The future is here: The Alamo Drafthouse now has an official policy for Google Glass in their theaters. According to a tweet from owner Tim League, "Google Glass is officially banned from Drafthouse auditoriums once lights dim for trailers."

League tells Deadline that they've been mulling the "the potential piracy problem" for over a year, but decided not to make a call until Glass started showing up in Drafthouse theaters, which it did this month. The move is in keeping with the dine-in theater chain's militant anti-distraction policy, which bans texting, tweeting, talking, and any other asshole-ish behavior during the show.
