Got Google Glass. Don't Go To Movies! They Are Banned In Theaters Now!

Google Glass Banned In Theaters Now!

If a movie fan is wearing a Google Glass or other similar wearable, he or she is not welcome in movie theaters now. I wonder what happens if he or she has the prescription glasses integrated to the frame? Could / Would the disabilities act would save them? I doubt as in Ohio, a man wearing prescription glass attached to a Google Glass. Self described, "Ignorant Idiot", got Federal Agents to the theater

The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), Hollywood's lobbying group, has joined hands with, National Association of Theatre Owners (NATO) to prohibit Google Glass and other wearables from the theates. You can read the statement at MPAA site, but it is just the same BS that they have spewing for ages.
The gist of the statement is;
"all phones must be silenced and other recording devices, including wearable devices, must be turned off and put away at show time. Individuals who fail or refuse to put the recording devices away may be asked to leave. If theater managers have indications that illegal recording activity is taking place, they will alert law enforcement authorities when appropriate, who will determine what further action should be taken."
So if you have wherewithal to afford a Google Glasses, you certainly have the means to watch the movie without being an "Ignorant Idiot", inviting Federal Agents to the theater
