Tiffany Flowers and her boyfriend, Alan Hanson, attended the showing of Lee Daniels’ The Butler at Regal Cinemas in Silver Spring, Maryland, but hardly expected to share the experience with armed guards. After receiving support from followers on Twitter, Flowers contacted the theater’s manager, who claimed that sold-out movies warrant armed security.  (Photo: The Weinstein Company)
