"Rogue One" is a standalone Star Wars film, and one Oregon man found himself sitting alone in an empty theater after he fell asleep during the movie.

According to Washington County Sheriff's deputies, the man awoke around 1 a.m. Christmas Eve to an empty theater. Confused, he attempted to leave the building but triggered a motion sensor alarm in the lobby. He then called 911 to get help, because unfortunately, his Jedi mind tricks weren't working.

"Help me, Washington County Sheriff's deputies, you're my only hope!" he (probably) said.

He was rescued shortly after via an emergency exit. Deputies say the incident likely wasn't crime-related and theater staff had just forgotten to check for customers at closing time.
