Forbidden Rivoli Photo

Just after taking this photo in the Rivoli Cinema, I was approached by one of the staff and told that photography within the complex was not allowed. I asked to see some documentation, he said he'd be back in five. Five minutes later he pointed to a brochure on the history of the cinema and vaguely mentioned a sign upon which there were listed conditions of entry. I read the brochure, and there was no reference of cameras. I read the conditions of entry, it turned out cameras were only forbidden 'in the cinemas'. When I pointed this out to the poor usher, he made a pained face and said, 'well, it's just policy'. I wonder what places like this will do when cameras get so small it's impossible to tell that someone is using one (were almost there now...)
