running up the steps again. See more...

The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) - 34 with pictures
Screenshots of mistakes that have been online for less than a year are only visible to members, but the rest are available to everyone. Don't forget to check out the picture of the day, updated daily, and the top 30 screenshots too.
Visible crew/equipment: Just after Brad says, "I really love the skillful way you beat the other girls to the bride's bouquet," as 'Dammit Janet' begins, twice it cuts to a shot of the "church caretakers" standing idly in front of the doors. In these two shots their marks are visible at their feet; there are outlines on the ground around their shoes, which vanish in following shots.
Continuity: During "There's a Light" Janet's sweater changes colour. First it's white, then blue, then white, then blue, then white. In the car, it's white, once they get out of the car, it's definitely pale blue from all camera angles and gets slightly darker as it gets wetter, then there's a 7 second shot where it's definitely white, then there's another two shots where it's blue, then they reach the door and it's white for the remainder of the time it's in the movie. It's been suggested that there's colored lighting, but nothing else picks up nearly that amount of blue, i.e. her pink shirt isn't lavender, its white buttons aren't blue, their teeth aren't greenish, etc.
Continuity: As Brad and Janet enter the ballroom at the beginning of "The Time Warp", a red carpet runs from the throne at the opposite end of the room, down the steps, and clear across the floor to the ballroom entrance. After the second verse, as Riff Raff and Magenta dance across the floor, the carpet stops short at the bottom of the steps. The full-length carpet reappears and disappears several times during this number.
Continuity: At the beginning of Columbia's solo in "The Time Warp" she is sitting on the jukebox and wearing her gold glitter hat. Then, during the refrain, we see the hat on the floor near the jukebox, sans Columbia. Immediately after the refrain, Columbia has her hat back on as she does her tap dance. [There's about 9 seconds that Columbia's off-screen that she could have retrieved it, and about 4 seconds Magenta and Riff Raff are off-screen and end up next to Columbia and could have picked it up and given it to her, but there's no reason for it to have been out in the middle of the floor to begin with.]
Continuity: During "Sweet Transvestite", Frank throws his cape off onto the throne. Part of the cape is over the left side of the back of the throne and the front of the left arm of the throne is not covered at all. There's a cut to Brad & Janet, then when it cuts back to Frank the cape is evenly draped over both arms of the throne covering them all the way to the floor with none on the back.
Continuity: After Frank-N-Furter makes his initial appearance, when he bumps into Janet on the way out, her necklace chain is under her large pink dress collar. Once Frank-N-Furter leaves, her chain is actually around her neck now, over the large collar, so Riff Raff can easily pull the dress down unhindered.
Continuity: In the scene where Brad and Janet first talk with Frank in the lab (before Frank's speech beginning with 'Tonight, my unconventional conventionalists...'), Frank makes a comment about how Brad is "so dominant." At that moment, Brad closes his robe but does not button it. However, when the camera switches angles, it is buttoned.
Continuity: When the color machine has been lowered and Frank has finished opening the spigots, there is a shot which shows his reflection in the monitor on the console where Riff Raff is turning the crank. In the reflection his hands are up in the air, waiting for the color machine to be lowered - which, of course, it already has.
Continuity: When Eddie escapes the deep freeze, he wears three rings on his left hand (his middle and ring fingers and his pinky). Bizarrely, the pinky ring actually disappears in quite a few shots, including when Eddie plays the sax and when he lifts Columbia, just before they mess around on the floor.
