WEST HOMESTEAD, Pa. - Police say nobody was arrested when a fight broke out during a Pittsburgh-area showing of "The Dark Knight Rises," prompting audience members to flee the theater.
Homestead police Chief Jeffrey DeSimone says his officers were called to handle crowd control at the AMC Loews Waterfront 22 theater during the incident shortly after 6 p.m. Sunday.
DeSimone suspects patrons ran out of the theater because they were a little "jumpy" in the wake of a shooting that left 12 dead during a midnight premiere of the movie last week in Aurora, Colo.

Nice shopping and theater complex in a bad neighborhood. A shame. I’m surprised the whole place isn’t boarded up.
Thyey’ve had gang violence (shootings) there before. For the most part, the Waterfront is nice and there is a good police presence to keep the peace. The trouble is usually at the movie theater. There was a shooting at some hip-hop movie a couple years back, I think on Christmas... usual suspects are tyically, ummm.... “urban yoots.”
I had some business with the developer of that complex back in the 90’s when it was still on the drawing board. I looked at the proposed location and said “what, are you NUTS???’
They were from out of state and had no idea how bad that area was. But they went ahead and built an upscale mall, ironically on the very site of the great Homestead Strike of 1892.
I know it was not the Amish - - they do not go to the movie theaters!!
Wonder if any of those urban yoots look like Obama?
People in these towns say they welcome the new developments, but they do nothing to keep them safe and viable. Then when the developments turn into karp, they whine and complain.
