Police officers from ten different departments were called to the Valley View Theater in Cleveland on Friday night after two-hundred to three-hundred mostly black youths brawled in the lobby and parking lot.
Two girls brawl in the lobby.
This beating was captured on cellphone at the theater.

News Net 5 reported:
A viewer sent NewsChannel5 video of the fight that broke out at the Valley View movie theater Friday evening.
Police say nearly 200 to 300 juveniles were involved in the brawl, which happened in the lobby.
The call came in about 9:30 p.m. at the Cinemark At Valley View And XD located on Canal Road, according to police.
Valley View Police Chief Matthew March told NewsChannel5’s Michael Baldwin that 10 police departments responded to the scene.
March said after the juveniles started fighting in the lobby, theater security and police moved the juveniles outside.
The juveniles were upset that they had paid for tickets, so managers began reimbursing them, according to March.
From there, the juveniles began to disperse among restaurants nearby, starting fights throughout the area, March explained.
March said officers began telling people inside of nearby restaurants to stay inside for their safety and some restaurants were even told to lock their doors.
