What was all that noise at the District Megaplex Theatre on Wednesday? Would you believe a 15-foot, 1,500-pound animatronic rock monster named Rocky? Really. The beast, built in St. Louis and transported to Utah for the upcoming FantasyCon, will spend the next few months in South Jordan before moving to the Salt Palace Convention Center for the first FantasyCon from July 3-5.
