In this day and age, I wonder if the whole idea of the Waynes going to a movie theater at all might be anachronistic. If they're so rich, wouldn't they have a fancy home-theater system in Wayne Manor? For that matter, why were they attending a theater in such a bad part of town in the first place, and why were they walking instead of being chauffeured?
Yeah. As much as I love Zorro, and as little as I care for Batman Begins
, I gotta say Nolan made the right call by sending 'em to an opera.
