Can I Get Some Nachos, Too?

This is Renée Fleming in the Metropolitan Opera’s “Thaïs,” as seen in December at a movie theater at the Neshaminy Mall in Bensalem, Pa. The Met has sold more than a million tickets to movie-house showings this season. Anyway you slice it, a million tickets sold is pretty impressive. But Daniel J. Wakin, of the New York Times, asks some pretty interesting questions about these movie-house showings. And, if you missed it, A Liberal's Libretto asked some very similar questions a few months back.
