A 16-year-old boy has been caught allegedly using a camcorder to tape the first showing of Spider-Man 2 in LA.
He was spotted by a cinema worker who was scanning the audience with night vision goggles.
He has been arrested. It is illegal in California to videotape films in a commercial cinema.
Films that are captured via camcorder are often sold illegally on the internet or sold all around the world as bootleg DVDs.
