Armed Guards For Black Moviegoers Attending Civil Rights Drama (VIDEO)

"The new Civil Rights drama Lee Daniels' The Butler is a smash hit, but according to some Regal Cinemas patrons in Silver Spring, Maryland, the theater's security for the film was a colossal bomb.

A Twitter user named Tiffany Flowers reported that patrons of the Silver Spring Regal Cinemas had their tickets to The Butler checked twice, and were greeted in the theater by armed policemen.

Managers at the theater have been directed not to comment, referring media inquiries to a phone number that's unmanned on weekends, but Washington ABC affiliate WJLA will air a report on the story this evening."*

The Young Turks hosts Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian break it down.
