Santa Clarita fans of the classic “Rocky Horror Picture Show” had the chance to catch one of two screenings the city hosted over this past weekend at The MAIN Theater.

The weekend before Halloween tends to draw crowds to the 1975 musical sci-fi classic as attendees dress the part, yell at the screen and, in general, create an interactive experience for the audience.

Santa Clarita was looking to foster that kind of fun, allowing folks to bring props and engage with their fellow audience members, said Kyle Loper, events supervisor for the city of Santa Clarita.

“This was our second year hosting it at The MAIN,” Lopez said. “It’s something we plan to continue successfully for the next couple of years and we’re hoping to grow it.”

The city reached out to local campuses such as California Institute of the Arts and College of the Canyons, and attendees seemed to really enjoy getting into the spirit of the show.

“We had people who were in some serious costumes,” Lopez said. “It was nice to see the range of costumes that came to the event.”
