Would Halloween even happen if The Rocky Horror Picture Show didn't screen in the Delmar Loop?

There's very little horror (unless you're terrified by alternative lifestyles) but a whole lot of singing about hotness and being brave enough to live out your dreams. Oh, and not to be too spoilery about a 40-plus-year-old movie, but Meatloaf fans: His name is taken very literally here.
