Kenny Black and his small rock band "The Atomic Hellbirds" joined together with the purpose of introducing once again the classic rock genere to the new generation, however they are not being very succesful at the moment.
One day, when they're trying to find a good place where they can practice, they find an abandoned theater. That seems like the perfect place, but they don't have any idea that when the clock hits 12 pm, the theater magically gets filled with famous rock icons from the past.
These rock stars think that they have a lot of potential, and they want them to revive the Rock genere.
Every night, "The Atomic Hellbirds" have to perform for them on the stage, so that they can improve their skills, until the time finally comes, the time when they can reveal themselves to the world, as the new revolutionary sensation in the music industry.
NOTE: Imagine Midnight in Paris (only instead of authors and artist they are rock icons) meets a rock version of La La Land and Sing Street. The movie is going to be very inspiring and even emotional and heartfelt at times, and also it's going to have a great soundtrack (a mixture between original songs and classic rock songs). The rock stars apperances for the most part are going to be long cameos. The movie is also going to have a lot of long tracking shots.

Kenny Black: A 24 year old boy who left college to acomplish his dreams of become a rock star. He's a fan of classic rock and he HATES modern music with a passion, Kenny questions every time how can Justin Bieber or the One Direction guys can be more popular than The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and other great bands. As the movie progresses, he feels more attracted to Felicia.
Felicia Myers: A 28 year old rebelious girl who's really excellent at playing guitar. She instantly joined the band since he met Kenny on a concert. She sees Joan Jett as her heroine.
Troy Russell: Kenny's 23 year old best friend. He is a very good baterist and he also writes the songs. He likes classical rock and hates modern songs just as Kenny. He always complain that this band is too small. He suffered from bulling at college, but Kenny always defended him.
Mortimer Perry: The mid 50s charismatic, well dressed, but at times douchy owner of a rock club named "Morty's Rock House". Once "The Atomic Hellbirds" launched their first music video on YouTube called "She's the Wild One", he calls them to play on his rock club. Even if their peformances are not the best, he still kinda trust in them that they are going to be big. Most of the times, he appears smoking a cigarette.
Rupert Cyrus: A mid 40s music reviewer. Rupert has his own TV show where he reviews every type of songs, but he isn't a fan of "The Atomic Hellbirds" at all. He complains about their costumes and make up, and he also says that in this world full of modern singers, they will be quickly forgotten, since he thinks that nobody cares about clasical rock anymore. He is like the Roger Ebert of music.
Howard Griffin: He was once the owner of that theatre, until he sadly went bankrupt, and his career was completly destroyed, now he is a hobo living on the central park. It's revealed during the middle of the film that he has been spying them entering his theater, he finds the band and tells them his story. His apperance is small but the scene he has is the most emotional one in the movie.
