[Wow!] Web Legend "TRON Guy" Banned from Seeing TRON: Legacy in Famed Suit



When you've become an Internet meme for your love of TRON, a movie theater really ought to let you watch the film in costume.

Back before the Disney remake, Jay Maynard was a superfan of the original video game and movie, TRON. He gained widespread Internet fame after obsessively documenting his intricate costume. From there, he became a convention darling and appeared on a handful of late-night talk shows. (See the 10 nerdiest movie moments of 2010.)

But apparently the staff at a Minnesota movie theater hadn't heard of him. They refused to let him watch TRON: Legacy while wearing his light-up suit. Maynard says he believes the staff thought it would be too "distracting." But when you're watching a movie with tons of flashing lights and a bleeping electronic soundtrack, are you really going to be easily distracted? We say this is an act of nerd injustice. (via TMZ)

Bullshit if you ask me, but that's how americans deal with justice, their own reasonings and benefits.
If a theater here would do such a thing, they need to have to go through a thorough investigation whether that statement is correct and it would be a process of the theater against the man with the nerd supported by a governmental lawyer.
