I'm not sure, but I think what you think is a boom mic might just be the light hanging in front of the church.

I've watched it XXX (large number) of times, and I own the DVD, and it's definitely a boom mike. In one shot it IS the light, but the mike definitely appears twice, because it moves to follow the actors!

It is definitely a light that people claim to be a mic, and it's moving because the wind is blowing.

It is only the church light. And it is moving becuase the wind is blowing.

The "mysterious mic" is truly the light over the church door. The pastor is everyone favorite transvestite (Tim Curry) in a different costume. If you notice, he is standing in front of "magenta and riff-raff".

I watched RHPS, and it's not a boom mic but a hanging light fixture above the church door.

It's not a mic. Richard O'Brian has said in many interviews that it is just a leaf hanging from the tree. And you'll notice that when it appears to follow the actors there is wind and you can see Janet's hair blowing.

It's definitely a mic, unless the church has some sort of hovering spy light that folows the around. Counting who the "pastor" was... who knows.

Sorry, kids. It is indeed a microphone. If you watch the DVD with the commentary on, Richard O'Brien points it out and says something to the effect of "Oh, look, there's a boom microphone that's showing."

You're all right, yet all wrong. There IS a light above Janet's head, but if you look closely in the same shot, the light is on the left of the screen, then there's a shodow of the boom mic on the right. It's not a shadow of the light because it is no where near the same shape. And yes, Richard O'brian does say in the DVD commentary that there's a spot where you can see the boom's shadow. Get over it. There's a light fixture on the church and a boom.
