CORNELIUS, Ore. (AP) - “Rogue One” has been a smashing success at the box office, but not every moviegoer has been riveted by the Star Wars story.

Sheriff’s deputies in suburban Portland say a man awoke to an empty theater Saturday morning after falling asleep during the movie. When he tried to leave, he triggered a motion-sensor alarm in the lobby. He called 9-1-1 for help and deputies helped him get out through an emergency exit.

The Washington County Sheriff’s Office tells KATU-TV (https://bit.ly/2isMdE3 ) it doesn’t appear the incident is crime-related. More likely, theater employees forgot to check for customers at closing time.
