Mexican Theater Etiquette

Mexico City's "Palace of Arts" under construction, circa 1904
In Mexican theaters, women always go bareheaded and the men wear their hats all the time the curtain is closed. During the performance they remove them. 
Frequently men rise in their seats and sweep the tiers of boxes with large glasses. It is considered something of an honor to have the glasses of a swell below, leveled at your box. Smoking is permitted in all theaters. —City of Mexico Correspondent, 1900
