Bad Behaviour At A Show

The Sunderland Empire (an ATG theatre) used to buy their sweets in cardboard boxes and before the performance, people were told to empty the sweets into the box now and not during the show. I don't understand why other theatres don't do this? I understand they have to take advantage of people whilst they are in the theatre, but at the detriment of loads of other people? It's just plain annoying and easily avoidable if they just do what the Empire used to do... I, for one, purposefully avoid certain shows (Wicked, et al) which are popular tourist destinations as I just don't see the point of wasting my money...

I had exactly the same happen me today at the Matinee performance of Wicked, but with a big group of Germans. It really was frustrating, particularly as I had paid for decent seats in the stalls. It was just the kids chatting throughout too, I was surprised the parents didn't intervene.
