Hosted by Henri Mazza, Videoke is like karaoke except it's in a movie theatre, and you're not singing but acting out scenes from movies. Now, it's been said that first-timers should not participate (practice at www.videoke.org), but the night we went, two Videoke virgins won first place. That's right, they have judges scoring performances and picking the top three finalists. The audience, however, is the ultimate judge. Bring props, dress up, create your own dialogue, and gain a new understanding of the phrase "awkward moment." After witnessing a dildo lightsaber sword fight, we will never see Star Wars the same way again.
