TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Lines of people stretched along Congress into Fox Theater Thursday night for "Hot Bath an' a Stiff Drink", a Western shot at Old Tucson Studios. Many among the crowd were also part of the scenes as extras.

"It was really exciting, just met a lot of really nice people," said movie extra Keenan Thompson.

"Arizona, Tucson, Old Tucson, you know it's good for her to learn that. I'm sure you probably won't even see me," laughed movie extra Kate Tuchscherer.

On the big screen, you might find many of the stars familiar from popular TV shows and movies. These actors have been all over the globe, but say Tucson and its people and scenery stand out as a welcome destination.

"The local talent, all the people who worked on the crew, all the people of the crew, we had fantastic people," said actor Grainger Hines.

"It was nothing but a thrill. I loved the terrain it was just so wonderful. You know, we never knew what we were going to get when we got on set," said actress Mirelly Taylor.

"I've been to Tucson many times. I love this city," said actor Rex Linn.

If comments from these actors is any indicator, hopefully we'll see more films coming back to our desert.

"I think Tucson has it all. And if I ever produce a film, and it lends itself to a surrounding like this, I'm coming to Tucson," Linn said.
