Theatre Crowd Steals Show At Rock Of Ages

We went to see the movie "Rock Of Ages" last night in the Issaquah Movie Theatre and found the crowd more entertaining than the movie.  The movie, a musical salute to '80s "Hair Bands", stars Tom Cruise as an veteran hard partying rock and roller and Alec Baldwin as a struggling Sunset Strip night club owner.  It borrows from High School Musical, Grease, and Bye Bye Birdie.  However, those shows all had an original soundtrack.  Rock only uses popular songs from the 80s. 
A group of viewers made things interesting by wearing 80s garb and antics such as raising up I-phone simulated cigarette lighter during slow songs as kid would do during concerts. Rock Of Ages may be out of theatres soon, but the audience should get "Oscar consideration".
