The Outdoor Movie Rocky Horror Picture Show
Saturday October 16 • The mother of all cult classics returns to the big screen! A beloved, rowdy and nocturnal tradition, the Rocky Horror Picture Show has captivated audiences for over 40 years.

The event includes a Rocky Horror costume contest, food trucks, raffles, vendors, accessory bags and a night under the stars with your favorite Transylvanians!
This show will be sold out, so babies… get your tickets today.
